Casey Langan / $50,000

CLIVE, Iowa — For nearly a year, a Powerball® ticket winning a $50,000 prize rode around forgotten in a West Des Moines man’s work car. Fast forward to this month, and it’s a bad news-good news situation for the man.

Lawrence Ginn / $1,000,000

RALEIGH – Lawrence Ginn of Washington, N.C. took home Wednesday a $1 million Powerball prize.

Ginn put together a set of lucky numbers that matched all five white balls in the Oct. 21 drawing, beating odds of 1 in 11.6 million.

September 2020, LLC / $94.8 Million

NEW YORK (November 10, 2020) – A Malta man has claimed the $94.8 million jackpot from the September 16 Powerball drawing. His ticket matched all six numbers drawn, making him New York’s newest Lottery multi-millionaire.

The winning Powerball numbers for the September 16 drawing were 10-17-31-51-53 Powerball 1.

The lucky winner has claimed the prize through the September 2020, LLC. He will receive a one-time lump sum payment totaling $50,868,332 after required withholdings.

Richard Martinez / $1,000,000

LANSING, Mich. – Patience paid off – to the tune of $1 million – for a Saginaw man who regularly plays Powerball.

Richard Martinez, 72, matched the five white balls – 05-12-34-45-56 – in the Aug. 15 drawing to win the big prize. He bought his winning ticket at the 7-Eleven, located at 7970 Gratiot Road in Saginaw.

Shelley Arnold / $1,000,000

Salem, Ore. – When Shelley Arnold realized she had won $1 million playing Powerball no one could see how happy she was.

“I was at Safeway and when I realized I won $1 million, my husband and the clerk couldn’t see how happy I was because I had a mask on!” she said. “I was very happy, in fact, I didn’t believe it.”

Not only did Arnold use the self-serve Lottery ticket scanner, she also had the clerk scan it, and she checked the numbers again at home.

Peter & Tammy Van Winkle / $1,000,000

Lincoln, NE – Peter and Tammy Van Winkle of Grand Island won $1 million playing Powerball from the Nebraska Lottery.

Van Winkle purchased his winning ticket at Fast Mart at 6835 North 27th Street in Lincoln. The ticket contained a single quick pick play that matched five out of five winning numbers (05, 21, 36, 61, 62) but not the winning Powerball number (18) from the July 25 drawing.

Thomas Cook & Joseph Feeney / $22 Million

MADISON, Wis. (July 23, 2020) – Friends Thomas Cook and Joseph Feeney shook hands in 1992, swearing if either one won the Powerball jackpot, they would split the winnings…no matter who bought the ticket. Tom, of Elk Mound, and Joe, of Menomonie, made good on that handshake when Tom realized a Powerball ticket he bought at Synergy Coop Exit 45 on 2100 County Rd. B in Menomonie for the June 10 drawing was the $22 Million jackpot winner.

Anonymous / $1,000,000

Dover, Del. – A 48-year-old Millsboro woman has won a $1,000,000 prize, before taxes, by matching the 5 white balls in the May 16th POWERBALL® drawing. The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, purchased the winning Quick Pick ticket at Royal Farms #123 – Oak Orchard in Millsboro.

Shanika Miller / $2,000,000

RALEIGH – Special numbers made up of birthdays and ages proved the right combination that unlocked a $2 million Powerball win for Shanika Miller of Durham.

“I keep my same numbers,” said Miller. “I never switch them up.”

Joe B. / $2,000,000

Congratulations to “Joe B” from Pueblo! Back on March 25, he won two $1 million Powerball prizes and he finally came in to claim them today.

Joe likes to play one play of his own numbers, and a couple more plays with Quick Picks. He bought a few Powerball plays in the morning at 7-Eleven on 926 Lake Ave, then stopped and bought a few more plays in the evening at Loaf N’ Jug on 2050 Lake Ave. Can you believe what amazing luck!

$1 million Powerball lottery ticket sold at Ypsilanti gas station

‘This the lucky spot,’ employee says

YPSILANTI, Mich. – There is currently $1.3 billion up for grabs this week with the Mega Millions and Powerball lottery drawings.

Friday’s Mega Millions drawing is worth $750 million and Saturday’s Powerball is worth $640 million.

Additionally, some Metro Detroit stores have already sold some money-winning tickets.

Three lucky Michigan residents won $1 million Wednesday night. The winning numbers were 4, 19, 23, 25, 49, Powerball 14.

One of the tickets was sold at a Shell gas station, located on Joe Hall Drive in Ypsilanti.

“Just found out about it about 6:20 this morning,” said Ahmad Moukalled. “My lottery rep, Larry, he called me and told me we sold a million dollar winner.”

The Ypsilanti gas station was abuzz Thursday after Wednesday’s lottery winner. It’s not the first time someone has won big and residents are now believing the store might be lucky.

“This is actually our second jackpot. We sold a Lucky for Life before which is $25,000 for life per year,” Moukalled said. “I’m very excited. I’m happy for the person that won. Hopefully it’s a customer, local guy from the community.”

Store employees aren’t sure who sold the winning ticket or if it was purchased through the machine. Either way, they hope the store owners get a piece of the prize winnings. They encourage others to try their luck here as well.

“People will know this is the lucky spot,” Moukalled said. “This is the place to buy your winning ticket.”
