BECKLEY - Another ticket sold in Beckley matched 5 numbers from the Powerball drawing last Saturday.

Store Owner and Manager from RJs Dry Hill Merchants in Beckley, Ronald Lambert, said their store has now had $2 million winners in the last 2 years. He said he does not remember selling the winning ticket, but there have been some new faces coming in and out. The fact that he sold another winning ticket, Lambert said, can be attributed to pure luck and he hopes the women that hit the jackpot enjoy their winnings. "I've heard it was some women here in Beckley, so I'm hoping that they're all very happy from the money that they're going to get from it,” said Lambert.

 

Signs outside the store encourage travelers to play the West Virginia Lottery; you never know who could be the next big winner.
