According to workers at the 7-Eleven store at 505 E. Main St. in Batavia, there was a one million dollar winner in the October 29, 2014 Powerball drawing. The winner is a regular player at the mini mart.

The NYS Lottery says the winner used "Quick Pick" and won the second-place prize of $1,000,000.00.

They had 5 of 5 numbers, but no Powerball number. There was no first-place winner that day. The Jackpot was for $142,000,000.00.

A store employee says the winner is still in shock and will be receiving the second-place prize soon.

From the NY State Lottery Commission:

The New York Lottery recently announced that a Batavia Take Five player won $32,994. Lori Siedlecki purchased the winning ticket at the Wilson Farms store at 355 W. Main St. in the City of Batavia.

The New York Lottery continues to be North America's largest and most profitable Lottery, earning more than $39.3 billion in education support statewide since its founding more than 40 years ago.

It contributed nearly $2.67 billion in fiscal year 2009-2010 to help support education in New York State, which was more than 12 percent of total state education funding to local school districts.

Lottery revenue is distributed to local school districts by the same statutory formula used to distribute other state aid to education. It takes into account both a school district's size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of lottery school funding.
