The ticket sold in Watertown ended up winning a $1 million prize.
Massachusetts Lottery Executive Director Michael Sweeney said officials were manually recording the names of the retailers that sold the winning ticket and transcribed it incorrectly. "Our internal systems, and I want to be clear about this, our internal systems always had the correct information". A $1 million winning ticket sold in at the Pit Stop on Dutch Lake Drive in Howard Lake. "We are just everyday people who have worked hard all our life.We just happened to hit it big", Merle said.

Powerball is played in 44 U.S. states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, all of which oversee the game collectively. A third prize is matching four numbers drawn plus the Powerball. "It matched the first five numbers and missed only the Powerball number". A coworker checked her numbers and told her she just won.
But don't beat yourself up too much - the odds of winning the jackpot were one in 292.2 million.
Winning less than that would have been fine with many, it seemed. The prize was the second largest prize in Powerball history. It's the largest ever jackpot with a single USA victor - and the second biggest overall jackpot in US history.
