$1 million winning Powerball ticket sold at Grandview-area Sunoco


A winning Powerball ticket worth $1 million was purchased Wednesday, Nov. 28, at a gas station near Grandview.

Lottery officials have confirmed a group of people purchased the ticket at Sunoco, 648 Grandview Ave., said Danielle Frizzi-Babb, deputy director, office of communications with the Ohio Lottery Commission.

Frizzi-Babb said she could not confirm reports the ticket was purchased by 22 Columbus police officers.

"That's what I've heard, but we're still waiting for them to come forward and claim their prize," she said. "We do know it was a group that purchased the ticket."

The winning ticket had five of the numbers selected in Wednesday's drawing, but not the Powerball number, Frizzi-Babb said.

The Sunoco gas station will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket, she said.

Along with the Columbus ticket, a winning ticket worth $2 million was sold in Cleveland, Frizzi-Babb said.

The holders of two tickets with all the correct numbers, purchased in Arizona and Missouri, will split the $579.9 million grand prize.
