$50K Powerball winner comes out of City Market in Vail

Daily staff report

VAIL — The three winning tickets for the $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot were not in Colorado, but one ticket sold at City Market in Vail gave someone a $50,000 payday.

Vail’s City Market will receive a $2,000 commission bonus for selling the ticket.

Lines have been long at retailers around the county recently as those in the high country tested their luck. The winning Powerball tickets, though, were in Chino Hills, California; Munford, Tennessee; and Melbourne Beach, Florida.

Across Colorado, more than a dozen Powerball players cashed in by getting four out of the five numbers. Those that paid the extra $1 for the PowerPlay won $100,000, and those who did not won $50,000.

The $100,000 tickets were sold in Brighton, Denver, Colorado Spring, Fort Garland and Englewood.

Since the Powerball jackpot began on Nov. 4, the Colorado Lottery sold more than $60 million in tickets. There were five $100,000 winners in the state, and 10 $50,000 winners.

The three big winners, who will split the record jackpot, landed on the winning numbers drawn Wednesday night, 4 8 19 27 34 and Powerball 10.
