Vermont Lottery officials announced today that the owners of the $1,000,000 Powerball ticket sold at the Circle K convenience store located on Main St. in Lyndonville, VT, came forward last Friday. The winning ticket matched five out of five numbers, not including the Powerball. Wednesday's winning numbers were 02, 09, 26, 45, 47, and the Powerball, 11. The Powerball jackpot was not hit Wednesday or Saturday, allowing the Powerball jackpot to roll to an estimated $245,000,000 for this Wednesday's, September 11th drawing.
Randy and Sandy Amadon, lifelong residents of Lyndonville, discovered their good fortune Friday morning as they listened to the morning news. "I heard them say the Circle K in Lyndonville, then looked up and saw the TV screen and said, "Those are our numbers," said Randy, still in disbelief. The Amadons, who have no immediate plans for their new found wealth, have played the same numbers for the last 10 years.
Greg Smith, Executive Director of the Vermont Lottery also enthused, "I love to see Vermont players win BIG on the national and regional games we offer. We have had numerous 2nd prize winners already this year. Hopefully this is a warm-up for a large jackpot win by a Vermonter."
