Bath resident wins $2 million Powerball prize

BATH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A Bath resident has turned $2 into $2 million after playing the Powerball from the Maine Lottery.

The lucky resident purchased a ticket for the May 6th Powerball drawing at Brackett's Market in Bath, selecting some of the numbers himself and allowing the computer to pick the rest. He also opted to spend an extra dollar to add the Power Play option to his ticket, which doubled his $1 million win to $2 million.

Steve & Kim Brackett, co-owners of Brackett's Market, were excited by the news that one of their customers had won. "We are thrilled that we sold the winning ticket and even more pleased that we're able to share this wonderful benefit with our employees," said Steve Brackett.

The store received a $20,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket and the Bracketts' plan to share the money with their employees. This is the first time Brackett's has sold a winning Maine Lottery ticket of $1 million or more.
