Here are five things you should know if you score the Powerball in Arizona.
The latest Powerball jackpot winner purchased the $60 million ticket in a tiny town in the northwest corner of Arizona.
The winning ticket for the April 1 multi-state drawing was obtained at the Scenic General Store in Littlefield. No one had claimed the prize as of Monday morning, according to an Arizona Lottery official.
Results of the Saturday night drawing include lucky white ball numbers 09, 32, 36, 44 and 65 with a Powerball number of 01 and a Powerplay number of 03.
The Powerball winner can choose to receive the $60 million through a 30-year annuity or claim a lump sum of $36.4 million. He or she has 180 days from the drawing date to claim the prize at an Arizona Lottery office or by mail, according to a lottery statement.
More than 11,000 Arizona players won cash prizes ranging from $4 to $100 from the Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday night. And Scenic General Store won, too. Retailers that sell the winning jackpot ticket get a $5,000 bonus from the Arizona Lottery, on top of their 6.5 percent commission on lottery ticket sales, the lottery statement said.
The last time Arizona had a Powerball jackpot winner was in November 2012, and that person split the $587.5 million jackpot with another winner in Missouri.
An estimated $40 million jackpot is up for grabs in the next Powerball drawing on Wednesday, April 5. Participants must purchase their ticket before 6:59 p.m. on April 5 to be eligible for the drawing.
