The US Powerball officials are excited to reveal that they have a new millionaire to induct to their list of millionaire winners. This time, the US Powerball officials have the player from Granite Falls, who not only won the second-division prize money but managed to double it.
According to the lottery officials, the latest millionaire they have to add is Edward Milton from Granite Falls. Edward has been a resident of Granite Falls for several years and now, he is a millionaire in the same area he was born and raised.
Edward told the lottery officials that he couldn’t have asked for more when he came to know he had won huge prize money. He was left in tears as he saw the numbers on his ticket and realized that he had become a millionaire.
The moment Edward realized he had matched the criteria for winning the second-division prize money, he knew his life wasn’t going to be the same anymore. He kept it a secret from his wife and decided to give her a surprise by bringing her to the US Powerball headquarters to claim the prize money.
Edward told the officials that he had been playing the US Powerball lottery hoping to win small prize money someday. He had been playing the US Powerball hoping that someday, he may end up winning prize money and he would manage to double or triple it.
Although Edward wasn’t able to triple his prize money, he did manage to double it and took home prize money worth $2,000,000. The latest ticket Edward had purchased for the US Powerball lottery game was for the December 6, 2021 draw.
The winning numbers for the particular draw were 59-50-38-21-03 and 06 (Powerball number). The Power Play multiplier drawn by the operators was 3X.
From the draw, Edward managed to match five primary numbers but wasn’t able to do the same with the Powerball number. This led Edward to win prize money worth $1,000,000, according to basic rules.
However, as Edward had added the Power Play option to the ticket, he ended up doubling his prize money and took home $2 million. Although the multiplier was 3X, the maximum multiplier that implies to the 2nd division prize money is 2X. This is the reason why Edward won prize money worth $2 million.
Being a plumber, Edward is determined to expand his business as he always wanted to launch his own plumbing company. With the money Edward has generated from the draw, he will be using it to launch his own business. According to Edward, this is the first time ever that fortune has given him an opportunity and he is not going to let go of it.
