$1 million winning Powerball tickets sold in Evesham, N.J.

    A trip to 7-Eleven just got a whole lot more interesting than Slurpees and gum.

    The 7-Eleven at Main Street and North Maple Avenue in Evesham, N.J., will now forever be known as the spot where a $1 million Powerball ticket was sold.

    The ticket was sold Wednesday night, and is the only one in New Jersey to win so much. The $337 million jackpot ticket was sold in Michigan.


    “We’re dying to know who it is,” owner Misha Alkiyal told the Burlington County Times. “We’re hoping it’s a local.”
