Local Woman Claims $2 Million Powerball Prize; Will Share With Office Pool

January 9, 2018

A local woman has claimed a $2 million prize Powerball prize.

The Florida Lottery said 30-year old Regina Spence claimed the prize from the January 3 Powerball drawing. The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers, but did not match the Powerball. Spence is formerly from Walnut Hill and now resides in Pensacola.

Spence bought the ticket as part of an office pool with 33 of her coworkers at Navy Federal Credit Union

“We were shocked and thrilled to win this prize! I’m planning to use my portion to make some repairs to my home and buy my parents a new refrigerator,” she said.

Spence purchased the winning ticket from Circle K, located at 7950 Pensacola Boulevard. The store will receive a $5,000 bonus commission for selling the ticket.
