GEISMAR, La. (WAFB) - A Thibodaux man is the lucky winner of a $1 million Powerball prize after purchasing a ticket in Geismar, according to the Louisiana Lottery.

Raymond Hawkins claimed his prize after matching all five white ball numbers during the Sept. 24 Powerball drawing. He purchased the ticket at the RacTrac location on LA 73.

After tax withholdings, Hawkins received $717,500. The gas station also earned a 1% bonus or $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.

“I think this is going to attract a lot of customers to our store,” said RacTrac store manager Shakeisha Lundry. “RaceTrac 249 is the best RaceTrac. It’s where the winners are.”
