    It may not be the whopping half-a-billion record Powerball jackpot, but there are some people from the Philadelphia area who hit it big. NBC10's Claudia Rivero talked to the manager of a Montgomery County Sunoco, that sold a winning ticket.

    While no one in our area claimed the top $587.5-million Powerball jackpot, there were several lucky ticket holders who matched five numbers to win $1 million.

    One of those tickets was purchased by a regular lottery player at the Sunoco, located at 330 East Lancaster Avenue in Wynnewood, Montgomery County.

    NBC10's Claudia Rivero spoke with the store manager, who says he got a visit Thursday morning from the lucky ticket holder just minutes after lottery officials called to let him know his store sold the million-dollar ticket.
