$2 million Powerball win
Morris Cummings from Michigan was already in the party spirit while on the way to buy a present for his girlfriend’s cousin.
While purchasing the 21st birthday present he decided to buy a Powerball lottery ticket as well.
It’s a good thing he was in such a positive mood and bought the lottery ticket, as the lucky Powerball ticket matched all the main lottery numbers drawn for the January 12 draw and it won him $2m.
Had his ticket matched the bonus number too, he would have won a whopping $96 million. It didn’t though, but neither did anyone else who bought Powerball lottery tickets for that particular draw and the prize rolled over once again.
He bought his winning ticket was purchased from Randy’s Food Center in Flint, Michigan.
It was only when the party was over and the couple were on their way home, that Morris remembered that he had bought a Powerball ticket. Thanks to lottery websites and convenient apps, he double-checked the winning Powerball lottery numbers on his phone.
He immediately thought he was a little tipsy when he saw quite a few of the winning lottery numbers match those on his ticket. Slowly he registered that he had, in fact, won the second prize-tier, making him an instant millionaire.
“At first, I thought maybe I was seeing things a bit fuzzy because I’d had a few drinks, so I asked my girlfriend to check the ticket,” said the lucky Powerball winner.
She did and confirmed that he had in fact matched all five winning Powerball lottery numbers. “The party at the bar got better from there,” she joked.
The couple told lottery officials that they plan to use some of their Powerball winnings to go on holiday and save the rest.
“I can’t explain this feeling at all. It’s been so exciting and we’re both thrilled to have this money in the bank,” said Morris.

"It's an incredible birthday present. I still can’t believe it. Everything feels unreal."
Margo, a retiree was out shopping and just as she left the store she remembered that she hadn’t bought a Powerball ticket.
"I'm just out of my parking lot when I realized I did not buy a Powerball ticket. I did not want to go back but thought my birthday was coming, so what the hell? This will be a birthday present to myself '. "
Not feeling like going all the way back into the store, she also thought to herself that her birthday was coming up and that winning the Powerball would be an amazing birthday present. So she went back and purchased one and also activated the Power Play on her lottery ticket.
The morning after the draw, her husband double-checked the winning Powerball lottery numbers and told her she had matched all five main lottery numbers.
