Powerball Lottery Winners 4/3/2013
While no one won the Powerball jackpot, there were plenty of lottery winners including one (1) $2,000,000 Power Play winner, and five (5) $1,000,000 winners. According to lottery officials, one (1) Connecticut Powerball winner spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option which automatically doubled their prize winnings from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000!
Additionally, the Connecticut Lottery, Florida Lottery, Michigan Lottery, Nebraska Lottery, and New York Lottery commissions each sold one (1) $1,000,000 winning ticket. Each lottery winner matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the Powerball number for the April 3 drawing.
There were also forty-six (46) third-tier winners for $10,000 each. Twelve (12) of those Powerball winners spent an extra dollar and purchased Power Play tickets which rewarded them big time by increasing their prize winnings to $40,000 each. The remaining thirty-four (34) Powerball winners will receive only the standard amount of $10,000. You can bet they'll be buying Power Play tickets from now on!
A total of 443,089 Powerball winners will be cashing in their winning tickets for prizes ranging from $4 to $2,000,000. Are you one of the lucky April 3 lottery winners? What will you spend your prize winnings on? Will you pay off some bills, or plan a summer vacation?
