Boron wins $2 million after buying Powerball ticket in San Tan Valley


Teresa Boron is Arizona’s newest millionaire. According to the Arizona Lottery Facebook page, Ms. Boron won $2 million after purchasing a Powerball ticket for the Jan. 16 drawing from the Fry’s Food Store at Gantzel and Combs roads in San Tan Valley.

According to the Facebook post,  Ms. Boron typically does not play Powerball, but when the jackpot rolled high leading up to Jan. 13’s record-breaking $1.5 billion drawing, she purchased a few tickets and won around $14.

Once the jackpot reset to $40 million, she and her husband thought, “$40 million is just as good as $1.5 billion,” so she purchased a few tickets for the Jan. 16 drawing.

Ms. Boron checked her numbers on the Sunday morning following the draw, and to her surprise her ticket had five matching white numbers. She also selected the Power Play feature, making her ticket a $2 million winner, according to the post.

Ms. Boron and her family are excited about the win and plan to take a family trip. She also has a new grandchild in Ohio, where she would like to buy a small home to visit frequently, according to the Facebook post.
