It wasn’t the jackpot, but a few lucky Massachusetts residents picked winning tickets in Monday’s Powerball drawing.

One lucky winner from Seekonk has already claimed his $1 million (before taxes) prize. Raymond Carey bought a Quic Pic ticket at the Quality Gas & Mart on Taunton Avenue. He claimed his prize at the Massachusetts State Lottery’s Dorchester headquarters on Tuesday.

LUCK OF THE DRAW

Another winning ticket in Monday’s drawing was sold in Haverhill, at the Bradford Mobil Mart on South Main Street, but no one has claimed the prize yet. Both retailers will get a $10,000 bonus for the sale of the winning tickets.

A ticket sold in Boston at Downtown Convenience on Boylston Street also won a $1 million prize in Saturday’s drawing, but nobody has claimed it.

To get the $1 million prize, the first five numbers on a ticket have to match the drawing. To win the jackpot, all five numbers plus the Powerball number have to match the drawing. A ticket sold in California won the Powerball jackpot in Monday’s drawing, which was for $699.8 million, or $496 million in cash. According to the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission, it was the fifth-largest Powerball jackpot and seventh-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.
