Ever since the lottery business has boomed in the entire world, the country to take the lead in the lottery business is the United States. Since the 20th Century, the country has produced several major lottery games.
However, the major lottery games that the United States has produced are the perfect duo; Mega Millions and the US Powerball. Initially, it was just the US Powerball that was launched back in 1992 and it reigned over the entire lottery industry.
Whether there were local games or international, the US Powerball had the lead and it continued with its streak for several years until 1996. That was the time when the Mega Millions made its debut with the name “The Big Game”, which was later changed to what it is today.
This is when the US Powerball Lottery found its rival and since then, both games have been competing with each other on a very large scale. Since the inception of these two lottery games, many people from the United States of America have become millionaires.
Within three decades time, both games have made several millionaires and have even given out prizes worth over a billion in a single jackpot prize. These are the prizes that other lottery games can only imagine or dream of offering to their players.
Today’s announcements are also about two players that have become millionaires playing the US Powerball and Mega Millions game.
At first, it is the US Powerball Lottery with the winning announcement of Teal Kaempffer who is a 64-year-old resident from Miami, Florida. Kaempffer had participated in the October 4 lottery draw for the US Powerball where he successfully won prize money worth $1,000,000.
Out of the 5 primary numbers and 1 Powerball, the player only managed to match the 5 primary numbers, thus, taking home a prize worth $1,000,000.
Teal Kaempffer had purchased his winning ticket from Fresco Y Mas Liquor. The particular store can be found at 12095 Southwest, which is on the 152nd Street, Miami. The store is set to receive $10,000 as a bonus commission for selling the million-dollar prize-winning ticket.
