Latest Powerball Winners
New Jersey Powerball winners are having quite the month. According to the New Jersey Lottery, six lottery players won $10,000 each last Saturday, October 22nd. The lottery winners all matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, and the Powerball number, for the third-tier Powerball prize. If any of these Powerball winners purchased PowerPlay tickets, their winnings would be automatically multiplied by the PowerPlay number of 4 to $40,000.
Montana Powerball winners Jim and Fran Snyder of Laurel, claimed their second-tier $200,000 Powerball prize on Monday, October 24th. Their winning lottery ticket was purchased at the Holiday Station Store on Ember Lane in Billings, Montana, for the October 19th drawing. Unfortunately for the Snyders, Jim bought a standard Powerball ticket. He didn't spend an extra dollar on the PowerPlay optionÂ—a mistake that Fran will probably not let him forget anytime soon. Had he plopped down the extra dollar on the counter that night, the Snyders would have been instant millionaires! The Montana Lottery said, Jim just shrugged his shoulders, and said, "I'm adding Power Play from now on!"
