Powerball Lottery Winners 9/28/2013
Although there were no jackpot winners last night, there was one (1) Match 5 + 0 winner that purchased a lucky ticket from the California Lottery. According to California Lottery officials, the winner matched five out of six white Powerball numbers, missing only the red Powerball for $1,000,000. Had the winner spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option, his or her prize may have been doubled to $2,000,000 instead. Can you imagine missing an extra $1,000,000 in your check because you didn't buy a Power Play ticket? Also, missing just one number kept this California Powerball winner from winning the entire $60,000,000 jackpot.
There were also twenty-six (26) Match 4 + 1 winners. The standard amount for a third-tier prize is normally $10,000. Three (3) of those Powerball winners also purchased Power Play tickets, so they'll see their prize amounts instantly increased to $40,000. You can bet the rest of the winners will be buying Power Play tickets from now on!
All together, there were 548,554 Powerball winning tickets sold for prizes totaling $4,659,572. Are you one of the lucky September 28 Powerball winners? If so, sign the back of your ticket immediately and cash it in as soon as you can, otherwise the ticket will expire and you'll miss out on your new found fortune!
