If Eugene Lewis had to pick the best moment of 2017, it would probably be Foo Fighters concert he went to a few weeks ago – not only because he got to see one of his favourite bands live, but also because it led him to an amazing lotto victory! During one of the stops they made between Idaho and Utah, Lewis and his wife decided to buy a Powerball ticket and ended up winning $150.000.
The fortunate couple made a purchase at the Top Stop in Malad, and missed the jackpot by one of the main numbers on December 13th. The prize for correctly guessing the four of the main numbers and the Power Ball usually amounts to $50.000, but since Mr. Lewis spent an extra buck on the Power Play option his cash reward was tripled, reaching $150.000. He collected the money two weeks later at the Idaho Lottery Commission in Boise and said it will go towards his future retirement, and possibly a country club membership.
Mr. Lewis is one of many lotto enthusiasts who tried and failed to get their hands on the Powerball jackpot in the last two months. The latest draw that failed to produce a jackpot winner took place on December 30th, when the numbers 28 , 36, 41, 51 and 58 with the Power Ball 24 were drawn. Despite the fact they didn’t transform anyone into a jackpot millionaire, number of Match 5 winners was quite impressive. Participants from Iowa, New Hampshire and New Jersey collected $1.000.000 each, while one fortunate punter from Oregon netted $2.000.000 thanks to using the Power Play option. After Saturday night’s rollover, Powerball will be offering a spectacular $440.000.000 windfall in its first draw of the new year.
