Powerball Results and Winners 9/8/2012
The Arizona Powerball winner was just one number away from taking home a check for $100,000,000. The yet unclaimed winning ticket was purchased from the Arizona Lottery for the September 8 drawing. The lottery winner matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the Powerball number for $1,000,000. Had the winner purchased a Power Play ticket for an extra dollar, he or she would have had their prize winnings doubled to $2,000,000 instead. Can you imagine missing an extra million because you didn't buy a Power Play ticket?
Twenty-two (22) Match 4 + 1 winners will be cashing checks for $10,000 each, minus taxes of course! Three (3) Power Play winners were smart and spent an extra dollar for this wager, which means their prize winnings will automatically increase to $40,000 instead of the standard $10,000.
All together there were 555,278 winning Powerball tickets for last night's drawing for a total of $4,785,844 in prize money. Congratulations to all the September 8, 2012 Powerball winners! How many Powerball tickets did you buy for Saturday's game?
