San Antonio resident wins $1M from Texas Lottery Powerball ticket

Someone in San Antonio just became a whole lot richer. A local resident won a $1 million prize from a Powerball ticket that was sold on the city’s Northside. The San Antonian claimed the prize from the drawing on March 4, according to a news release from the Texas Lottery Commission on Wednesday, March 15.

The ticket was purchased at Circle K located at 3411 Thousand Oaks Drive, in San Antonio. The claimant elected to remain anonymous. The second-tier winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (10-16-18-40-66), but not the red Powerball number (16).

Powerball Grand Prizes currently start at $20 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Players win the grand prize by matching five numbers from a field of 69 numbers and one Powerball number from a field of 26 numbers.

Drawings are broadcast each Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:12 p.m.

The Texas Lottery has been around for over 30 years, selling its first ticket in 1992. It has generated $36.6 billion in revenue for the state and distributed $79.9 billion in prizes to lottery players. Since 1997, the Texas Lottery has contributed $30.6 billion to the Foundation School Fund, which supports public education in Texas.

Certain revenues also benefit state programs like the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance, according to the Texas Lottery.
