A 20-something-year-old Texan lottery player scooped a second-tier prize worth $1 Million in Powerball’s last drawing. He registered on theLotter’s platform (safe & secure online ticket purchasing platform) on Tuesday and decided to play Powerball online. The $1.2 Billion jackpot was too tempting and even though he didn’t win the big jackpot, he still won an amazing second-tier prize of $1 Million!
He can always try his luck again on Saturday as the Powerball jackpot rolled over once more and increased to an estimated $1.5 Billion!
theLotter’s Managing Director in the U.S. declared:
“We have been steadily expanding in Texas since we started our service in the state a year ago […]. Though we have had great lottery winners in Texas during that time, this is the first time a Texan customer wins a sum exceeding the $1 million threshold. We were especially excited when we realized he had only signed up with theLotter Texas the day before. We are all over the moon for him.”
US Powerball also made 19 new millionaires on Wednesday:
- 16 tickets won $1 Million by matching all 5 main numbers
- 3 tickets won $2 Million – these lucky Powerball winners selected the Power Play during the purchase of their tickets.
Overall, more than 7.2 million tickets cashed prizes totaling $74.9 Million! This means that more than 7.2 million tickets featured 2 or more Powerball winning numbers.
Saturday’s drawing will be Powerball’s 40th drawing since the jackpot was last won on August 3 in Pennsylvania. If it rolls over again, it will tie the game record for the number of consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner as the longest run in Powerball’s history ended on October 4, 2021, when a single ticket from California won $699.8 Million on the 41st drawing.
