Tonight could be the night to match all six winning Powerball numbers and wake up $30,000,000 richer on Sunday morning! That's what the Saturday, September 24, 2011 Powerball numbers are worth.
If someone wins the Powerball jackpot tonight, it will be the third grand prize won in the month of September. The New York Lottery says, "Hey, it could be you!" And why not? Someone has to win eventually, so it may as well be you!
Kentucky Lottery Sells $1,000,000 Powerball Ticket
How would you like to win $200,000? Anyone in their right mind would say "Sure I would!" OK then. How would you like to turn that $200,000 into $1,000,000 by spending only one dollar? "Absolutely! Who wouldn't want an extra million hanging around?" That's exactly what happened to one Powerball player who decided to fork over an extra dollar for a PowerPlay ticket.
Instead of buying a regular Powerball ticket for $1, the winner, who bought a ticket from Prime Star #7 on 980 S. Main Street in Nicholasville, Kentucky, purchased a PowerPlay ticket for $2. That stroke of luck paid off in a very big way. The winner, who is still unidentified at this time, is now a millionaireÂ—for $1 extra! It pays to play the PowerPlay!
The lucky lottery winner matched five out of six winning Powerball numbers, but not the Powerball number. The September 21st lottery numbers were 12, 47, 48, 52, 55 and the Powerball number was 13. According to LEX18.com, and the Kentucky Lottery Corporation, the Powerball winner isn't the only winner in Wednesday's drawing. The retailer will also receive $10,000 for selling the winning ticket. Everyone winsÂ—even Uncle Sam!
