Two people who bought lottery tickets in Massachusetts are millionaires, but who they are is still a mystery.
Though no one won last night’s Powerball jackpot, two individuals who purchased Powerball tickets at Pittsfield and Andover convenience stores have won the game’s second-tier prize of $1 million, the Massachusetts Lottery said.
A horde of other hopefuls nationwide were not so lucky, but surging sales boosted the jackpot for the upcoming weekend drawing to $550 million, up from $360 million last night.
The two ticketholders have yet to come forward and claim their prizes, redeemable either as a smaller lump sum or a 30-year annuity, from the lottery’s Braintree office, the Lottery said.
The next drawing for the Powerball jackpot is Saturday at 10:59 p.m.
