Six winning $1 million Powerball tickets were bought at a QuikTrip gas station in Glendale. Only one person has claimed their ticket since Wednesday’s drawing.
“What we do know is these are not Quick Pick tickets,” said Karen Bach with the Arizona Lottery. “They are individually selected numbers on a play slip or, in this case, multiple play slips.”
Bach said this is definitely a unique situation, but the tickets are legitimate.
3TV spoke to the manager of the QuikTrip. Off camera he told us there is only one winner. A man bought six tickets with five identical numbers. However, the Powerball numbers were each different.
It’s not the same story we got from a lottery official.
“We can’t speculate,” Bach said. “We do not know who has those tickets in their possession. Until we have them we have no way of knowing.”
One person has come to pick up their winnings as of now. The remaining five ticket remain unverified. Sure does sound suspicious. Wouldn’t be surprising if the remaining five tickets belong to one person.
