Name of Million Dollar Powerball Winner from East Liverpool Released


 The name of the million dollar Powerball winner from a ticket purchased in Hancock County has been released. 

Steven and Stacy Wilson of East Liverpool went to Charleston on Thursday to collect their check. 

When the identity of the winner was a mystery on Thursday afternoon, Jerry Chaney of Chaney’s Sunoco was joking that he hoped the winner was a truthful person who keeps their promises. 

“Everybody that usually buys a ticket and stands in line usually says if I get the winning ticket off of you, I’m gonna take care of you. Well we’re hoping he wasn’t lying! And we don’t just get a post card from the Caribbean saying Wish you were here, thanks for the ticket!” 

Chaney said it was a good day for him, as he became a grandfather for the 11th time. 

The gas station will be getting one percent of the Powerball win, which is $10,000.
