BERLIN, Vt. - A Northeast Kingdom couple are millionaires after having a winning Powerball ticket. 

Vermont Lottery officials say the couple bought the ticket at Currier's Quality Market in Glover, Vt. 

The winning ticket was a Quick Pick, with the winning numbers of 28, 33, 41, 44, 59 and the Powerball was 21. The couple matched all five numbers, excluding the Powerball.

A press release says the young couple discovered their fortune early Thursday morning after they checked the winning number's on the Vermont Lottery's website. 

Since the Powerball jackpot was not hit Wednesday, the jackpot will increase to an estimated $50,000,000 for Saturday's March 29th drawing.
