RITZVILLE – The local grocery store sold a $50,000 prize-winning lottery ticket in the Dec. 13 Powerball drawing.

According to the Washington State Lottery, the winner claimed the prize money last week. The state Lottery Commission could not provide the winners name by press time.

Lottery officials said the ticket was purchased at Akins Fresh Market, 610 W. First Ave.

In the Dec. 13 drawing, white balls selected were 03, 08, 41, 56 and 64. The Powerball was 18.

The winner matched 4-of-5 white balls, plus the Powerball number in the drawing, lottery officials said, noting the odds of winning $50,000 is 1 in 913,000.

“There was a handful of $50,000 tickets sold in recent Powerballs,” lottery spokesman Dan Miller said.

Forty-five states offer Powerball as a legal lottery.
