Wow!! Someone in Henderson, Kentucky, is the sole WINNER of a very large
The Powerball, a multi-state lottery game, is played in the District of
Columbia (Washington, D.C.) and seventeen other states. In order to win
the jackpot, which stands at 58 MILLION DOLLARS, a person has to
purchase a ticket for a dollar and hold the ticket with all five of the
winning numbers -- and the "powerball" (kinda like a "wildcard") which
combined with the other numbers, provides a dollar payoff.
The winner just happens to have purchased the ticket down the street from
where we get our gasoline here in town. The entire town is wondering which
of their neighbors and friends have won the large amount of money.....
The store gets a percentage (I believe it's one or two percent) of the total
jackpot amount as a "prize" for issuing the ticket. The store is aware of
the fact that a winning ticket was purchased due to the coding of the
tickets with the place of purchase. This also helps out to prevent fraud.
Good luck, whomever is out there...and please don't forget us in youth
programs in this community and others when you decide on how you're going to
spend this large amount of money!!!
