OLYMPIA:
While no one in the Evergreen State hit last night's estimated $587.5 million Powerball jackpot, there are still thousands of winners from the game in Washington. There were a total of 8,924,125 Powerball winners across the country last night, and 155,703 of those winning tickets were sold in Washington! These winning tickets are worth a total of more than $868,000.

Last night's drawing produced six $10,000 winners. Those Powerball winning tickets were sold at the following stores:

  • Yellow Pine Market in Kettle Falls
  • Hank's Grocery in Bremerton
  • Canyon Road Shell in Puyallup
  • Shell Station on Dearborn in Seattle
  • Mary's Corner Market in Chehalis
  • Zip Mart in Kirkland


"This was a great week for Washington's Lottery players!" explained Washington's Lottery Director of External Affairs and Stakeholder Outreach, Arlen Harris. "Washington's Lottery had $10.1 million in Powerball ticket sales alone for last night's drawing. A normal week for Powerball sales in Washington is $1 million. We love high jackpots because the more tickets we sell, the more the state benefits."
