Powerball was on a roll since September, but the tremendous $203 million was won at last in November 8th drawing. The winning ticket holder matched the numbers 9-19-33-38-54 with Power Ball number 15 and will have the choice of annuity payments for the entire prize amount of $203 million, or the cash option in the amount of $126.7 million before tax withholding. The winner from Missouri, whose name is still unknown to lottery officials, has 180 day to come forward and claim the winnings.
Grand prize winner isn’t the only person who walked away a millionaire after the November 8th draw. There were also six second prize winning tickets that matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball. The six lucky tickets were purchased in Florida (2), North Carolina (1), New York (1), Oregon (1) and Pennsylvania (1) and their owners are to claim $1 million prizes.
The previous Powerball jackpot winner, nail salon worker Vinh Nguyen from San Mateo won slightly larger $228.4 million prize in September 24th draw. The luckiest Powerball player to date was Gloria MacKenzie of Zephyrhills who took home historic $590.5 million prize after matching all five winning numbers and a Powerball back in May 2013.
