UPDATE: $1,000,000 Powerball Winning Ticket Sold in Isabella County

Posted: Updated:

In this update, we now know the name of the millionaire who bought a lucky ticket in Blanchard.

Kristen Martin pocketed a $1,000,000 prize during a drawing this week.

The Powerball prize is still growing.

It's now at around $600,000,000,  the second largest in history.

The drawing is tomorrow night.

Lottery officials expect Powerball Jackpots to continue to grow.

That's due to, in part, the game being redesigned, allowing more prizes to be given out.

According to the Michigan Lottery's website, one person in Blanchard woke up $1,000,000 richer.

The winner won $1,000,000 in last night's Powerball drawing.

No one has won the Powerball jackpot yet, which has climbed $550,000,000.

The next drawing is scheduled for Saturday.

9&10's Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jeff Blevins spoke to the lucky store and have more details.
