PHOENIX (Tucson News Now) - While the country waits for the grand prize winner of last Saturday's $590 million Powerball jackpot to come forward, a Phoenix nurse has claimed a $1 million runner-up prize.
The Arizona Lottery says Krista Crawley will pick up $1 million for matching five out of six numbers for the drawing held on May 11, one week before the record jackpot. Crawley discovered she was a winner on Mother's Day, but waited to speak to a financial advisor to get "all her ducks in a row" before claiming the prize this past Monday. She tells the Lottery she is planning to go on a family vacation and invest the rest of her winnings.
Two other tickets from last Saturday's drawing are worth $1 million. They were sold in the Phoenix and Safford areas. Those winners have not come forward yet.
