PA Lottery Presents $2 Million Powerball® Check to Workplace Pool in York County
Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Sil Lutkewitte today presented a ceremonial check for $2 million to 10 members of a workplace lottery pool in York, the winners of a Powerball with Power Play® prize for the Oct. 22, 2014 drawing.

The winners work at Industrial Distribution Group, which is located just across the street from the store where the winning ticket was sold, the Sunoco A-Plus Market at 3167 N. Susquehanna Trail. The retailer hosted today's celebration event.

"I'm pleased to congratulate the 'IDG Friends', our newest Powerball winners, on their $2 million prize," Lutkewitte said. "These friends already know that playing in a pool is a great way to have fun chasing a big prize while playing responsibly."

The winning ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 29-30-40-42-50, but not the red Powerball 16, and added Power Play®, which boosted the prize to $2 million, less 25 percent federal withholding. After federal taxes, each group member will receive a $150,000 share of the prize.

The coworkers have been playing lottery games as a group for nearly 10 years, with each person contributing $2 per week and taking turns buying tickets.

Group member Stephanie first became aware of their good fortune when she checked her copies of the tickets on the morning after the drawing. Just to be certain, coworker Stacia ran across the street to scan the ticket at the store.

"We won $2 million!" Stacia yelled as she bolted back into the office, moments later.

Group members took turns holding the winning ticket so that they each could say they had held $2 million in their hands. The individuals have different plans for their winnings, which include paying off loans, making home improvements and planning for retirement.

The retailer receives a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The thrill of winning a Georgia Lottery prize came as a treat for one lucky Savannah man who stumbled upon a forgotten Powerball ticket with a huge prize. David Bramble, 42, matched the first five numbers from the July 9 Powerball drawing, winning a $1 million prize.

Georgia Lottery representatives presented Bramble with an oversized check Wednesday at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Savannah.

His lucky lottery ticket went unnoticed for three months.

"I had these tickets that were sitting in my car," said Bramble, who claimed his prize Oct. 21.

Publix Super Market #1186, 11701 Abercorn St. in Savannah, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.

He was at the grocery store checking the tickets when he realized he'd won.

"I thought that I must've won a chunk of change. I didn't know that it was that much change," Bramble said. "I lost my composure for a couple of minutes in the store."

A registered nurse, Bramble feels "awesome" over his windfall. He and his wife, Tanyka, have four children and have not yet made plans for the windfall.

Diana Forbes, a retiree from Elizabeth City, plans to use the $1 million prize she won playing Powerball to pay off her mortgage, travel and purchase new American-made cars for herself and for her son.

After state and federal taxes were withheld, Forbes received a check for $692,000. She purchased the lucky ticket at the Eagle Mart on North Road Street in Elizabeth City.

As she collected her winnings on Monday, Forbes said that she appreciates that the money she spends on the lottery goes to a good cause.

Twin Falls Store Sells Second Lucky Winning Powerball Ticket; Nevada Man Claims $2,000,000 Prize
Great opportunities at a young age have found Idaho's latest Powerball millionaire. Cody Jueden, 20, from Elko, Nevada claimed the $2 million winning Powerball ticket sold at a Twin Falls Stinker Store that is quickly gaining a reputation for being a lucky place to play the Idaho Lottery.

Jueden, a welder by trade, visited Twin Falls last weekend along with his fiancé, Brianna Benefield. Before leaving town on Sunday afternoon, Jueden stopped at the Stinker Store at 880 Shoshone Street in Twin Falls to purchase a few Powerball tickets.

"It worked out pretty good, although I still don't believe it," said Jueden when he claimed his ticket in Boise. Then, after looking at his actual check, he added, "I've never seen so many zeroes before. This is a great opportunity for us."

Jueden's winning ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball from Wednesday night's draw. His winning Powerball ticket included the PowerPlay option. PowerPlay is an additional $1 per play at the time of purchase that multiplies non-jackpot winning tickets up to $2,000,000.

With a wedding planned in Twin Falls in a year-and-a-half, Jueden says he's planning to pay off his house, his truck, and then invest wisely for his and his fiancé's future life together.

For their part in selling the winning ticket, Stinker Stores receives a bonus from the Idaho Lottery for $25,000.

POCA MAN CLAIMS $1 MILLION POWERBALL® PRIZE
West Virginia Lottery Director John Musgrave introduced Robert Carter of Poca as West Virginia's newest millionaire at a press conference in Charleston this morning.

"I have been playing the lottery a long time and the most I have ever won until now is seven dollars," Carter said. "It is an amazing feeling."

Carter purchased two easy pick tickets at the Go Mart (#83) in Poca and missed only the Powerball number on his match-5 winner. The numbers drawn for Saturday, August 2, were 12-26-44-46-47 and the Powerball number was 29. Had he spent an extra $1 for the Powerplay option – he would have won $2 million instead of $1 million.

"I actually found out while driving to visit my sister. I had gotten in one of those dark spots, where you can't get any reception and as soon as I got out of that I must have had 100 calls from my wife and daughter that we had won five numbers out of six."
