#powerball Queen Creek Resident Claims $1 Million Powerball Second Prize Winning Ticket

June 11th, 2013

The Arizona Lottery announces that the second $1 million Powerball second prize winning ticket from the drawing on May 18 has been claimed by a woman from Queen Creek. This is the last of three second prize winning tickets to be claimed from the record-breaking $590.5 million Powerball jackpot run.

On Saturday, June 8, Valerie Sanchez decided to get her Powerball tickets from her car and check them for the draw on May 18. She got the surprise of a lifetime when she saw that one of the ten lines she purchased was a $1 million winner.

Sanchez is still in a state of shock, but plans to pay off her bills and get a new car. She will decide what to do with the rest of her winnings after she talks to her financial advisor. Her advice to other Lottery players is to "check your tickets!"

"We're so happy that Valerie finally checked her ticket and claimed her $1 million prize," said Karen Bach, director of budget, products, and communications for the Arizona Lottery. "It's been exciting to have more Powerball second prize winners in Arizona, especially our three most recent which occurred during the record-breaking jackpot run."

Sanchez purchased her winning ticket at the Chevron located at 1990 S. Alma School Road in Chandler.
