Two Illinoisans Win $1 Million Each in Wednesday's Powerball Drawing
Two jackpot-winning tickets were sold in Arizona and Missouri, but two Illinois winners also received a lovely holiday gift.
By now, it's widely known that the winning Powerball tickets from Wednesday's $550 million drawing were sold in Arizona and Missouri.
Those winning tickets matched all five numbers and the Powerball number. Each winner will receive about $293.7 million.
However, right here in Illinois, two ticket holders matched all five numbers as well (not the Powerball number) and will receive $1 million each. Those tickets were sold at Casey's General Store in Fairmont and Barts Supermarket in Flanagan, according to the Illinois Lottery results page.
Tickets were selling at a rate of 130,000 a minute nationwide on Wednesday, according to CBS News.
