The West Virginia Lottery said a ticket for Saturday’s Powerball drawing worth $1 million was sold in Beckley.
Lottery Director John Musgrave said in a news release that the winner has not yet come forward to claim the prize.
The ticket, which matched five numbers and only missed the Powerball, was purchased at the Little General Store on Robert C. Byrd Drive in Beckley, the lottery said.
The winning numbers for Saturday’s drawing were: 3-7-21-44-55 and the Powerball number was 16.
No one matched all six numbers from the drawing, so Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot is now an estimated $260 million.
This is the third Powerball ticket worth $1 million sold in West Virginia in the last two weeks. Mary Carr of Barboursville and the Gillispie Family from Julian claimed $1 million Powerball prizes on March 8.
The individual or individuals in possession of the latest $1 million ticket are encouraged to call the West Virginia Lottery at 304-558-0500 for instructions on claiming the prize.
