Burlington, NC -- The Super Kmart Express on Huffman Mill Road in Burlington is known for it's lottery winners.
"I've sold a $200,000 winner on the scratch off about 2 years [ago], and then I actually sold a $10,000 winner scratch off about a year ago," explained Susan Price, employee, Super Kmart Express. "This is the biggest we've had, the $1 million winner."
The convenience store sold a $1 million winning Powerball ticket, but the winner has not come forward.

The winner matched all five numbers on the white balls, but missed the Powerball. Ryan Smith missed all the numbers on the white balls but got the Powerball right.
"I had this all planned out.. kind of get a team of financial advisors to deal with it because it would be such a shock for me," said Smith.
It wasn't the shock he was hoping for, but he's a winner nonetheless.
"I wish I was the million obviously, but that kind of stinks coming here and knowing that million dollar winner could have been right in front of me or behind me. Winning $4 is OK," said Smith.
It's just $4 richer, but it's a win, and it's enough to buy another ticket. For Ryan, that's all the reason he needs.
While no one in North Carolina won the big jackpot, almost 270,000 people, like Ryan, won some money buying tickets in this Powerball drawing.
The million dollar winner has 180 days to collect their prize from the lottery headquarters in Raleigh.
