Powerball winning ticket sold at Trenton 7-Eleven
The winning Powerball ticket for Saturday night's $429.6 million annuity jackpot was sold at the 7-Eleven at 750 Chambers Street in Trenton officials said Sunday.
The ticket was purchased as a cash ticket and is valued at $284 million. The ticket matched the five white balls and the Powerball.
There was an excitement in the air as customers and employees inside were buzzing and talking about the winning ticket as the media gathered outside.
Luis Sandobol, 20, is a store employee who believes he sold the winning ticket to a woman who occasionally stops by the store to buy lottery tickets "It's my one shot at fame," Sandobol said of all the attention. "I didn't do anything except sell the ticket. Hopefully the person who won can do something nice with the money. I hope it's someone from here. There's a lot of hard working people here. They deserve it."
The winning numbers for the May 7 drawing were 05, 25, 26, 44, 66. The Red Powerball number was 09. Powerball reported two $10,000 winning tickets sold in New Jersey for matching four numbers and the Power Ball as part of 171,570 winning tickets sold for Saturday night's drawing.
