GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Another millionaire was made in Grand Junction during the Colorado Lottery’s Lotto drawing Wednesday night. 

The player picked all six numbers of 6-9-16-18-26-31 and won the $3 million jackpot. This is the second million-dollar jackpot winner in the same city in less than a week.

Judy Finchum won the $133.2 million Powerball jackpot in Saturday's drawing. The Grand Junction resident is the state’s biggest jackpot winner.

Two other Powerball players who bought tickets in Grand Junction won large prizes. A ticket sold at a Walmart Fuel Center won $100,000 and a ticket sold at a Safeway won $50,000.

Wednesday’s Lotto winner has yet to come forward. The winning Lotto ticket was sold at a City Market on Highway 50 South.

Lottery officials say this is the wildest lucky streak they have ever seen.
