The US Powerball Lottery team is back with two major announcements. In this report, the officials will be covering two major announcements. The first news is about a winner that is yet to make his or her appearance to claim the prize. The second news is about the latest update around the lottery jackpot prize rollover.
From one angle, the announcements are somewhat bad news but from another, they are great. In terms of the first announcement, the officials are talking about a ticket that has successfully won prize money worth $150,000 playing the US Powerball draw.
According to the US Powerball Lottery officials, the first announcement revolves around a player from Pennsylvania. The officials have revealed that a lucky ticket sold in the Delaware County of the state of Pennsylvania has won prize money worth $150,000.
The officials are excited that the ticket has successfully tripled its prize money from the initial prize money of $50,000. The officials have announced that the ticket had been purchased for the Wednesday, September 29 draw and brought in a huge fortune for the particular player.
In particular, the numbers 32-17-11-7-2 & 11 (Powerball) were drawn for the jackpot prize. The particular ticket from Delaware County matched the four primary numbers plus the bonus ball. According to the reward structure, the player won a $50,000 prize, but things turned interesting when it was discovered that the ticket had a Power Play option added.
The Power Play option costs an extra dollar, adding a multiplier on the ticket. If the multiplier on the ticket matches the multiplier in the draw, then the prize money gets multiplied with the particular figure. The multiplier that the officials drew from the September 29, 2021 drawing was 3X, which tripled the price, making it $150,000.
The officials have revealed that it was ShopRite of Brookhaven that sold the lucky ticket. The store can be located at 5005 Edgmont Avenue, Brookhaven, and is set to receive $500 as a bonus commission.
The second announcement is surrounding the jackpot prize from the same draw. If the ticket were to match all five primary numbers plus the bonus ball, it could have won over half a billion. Unfortunately, no player emerged as the winner of the jackpot prize money.
After the sad side of the jackpot prize, the good news is that the jackpot prize has rolled over yet again. Now, the jackpot prize money for the US Powerball Lottery draw is all the way up to $620 million. This has made the game for the US Powerball Lottery players even more interesting. It is expected that the participation level in the lottery draw would increase, which is to be held on Saturday, October 2, 2021.
