DORCHESTER, Mass. (WWLP) – The Powerball jackpot for Monday night’s drawing is an estimated $613 million.
Monday’s jackpot is the game’s largest since November 7 of last year when a U.S. lottery record $2.4 billion jackpot was won on a ticket in California. Most recently, someone won $31 million in the Mega Millions jackpot at a Stop & Shop in Belchertown last week. It was the fourth Mega Millions jackpot to be won in-state since 2002.
22News spoke with local store owners who are hoping that trend continues.
“I’ve been selling tickets for 30 years. I don’t know how many tickets I’ve sold, millions and millions of dollars worth of tickets. I figure Buckeye Brothers is due for a big winner,” said David Glantz, owner of Buckeye Bros in Springfield.
We will have those winning numbers tonight on 22News at 11.
