A lucky Ohio Lottery player has hit the lottery jackpot by being a single ticket winner of a $124,9 Million Powerball Lottery game. The single ticket win on 9 July 2014 is one of the largest lottery prizes this year.
The popular Powerball Lottery had rolled over several times to reach one of the largest jackpot totals of the year. This particular draw proved to be highly lucrative for a large number of players worldwide.
There were 397,508 winners in this particular draw. Over $8 Million was paid out to winning players in this draw, excluding the jackpot winner’s prize money.
There were 5 matches 5 winners of which one was a power-play winner. That essentially means that these particular players winnings are doubled.
So four winners of £1 million and a winner who paid an extra dollar converted their win into an extra million dollars.
The winning numbers for the draw are as follows: White Balls: 02, 03, 07, 23 and 51. Powerball: 26, Power Play 2.
The Powerball Lottery is now the most popular multi-state lottery game having taken over from Mega Millions due to the lottery jackpots’ sizes on offer.
Powerball starts with a minimum jackpot of $40 million and is already worth $50 Million despite being won recently.
Match 5 winners hail from a variety of states including Florida, Georgia, and New Jersey. The Power Play winning ticket was bought in North Carolina.
