POWERBALL JACKPOT WINNERS CLAIM $121.6 MILLION PRIZE IN HISTORIC DRAWING
One lucky couple from Pennsylvania will start 2017 with a $121.6 million prize after matching all five white balls plus the red POWERBALL in the December 17, 2016, drawing. The man and woman, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased the winning ticket at Selbyville Goose Creek, a subsidiary of Cato Gas & Goose Creek Food Stores, located at 38452 DuPont Blvd. in Selbyville, Delaware.

The man, who has been playing the Delaware Lottery since its inception in 1975, normally plays POWERBALL and MEGA MILLIONS when the jackpots get large. For years, he has played the same numbers. He originally bought a POWERBALL Quick Pick ticket a long time ago and liked those numbers, so he stuck with them ever since. It finally paid off.

"I figured it only takes one ticket to win," said the man. "I went to the machine and scanned my ticket, and all these numbers came up. I have never seen that many zeroes in my life! Once reality set in, my first reaction was to cry. I walked out of the store in tears and returned to my wife who was waiting for me in the car."

"He came to the car and had tears on his face," said the woman. "I didn't know what to think at first, but then he said anxiously, 'We are millionaires!' I was so confused I didn't believe him and thought he was joking, so I made him double check the numbers on his phone, and we got the same results."

The winners selected the $72.1 million cash option and told Lottery officials they already have big plans for their prize money. "This is just such a great experience, and we don't want to spend the money foolishly," said the woman. "I have strong feelings toward education and would want to make donations to schools or other charities in the future. We've also had our eyes on an RV. Since we travel a lot, it would be perfect for our family."

In addition, the man told Lottery officials it has always been a dream of his to own a hot rod, and he may get one down the road.

"Winning is not going to change me," said the woman. "I told him I don't want us to be different because of the money. We are very blessed to win."

The winners claimed their prize (less 25 percent after federal tax) at Delaware Lottery Headquarters in Dover on Friday, January 13, 2017.
   
 
CEDAR RAPIDS MAN WAS ONE NUMBER AWAY FROM WINNING BIG POWERBALL JACKPOT
A Cedar Rapids man was just one number away from winning a big Powerball jackpot last week and ended up winning $50,000.

However, John Neuhaus said he did not know he won until his wife, Carla, had his ticket checked at a local drug store last week.

John said his wife works at the store where his winning ticket was purchased, Hy-Vee Drugstore, 1520 Sixth St. SW in Cedar Rapids, and she heard that someone who bought a ticket there had won $50,000. She checked John's ticket there Dec. 29 and sure enough, he won.

"I think the most I ever won was seven or eight dollars," Neuhaus told lottery employees Friday as he claimed his prize at the lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids.

Neuhaus matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball in the Dec. 28 drawing to win a $50,000 prize.

Neuhaus is a 66-year-old retired mechanic and said he plans to save a majority of his winnings.

Evansville grandfather wins $50,000 on Powerball
Although Charles Maas will not be doing the "fancy dance" he said he would do if he won $403 million from Powerball, he still won more than he ever has on the game in Saturday's drawing.

Charles won $50,000 after matching 4 of 5 numbers and the Powerball with a Quick Pick ticket purchased at Buehler's IGA, 12500 N. Highway 41 North in Evansville. He checked the numbers in Sunday’s paper and knew he won, but wasn’t sure how much at first.

"I knew it would be enough to cover the gas to drive up to Indianapolis," Charles said.

After checking the Hoosier Lottery website, Charles realized he'd won $50,000 - more than enough for fuel to Indianapolis to claim his prize at Hoosier Lottery headquarters. However, he still wasn't convinced.

"I'll believe it when I see it," he joked of his prize money before his claim was processed.

Charles is a regular Powerball player and occasional Hoosier Lotto player. He plans to put his prize toward college funds for his grandchildren.
   
 
"Tennessee 20" WIN INCREDIBLE $420.9 MILLION POWERBALL JACKPOT AFTER PLAYING TOGETHER FOR YEARS
A group of 20 longtime co-workers now share more than their place of work-together they won, and will split, a $420.9 Powerball jackpot from the drawing held Nov. 26, 2016. The "Tennessee 20," as they quickly dubbed themselves after the big win, joined Tennessee Education Lottery officials today to claim their winnings.

"All this time playing has been fun, but I never truly thought we would win," said Amy O'Neal, the group's spokesperson. "It's still sinking in, but we're having a blast!"

The winners, from 13 different cities in the mid-south, work together at North American Stamping, North 1 LLC, Portland, TN. They primarily handle sales and quality control at the auto parts manufacturing plant.

"What a great day for Tennessee!" said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery. "We couldn't be happier for this wonderful group of friends. The excitement from winning experiences like these is a key part of our success raising funds for education programs in Tennessee."

The lucky ticket was sold at Smokeshop, 711 Scottsville Road, Lafayette, Tenn. Owner Joyce Gregory was on-hand to receive a $25,000 selling bonus and to join Amy, a long-time loyal customer, the other winners, family members and Tennessee Lottery staff members.

Immediate plans varied-from a vacation in Italy, helping family with medical bills, sending children to college and purchasing new vehicles-but one thing was unanimous: the desire to help others.

"This group has a heart of gold," said Steve Huffman, who lives in Macon County. "They always have and they always will".
   
 
Grocery shopping Atlanta couple bag $246.8M Powerball jackpot prize
William and Heather ten Broeke were grocery shopping when Heather reminded her husband to buy a Powerball ticket for the Sept. 17 drawing.

"Aren't you going to get a ticket?" Mrs. ten Broeke, 38, asked.

"Without her reminding me to buy the ticket, we wouldn't have won," said Mr. ten Broeke, 46.

The ten Broekes arrived at Georgia Lottery headquarters Monday to claim the $246,764,131 million jackpot prize. They selected the cash option, which totaled $165,613,511 before taxes.

A few days after the drawing, they checked their ticket after seeing news reports that the winning ticket purchased in their area still hadn't been claimed.

"We were shocked," Mr. ten Broeke said. "We couldn't believe it. We checked the numbers numerous times."

The ten Broekes reside in the Brookhaven area of Atlanta. Married five years, they have one child and two dogs.

Mr. ten Broeke works as a commercial credit officer. Mrs. Ten Broeke is a cardiac device specialist.

Their immediate plans are to invest, travel, help family and donate to charity.
