WAHPETON, N.D. — A lottery player who won $1 million in Wednesday night's draw on a ticket purchased in North Dakota has claimed the prize, according to the state lottery agency.
The winner from Stillwater, Minnesota, who chose to remain anonymous and did not have immediate plans on how to spend the money, drove to Bismarck to collect the prize, the North Dakota Lottery said in a news release Friday, Oct. 15.
The player won by matching five white balls. The winning numbers were 23, 29, 47, 59 and 60, and the Powerball was 15. The Power Play multiplier was 2.
The winning ticket was sold at the Cenex convenience store at 2019 9th St. N. in the southeastern North Dakota town of Wahpeton. The store will get $5,000 for selling the winning ticket. The same store sold a $1 million Powerball ticket in 2013.
Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize. Prizes over $599 have to be claimed at the North Dakota Lottery office, which recently moved to 1720 Burlington Drive in Bismarck.
Lottery officials said that the winner of Wednesday's draw did not have immediate plans on how to use the prize.
The Powerball jackpot for the draw on Saturday, Oct. 16, is $60 million. For winning numbers and other information, visit lottery.nd.gov.
