Excitement and curiosity at the gas station today. Everyone here wanting to know who’s the lucky winner… fueling speculation.

The manager at the gas station who adamantly did not want to speak on camera says he yet to learn the identity of his financially fortunate customer. But whoever the lucky winner is bought a Powerball ticket with the numbers 5, 25, 38, 52, 67 and the Powerball: 24.
