INDIANAPOLIS - Who says lightning doesn't strike twice? The same Speedway gas station that sold a winning Hoosier Lottery ticket worth $9.5 million last Saturday sold a Powerball ticket worth $1 million this weekend.
Hoosier Lottery officials said a ticket purchased at the Speedway at 8101 E. 21st Street in Indianapolis. It matched the first five numbers of the multi-state game, but didn't match the Powerball number.
The winning numbers in Saturday's drawing were 2-5-31-39-41, with the Powerball of 29. No one matched all six numbers, and Wednesday's Powerball jackpot will increase to an estimated $80 million.
As RTV6 reported earlier this week, several hairstylists are sparring over last week's $9.5 million jackpot they claim was bought in an office lottery pool, but the person who bought the ticket said she purchased a separate ticket that won.
A temporary restraining order was issued in that case, and the issue is expected to go before a judge this week.
