As was reported on Thursday by Digital Journal
, two winning lottery tickets were purchased in Wednesday's $579.9 million Powerball jackpot drawing. One ticket was sold near Phoenix, Arizona, the other in Missouri.
On Thursday, a man who appears to be a road construction worker strolled casually into the Marlboro Village Exxon in Upper Marlboro, MD. The unidentified man walked to the counter after pulling several lottery tickets out of his pocket. He begins to check the winning numbers and a few moments later he begins to excitedly wave his arms. The man then hands the ticket to the clerk, Nagassi Ghebre, and asks the clerk to confirm that the numbers on his ticket are indeed the winning Powerball numbers.
According to WTOP
, both the clerk and another customer in the store look at the ticket and confirm that it does have the winning numbers. He says he purchased the tickets in Arizona, and clearly excited and perhaps in a bit of shock, runs out of the store.
If the man in the video is one of the two winners, he will have to return to Arizona to claim his winnings within 180 days, according KPHO
