The US Powerball is glad to announce a recent winning claimed by Raymond Carey from Seekonk. The officials have expressed their joy while giving away the prize money to Carey. They have also wished him all the luck in the world and more luck for his upcoming lottery plays.
The lottery officials are really glad that the player revealed to them that he has no intentions of not playing the US Powerball in the future. The player stated that he was thinking the quite opposite of that and he will continue playing games, so he can win more.
The player has reported that he saw that his dad was always involved with the US Powerball lottery game. He thinks that he has become like his dad when it comes to playing the US Powerball and he will carry his father’s legacy forward.
The player stated that he did not think that he would be winning anything in the particular, and he had all the reasons to back his assumption. He stated that he always plays with manually selected numbers and always felt lucky with them.
On the other hand, he does not believe that machines or computers have anything to do with luck or fortune. Therefore, he never went for the Quick Pick option, letting the computing power pick random numbers for him.
To his utmost shock, things turned out to be exactly the opposite of what the player had imagined or had presumed it to be. The player ended up matching the first 5 primary numbers for the US Powerball game. It resulted in the player winning prize money worth $1,000,000.
The player had participated in the Monday, October 4 draw, powered by the US Powerball. The player stated that although he is extremely excited about the win, he regrets not doing one thing. He stated that as he was forced to go with the Quick Pick option, therefore, it was for the first time he did not select Power Play.
Raymond Carey stated that he didn’t think that the ticket would be materializing into any prize money. Therefore, he broke his regular practice by not adding the Power Play option to the ticket. If he had done it like he commonly does, he could have won $2,000,000.
The player confirmed that he had purchased his $1,000,000 prize winner from the Quality Gas & Mart. The particular store is located at 430 Taunton Avenue, Seekonk. The store is also going to get compensated for its contribution in the winning, which is going to be a $10,000 bonus commission.
After winning the game, Carey reportedly visited the Dorchester headquarters for the US Powerball on Tuesday, October 5 to claim his prize money.
