A lottery group from Atchison have come forward and claimed $1 million on the American lottery the Powerball for the draw that took place on February 22, 2017.
The lucky group, who wish to remain anonymous, matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball to win the large cash prize.
"The night of the drawing my husband asked me to pick up a couple of Powerball tickets while I was at the store," said one of the winners. "Two other family members decided they wanted in on the drawing too, so I bought a Quick Pick ticket with seven plays instead of the two plays I had planned to buy."
It was early the following morning when the group’s leader and the one in charge of safe-guarding the tickets, double checked the winning Powerball numbers online.
"On the first three plays we didn't win anything, but on the fourth play we had matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball. I wasn't sure of the amount we had won, so I went back to the Lottery's website to find out. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. We had won $1 million! I'm so glad I purchased the seven plays instead of the two plays I had planned to buy because we wouldn't have won."
The winning numbers in the February 22 drawing are 10-13-28-52-61 Powerball 2.
The winning Powerball lotto numbers on the group’s ticket are 10-13-28-52-61 Powerball 22.
"Once I knew we had won $1 million, I signed the back of the ticket and put it in our home safe," said one of the winners. "After that, I called everyone in our group and told them what we had won. Everyone is so excited about winning. We're just kind-hearted, hardworking, everyday people. I never thought we'd win something like this."
Luckily this particular US Powerball group consists of only four members, which means they will each receive a sizeable cut of the lucky lotto win.
They told lottery officials that they have already decided how they plan to spend their winnings, ranging from paying off student loans, fulfilling a wish list, buying a Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) and investing for the future.
