DEARBORN, MISSOURI  (WKZO) --   One of the two big winners of this week’s Powerball Jackpot will be revealed this morning at a news conference in the High School Gym in tiny Dearborn, Missouri.   The other ticket was sold in Arizona.

While we missed out on the big prize the State Lottery Bureau estimates there were over 300-thousand smaller prizes won in Michigan Wednesday.

Spokesperson Andi Brancato says you don’t need to get all 6 numbers right to win cash, there are smaller prizes if you just get some of the numbers.  She says a lot of first time players may not know that.

She says 97% of the money they don’t hand out in prizes gets plowed into the state School Aide fund.

A million dollar winner bought his or her ticket at the East Paris Discount Liquor store in Kentwood, a ten thousand dollar winner got their ticket at the quick stop in Kalamazoo and another $10,000 winner got their ticket at the Meijer in Battle Creek.
