Recent Powerball Winners and Losers!
More information is coming out regarding the lucky Powerball winners from the Wednesday, September 26 drawing. The $202,100,000 Iowa Powerball winner isn't the only one that will be coming into some big money soon.
A $2,000,000 New York Powerball winner will be cashing in his or her check soon. The winning Powerball ticket was purchased at 7-ELEVEN Store #35202, located at 4931 Lakeshore Road, Hamburg, NY. The standard amount for this prize is $1,000,000, but the New York lottery winner spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option for the September 26 drawing and is now worth $2,000,000. So far no one has claimed this prize, but the winner is no doubt thankful he bought a Power Play ticket!
A $1,000,000 Pennsylvania Powerball winner purchased their winning ticket at Byers Main Street Market, 264 W. Main St., in Uniontown, southeast of Pittsburgh, PA. If you believe you're the winner, sign your ticket immediately and claim your ticket ASAP. Everyone in Pittsburgh is wondering who you are!
And finally, a $1,000,000 winning Powerball ticket just expired on Thursday, September 27, 2012, with no one to claim it. How could someone just forget about $1,000,000? And that's exactly what happened to one $1,000,000 Virginia Powerball winner. According to the Daily Press, someone matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the Powerball number for a ticket purchased way back in March at the Food Lion on Pleasant Valley Road in Virginia Beach, VA. The five winning numbers were 5, 14, 36, 54, and 58.
It's too late now and no use crying over it, but far too many people throw their tickets in a kitchen drawer, or in the back seat of their car. The tickets get forgotten, or thrown away by mistake. Whatever happened to the Virginia lottery ticket this will will forever remain a mystery. Don't let this happen to you!
