3 million-dollar Powerball tickets sold in Michigan

The Detroit News

Three players who bought tickets in Michigan for the Powerball game won a million dollars each after successfully picking the first five numbers of Saturday night’s drawing, according to the Michigan Lottery.

Those numbers were 16-19-32-34-57. The winning tickets are each worth a $1 million prize.

The tickets were sold at: The Pilot Travel Center, located at 750 Baker Road in Dexter; the Speedway gas station, located at 800 Washington Avenue in Holland; and Meijer, located at 3175 S. Rochester Road in Rochester Hills.

No one won the $949.8 million Powerball jackpot on Saturday, so the pot has grown to an estimated $1.3 billion, the largest in U.S. lottery history. The next drawing is Wednesday.

While the Powerball began in April 1992, Michigan didn’t participate until January 2010. Donald Lawson of Lapeer won the largest Powerball jackpot in Michigan history ($337 million) in August 2012.

The winners should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect their big prize, according to a release.

Powerball tickets are valid for one year from the drawing date.
