EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. -

Colorado has two new millionaires, including one who bought their winning Powerball ticket at a gas station near Ellicott.

The Colorado Lottery says two Colorado stores each sold a Powerball ticket worth $2 million in the drawing Wednesday for a $448 million jackpot. One ticket was sold at East Valley Liquors in Clifton, and the other was sold at Fuel-B's near Ellicott. The stores each get a $3,000 retailer selling bonus.
    
The $448 million jackpot is going to the holders of three winning tickets that were sold in New Jersey and Minnesota.
