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.

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!

Winning $731.1 million Powerball ticket sold in Maryland

Wednesday’s winning $731.1 million Powerball jackpot ticket — the fourth-largest jackpot in that lottery’s history — was sold in Maryland, according to lottery officials.

A single ticket matched all six numbers in the drawing: 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, plus Powerball 22, and Power Play multiplier 3X.

The winner will have the choice between an estimated annuity of $731.1 million, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump-sum payment of $546.8 million — before taxes, of course.

The winning ticket for Wednesday’s jackpot was sold at Coney Market in the small town of Lonaconing. in Allegany County, located in northwestern Maryland.

Coney Market will receive a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

“We’re really happy for somebody,” Richard Ravenscroft, the store’s owner, told The Associated Press by phone. “We don’t know who it is yet.”

Lonaconing, a former mining town, is home to about 300 families and well off the beaten track, with a poverty rate of more than 22%, well above the national average.

Coney Market, named for what locals call their town, is in a standalone building more than a century old, along Maryland’s Route 36. It’s a place where people can eat hamburgers and submarine sandwiches in a small seating area that draws its share of regulars.

“I can’t wait to congratulate the person. I just hope whoever has won it uses it wisely and that other people benefit from it,” Ravenscroft said.

Ravenscroft, for his part, wants to expand the store’s kitchen and add menu items such as mashed potatoes and gravy. Perhaps the bonus can help with that.

AC&T #130, in Hagerstown, sold a Powerball ticket with Power Play worth $2 million for the same drawing.

The Hagerstown store will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the second-tier winning ticket,

“Congratulations to our winners in the Powerball drawing,” Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director Gordon Medenica said in a release. “This is a truly exciting day for Maryland as we wait to see who will step forward to claim the jackpot and the $2 million prize.”

The winner or winners of the $731.1 million jackpot may never be known. Maryland is one of a handful of states where the Powerball winner can stay anonymous. But keeping quiet about such a huge windfall could prove difficult if the ticket was bought by a local.

Following the win, the new jackpot drops to an estimated $20 million for the next drawing Saturday.
