A Powerball display is shown at a Casper gas station in 2016. Someone bought a lottery ticket worth $2 million from on Saturday from a Mills gas station. A ticket worth nearly a half million dollars was sold days earlier at a Casper gas station.

Someone just became a millionaire and they might not even know it.

A Powerball lottery ticket worth $2 million was sold Saturday at the Maverik gas station along West Yellowstone Highway in Mills, according to a press release from the Wyoming Lottery Corporation.

The winner has yet to come forward to claim the prize.

The winning numbers from the May 5 drawing were 14, 29, 36, 57, 61 and the Powerball was 17. The ticket’s purchaser matched all five regular numbers, but not the Powerball.

This news comes just days after a Cowboy Draw lottery ticket worth $466,159 was purchased on Thursday at the Loaf’ N Jug along East Second Street in Casper.

This prize also had yet to be claimed.

“Having two big winners from the same [area] in a span of just a couple of days is a really exciting time for us,” Jon Clontz, CEO of WyoLotto, states in the release.

To celebrate, WyoLotto will be hosting two parties on May 21. The events are planned for 10 a.m. to noon at the Loaf ‘N Jug and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Maverik.

More than 3 million ticket purchasers have won more than $42.5 million since the lottery launched almost four years ago, according to the release.

If you think you have a winning ticket, call the WyoLotto office at 855-995-6886.
