The manager of that store claims they know who bought the winning ticket.

"A gentleman, who is one of our regular customers, popped into our store early this morning and exclaimed, 'you guys sold me a million dollar winning Powerball ticket - thank you, thank you'," said Betsy Byrd, store manager of Riverside Mobile.

"My staff and I are excited that our store sold a big prize winning ticket, but we're absolutely overjoyed that we sold the winning ticket to someone that we all know," added Byrd.

Six Illinois Lottery players have won a prize of a million dollars or more this year with Powerball since January 2022.

Riverside Mobile will get a bonus of $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.
