The grass in definitely greener for a Sykesville couple who recently went to buy another Powerball lotto ticket, as they found out after scanning a previous Powerball ticket that it was worth a hefty $50,000 for matching four numbers and the Power Ball in the April 2 draw.
The lucky Powerball winners have always had dreams of green (the landscaping kind), so this lotto win will undoubtedly enable them to make the most of the green fingers and with a bit of luck grow their amazing lotto prize even further.
The 49-year-old Powerball winner works for a local financial institution, and often has to deal with large sums of money. It was just after she scanned her Powerball lottery ticket and realised that the ticket was worth $50,000 that she immediately contacted her husband with the good news.
It was during a trip to the hairdresser and the Martins Food Market in Eldersburg that the lucky winner purchased the winning Powerball ticket.
The jackpot however still remains untouched and is currently $227 million for tonight’s, Wed 20 April draw.
Her husband said, “She’s always so lucky and has won before with Lottery and the casinos, so when she called me and said the phrase ‘we need to talk,’ I knew something lucky had happened.”
He carried on to say that his wife is not prone to extravagance but he is encouraging her to spoil herself with the Powerball win. One of the first things that they have spent some of the winnings on, was a set of arm rests and mulching blades for their John Deere mower.
How to Play Powerball:
To play the Powerball lottery, lottery players choose five numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26. In order to win the Powerball jackpot, players must match all five main numbers and the red Power ball.
Bigger Powerball jackpots have become more common since the rules were changed in October 2015, with players now needing to pick 5 main numbers from a pool that increased from 59 to 69, while the single Powerball still needs to be picked from 11 possible ones. It’s due to these number format changes that has led to more players winning smaller prizes.
The biggest ever US Powerball jackpot took place on the 13th January 2016 with a mammoth 1.5 billion prize up for grabs.
Never in the history of lotteries had online lottery players seen such a huge lotto jackpot. Lottery fans stood in long queues in the USA to purchase tickets into the draw.
Three Powerball ticket holders from California, Florida and Tennessee scooped the record-breaking $1.5 billion jackpot.
The second largest ever Powerball jackpot that was won, was $590.5 million back in May 2013. It was won by one ticket holder. The lucky winner was an 84-year-old widow, Gloria C. MacKenzie, from Florida. Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday night, with the jackpot rising each time there is no jackpot winner.
