There’s no better time to hit a jackpot than a midst of holiday season, and that’s exactly what one Powerball aficionado did this Wednesday night. A fortunate lotto player from New York matched all the winning numbers to scoop a life-changing windfall worth $298.300.000. This incredible prize may be off the table, but you can still win $750.000.000 by playing Powerball Boost only available at Multilotto.
Winning numbers that led to this incredible victory on December 26th were 5, 25, 38, 52 and 67 with the Power Ball 24. One lucky player from New York was the only one to match them all, but several participants around the US won impressive prizes of smaller value this Boxing Day.
Three lucky punters collected $1.000.000 after correctly guessing the five main numbers, but missing the Power Ball. They are residents of Florida, Illinois and Wisconsin. Powerball draw on Wednesday night produced a total of around 842.000 winners who scooped over $9.166.000 in non-jackpot prizes.
This amazing victory on Wednesday night comes almost two months after another New York resident claimed a $343.800.000 Powerball windfall. Robert Bailey was one of two players who matched all the winning numbers in the draw on October 27th, when this game offered the third largest jackpot in its history.
Mr. Bailey won this gigantic prize thanks to unpleasant weather conditions – it was raining outside, and he decided to protect himself by going to a local deli. That’s where he bought the golden ticket worth $343.800.000, which contained the numbers a family member gave him 25 years ago. Second share of the prize was collected by Iowa resident Lerynne West, who used the money to establish Callum Foundation and help people in need.
