Powerball Winners 9/15/2012
One (1) lucky Florida lottery winner will no doubt be cashing a $2,000,000 check real soon. The winning ticket matched five out of six Powerball numbers, but not the Powerball number for the September 15 drawing. Luckily, he or she thought to spend an extra dollar on the Power Play option before the drawing which automatically doubled their prize winnings from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000!
Although the Arizona, New York, Ohio and Texas Powerball winners will also be happy with their prize winnings, they'll only be receiving checks for $1,000,000 because they didn't buy Power Play tickets. You better believe they'll be spending the extra dollar from now on!
There were also twenty-two (22) Match 4 + 1 winners for the second-tier prize. The Powerball winners matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, and the Powerball number for the September 15 drawing. Three (3) winners purchased Power Play tickets and will now be receiving $40,000 instead. It really does pay to play the Power Play!
All together, there are 600,500 Powerball winners holding tickets worth between $4 and $2,000,000 for a total of $9,970,147 in prize money. Are you one of the lucky lottery winners?
