$121.000.000 Powerball jackpot won in Delaware

Powerball changed many lives in 2016, and the newest addition to the group of people who were fortunate enough to snatch the grand prize in this game is one resident of Delaware. This lucky player matched all the winning numbers in the last night’s Powerball draw, ending up $121.000.000 richer in the process. After this amazing victory, the jackpot has been reset to $40.000.000, which is still enough money to make somebody’s dreams come true – play now and it could be you!

The numbers that transformed one player from Delaware into Powerball’s latest millionaire on December 17th were 1, 8, 16, 40 and 48 plus the Power Ball number 10. Saturday proved to be a fruitful night for over 675.000 participants who managed to scoop cash rewards of smaller value, totalling to over $6.700.000 in non-jackpot prizes. The luckiest of the bunch were two players from Californian and New York who became $1.000.000 richer after matching the five main numbers.

This is only the fourth Powerball jackpot won in Delaware. Since the law in this state allows all lottery winners to remain anonymous, the previous Powerball jackpot winners decided to use this option after collecting their windfalls. The largest Powerball prize won in Delaware was collected by a group of 33 employees who work for a printing company in Seaford – they scooped $214.000.000 all the way back in October 2004, and said they plan to use the money to pay for college tuitions and other future family expenses.
