ONE very happy winner of a serious "Pot of Gold" had the luck of the Irish on St Patrick's Day. The very lucky person purchased a Powerball ticket in Pennsylvania. Other big winners are celebrating in California, Missouri and Texas
It you happened to be in Pennsylvania recently and purchased a Powerball ticket while you were there? Well check your ticket! Lottery officials say a SINGLE winning Powerball ticket was sold in Pennsylvania to grab the massive 455-million-dollar jackpot. It matched all six numbers in Saturday night's drawing.
The winner would net out to a 270-million dollar lump sum – and for the record, the odds of wining the jackpot were one in 292-million. So what are the winning numbers?
- Powerball 7
- Power Play 2X
Three other tickets matched all five white balls in the drawing – they were sold in California, Missouri and Texas.
And by the way? If you are the big winner, you’re going to have to own up publicly. According to state law, winners are named.
Don't tear up those tickets just yet. Make sure to check your numbers for possible smaller winnings.
If you’re still looking to win big bucks, there is some good news. No winning tickets were sold in Friday night's Mega Millions lottery. That jackpot now stands at an estimated $377-million…and the odds are slightly better in that drawing.
