Maine Man Claims $1 Million Powerball Prize
According to WGME, a Gray man has claimed a $1 million Powerball prize.
Peter Seavor, who won in the January 20th drawing, purchased his winning Powerball ticket at the Hannaford Supermarket on Shaker Road in Gray.
Representatives from the Maine Lottery said, Seavor took home $710,000 after federal and state withholding taxes. Additionally, the Hannaford store that sold the winning ticket earned a $20,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
In order to get a $1 million payout Seavor matched 5 numbers.
The Maine Lottery also says Glenn Theriault and Stephanie Lemieux, both from Turner, split a million-dollar prize in the $50,000,000 Cash Blast game from the Maine Lottery.
January was a big month for Maine lottery winners. There were a handful of six figure winners and thirty-seven people won at least $10,000. Statewide, players won $3.6 million.
