PHOENIX (May 8, 2012) — The Arizona Lottery announced today that all six $1 million Powerball second prize tickets won in Arizona from the drawing on Wednesday, April 25 have been claimed.
The six $1 million winning tickets were purchased by one Glendale resident at the QuikTrip located at 6702 W. Glendale Ave. in Glendale. The winning numbers were
4-25-29-34-43 PB 29.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, claimed the six tickets over the course of three visits to the Arizona Lottery’s Phoenix office.
These six wins bring Arizona’s count of $1 million second prize Powerball wins to a total of 10, since the new $2 Powerball game launched on January 15, 2012. In addition to this winner from Glendale, Arizona winners have included two Tucson residents, a Phoenix resident and a couple from Fort Mohave. The new game has created approximately 100 millionaires nationwide.
“It was incredible for Arizona to have six $1 million second prize Powerball wins in one night and the excitement around the winning tickets has had everyone buzzing,” said Karen Bach, assistant director of budget, products and communications for the Arizona Lottery. “Arizona is second in the nation for having the most $2 Powerball second prize winners since the game launched and we expect to be congratulating more Arizona millionaires this year than ever before.”
The new $2 Powerball game offers many appealing features to players, including better overall odds and jackpots that grow bigger, faster. The starting jackpot doubled from $20 million to $40 million and the second prize for matching all five numbers, without the Powerball, increased from $200,000 to $1 million.
The next $2 Powerball draw is Wednesday, May 9 for an estimated jackpot of $70 million.
