Winning $213-Million Powerball Ticket Sold At Fresno Store

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Someone in Fresno is multi–millionaire after buying the winning Powerball ticket worth $213–million. We still don't know who the winner is, but we do know where the winning ticket was sold.

The California Lottery says it was bought at the "Fast N Easy" on the corner of Shields and Armstrong in Fresno. The convenience store gets a prize too. The owner says he will receive a little bit more than $1–million dollars for selling the winning ticket.

"We're really happy;" says "Fast N Easy" Owner Vinny Vohra, I'm especially happy for the person who won."

Vohra adds he doesn't know who the winner is, but he hopes they are a regular. While the Powerball is a big win this isn't the "Fast N Easy's" first lottery victory. The convenience store has sold four other winning tickets, but the prizes were much smaller. Vohra says it's pretty exciting they get a piece of the huge prize this time and he's going to throw a big party for his family and friends.

"I want to help the economy, so I'll spend it pretty fast," adds Vohra.

If you did buy a Powerball ticket at the Fresno convenience store and want to double check your numbers, they are...3–23–31–34–47 and Powerball number 13.

The lucky person with the winning ticket has exactly one year to claim their prize.
