Another $1 million ticket sold in Putnam County

By From staff reports

A $1 million Powerball ticket was sold in Putnam County, the state's fourth million-dollar winner in the last two weeks.

A ticket sold in Winfield for the Wednesday night drawing matched five numbers but missed the Powerball.

"West Virginia is on fire! A Powerball ticket worth $1 million was sold in Winfield for last night's drawing. That is FOUR $1 million wins in West Virginia in less than 11 days!" read a post on the West Virginia Lottery's Facebook page.

The name of the store was not provided.

The jackpot for Wednesday's drawing was $425.3 million. One ticket sold in California matched all six numbers, 1-17-35-49-54 and the Powerball 34.

Tickets matching five of six numbers were sold in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Three other $1 million winning tickets have been sold in the state in the last 11 days. The previous two tickets were sold back to back - a first for the state.

A Powerball ticket that matched five numbers was sold in Wheeling for the Feb. 12 drawing. That winner has not yet claimed their $1 million prize.

Man resident Randy Brown bought his winning Mega Millions ticket on Feb. 7 at the C and L SuperServ in Mallory. The Beckley 27, all workers at the Beckley Register-Herald newspaper, bought their winning Powerball ticket at RJ's Dry Hill Merchants on Feb 8.
