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".
   
 
Raleigh man walks around with winning Powerball ticket for six days and doesn't know it
For six days Errol Buchanan of Raleigh walked around with a Powerball ticket worth $100,000 in his wallet and didn’t even know it.

"That's where I always keep my tickets," Buchanan said. "I can't believe it was that much."

He decided to check the ticket Monday night.

"The clerk scanned it and pulled me aside," Buchanan said. "He told me to, 'Sign the ticket and go straight home.'"

That's when he knew he won $100,000 in Wednesday's drawing.

He claimed his prize Tuesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, he received $69,250. He plans to use the money to help his mom and save for retirement.

He bought the $3 Power Play ticket at the Circle K on Poole Road in Raleigh. The numbers matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000. The prize doubled when the 2X multiplier was drawn for Power Play tickets.

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.

"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.

Overland Student Wins $1 Million on Powerball
An amusement with the historic $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot earlier this year has resulted in an Overland man becoming the newest Missouri Lottery millionaire.

"I started playing (the Lottery) with the $1 billion Powerball," said Chaz Williams, while claiming his $1 million prize on Oct. 28. "Ever since then, I've bought a Powerball ticket every now and then when the mood strikes."

Williams, 21, purchased his Powerball ticket from Quick Mart, 9725 Lackland Road in St. Louis, for the Oct. 26 drawing. He used Quick Pick to correctly match all five white-ball numbers drawn to win his $1 million prize. If Williams had matched the Powerball, he would have won the jackpot, which was $164 million at the time of the drawing.

"I checked my numbers online. I thought I had won the jackpot when I saw that I had matched so many numbers," said Williams. "I'll take what I got, though."

A graphic design student with an upcoming graduation in 2018, Williams plans to use his $1 million prize to pay the rest of his tuition.
   
 
Watertown Woman Claims $100,000 Powerball Prize
Debra Amy of Watertown, SD on Oct. 17, 2016 claimed her $100,000 Powerball prize from the Oct. 8, 2016 drawing at the Sioux Falls Lottery office.

Amy matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball to win the game's third prize but because she purchased the Power Play option for an additional dollar and the Power Play was 2, her prize was doubled to $100,000.

Her winning ticket was purchased at Prairie Stop on 9th Avenue SW in Watertown. The store will receive a $2,000 bonus for the sale.

Amy says she plans to use her winnings to finish remodeling work at her home and to help family members.
   
 
Small Wins Lead to $50,000 Powerball Prize
Reinvesting the $4 she won on previous tickets led an O'Fallon woman straight to a Missouri Lottery office to claim a Powerball prize. Lucindy Bass won $50,000 - for matching four out of five white ball numbers, plus the Powerball, in the Oct. 22 drawing - after using earlier winnings to buy the lucky ticket.

"I took in a stack of tickets to check and won $4, so I said, 'Just give me two Powerball tickets instead,'" she explained.

Bass would learn in a matter of hours that her decision had paid off, quite literally.

"I got home at about 10:30, and I'm like a little kid and can't wait until the next day when I know I bought tickets for that night," she said of her quick look-up of the night's winning numbers. "So I checked the numbers on my phone and saw that the Powerball numbers matched, then I read all the other numbers off out loud… and I went back and forth. By the fourth number, I said, 'Wait a minute,' and I rubbed my eyes and started all over again."

She finally convinced herself she was seeing the numbers correctly, but it took a screen shot of the winning numbers and a photo of the ticket to convince her daughter that the late-night phone call she received was for real.

"It still feels weird," Bass went on, citing that if the last remaining number on her ticket had been a 1 instead of 17, she would have won the whole jackpot.

She was more than happy with her outcome, though, as she made plans to put the money in the bank and possibly pay a visit to a Florida beach.
   
 
Coralville Man Claims $1 Million Powerball Prize
A Coralville man admits he's always fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery - and now he knows. Jeff Tomlinson Jr. claimed a $1 million Powerball prize on Friday.

"I didn't really consider it a possibility, it was more of a fantasy of what would I do if I won," Tomlinson said as he claimed his prize at lottery headquarters in Clive. "But I want to make sure that my family is well taken care of - now, in the future. Even my daughter, I want to make sure that she's good for college and the future."

Tomlinson, 32, an electronics technician at Rockwell Collins in Coralville who also attends Kirkwood Community College while working towards an engineering degree, said he regularly stops at Kum & Go in North Liberty where he bought his winning ticket because it is near where he lives and takes his 3-year-old daughter to daycare.

He found out he'd won big when he stopped at the store Friday morning and they told him to check his tickets because someone had bought a ticket there that won a $1 million prize. He went out to his car and looked up the winning numbers from Wednesday's Powerball drawing on his mobile phone, then took his ticket right back into the store.

"As soon as I signed it, they scanned it," he said. "We all took pictures of my ticket with the receipt and all that. Everybody was excited. I was tearing up and shaking in the middle of the store. I just could not believe it."

Tomlinson said he decided to claim the prize right away because he didn't want to chance something happening to his winning ticket. He called work and took a vacation day and called his wife, Jolene, who was already at her job.

"I think she's still in shock about the whole thing," he said. "She asked me repeatedly, 'Are you kidding?'"

Tomlinson bought his winning ticket at Kum & Go, 610 N. Kansas Ave. in North Liberty. He came within one number of having at least a share of Wednesday's $80 million jackpot. His ticket matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball to win a $1 million prize. It was the only ticket in the country that won a $1 million prize Wednesday.
   
 
MN Lottery group wins $50,000 Powerball prize
A group of six co-workers from Liberty Carton in Golden Valley now refer to themselves as the Lucky 6 after winning $50,000 in the Sept. 21 Powerball drawing.

The group has been pooling their money together for Powerball and Mega Millions tickets for six years-each contributing $6 per week. John Dorff said they initially started the Lottery pool in hopes to "win enough to get out of work someday." The group is certainly off to a good start after one of their tickets matched the first four numbers plus the Powerball number to win $50,000.

"It's a nice chunk of change," said Dorff. The Lucky 6 members shared the prize equally and each received a check for approximately $8,333 (before the required tax withholdings). From home projects to savings to a new pair of diamond studs, each of the Lucky 6 has a different plan for their windfall.

"We still can't believe that we won this," said Tom Kokx. "We were all in shock," added Pauline LaChapelle.

The members of Lucky 6 are: Jeffrey Denny of Savage, John Dorff of Champlin, Tom Kokx of Maple Grove, Pauline LaChapelle of Plymouth and Margaret Parker of St. Louis Park and Sang Tran of Maple Grove.

Holiday Stationstores Inc., located at 3020 Fernbrook Lane N. in Plymouth, sold the $50,000 winning ticket.

Wilmington parking lot attendant wins $1 million Powerball prize
Terry Wallington of Wilmington said he was on the job working as a parking lot attendant Thursday morning when he checked his Powerball ticket for Wednesday's drawing and found out he had won $1 million.

Wallington said when he saw that he had matched five of the six Powerball numbers in the drawing, he had to check the results on his phone four or five times. He said he called his brother and sister, and then started crying "tears of joy."

"I've never seen anything like that," said Wallington, pointing to the zeroes adding up to $1,000,000 on the "Big Check" he was about to get at lottery headquarters. "Nothing like that, except on TV."

He bought the Quick Pick ticket, which beat odds of 1 in 11.7 million, at the BP Gas Center #12 on Market Street. After federal and state tax withholdings, he received $692,500.

Wallington said he planned to help his family, his brother and sister, and donate to a good cause. He said he might trade up from his 1998 Ford Crown Victoria to a used Cadillac. Otherwise, he said, he had no big plans.

"I'm not into trips and I am not into splurging," Wallington said. "I really don't need anything. I'm content."
   
 
New Hampshire Powerball Winner Claims Prize; Announces $100,000 Donation to Charity
The winner of a $487 million New Hampshire Powerball ticket claimed the prize and will donate an initial $100,000 to a series of New Hampshire nonprofit organizations - matching the $100,000 donation by Hannaford Supermarkets last month. The winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, claimed the $487 million prize through the Robin Egg 2016 Nominee Trust facilitated by the law firm of Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. The prize money was distributed to the winner's account last week and William Shaheen of Shaheen & Gordon will serve as trustee. Shaheen made the donation announcement during a press conference today at New Hampshire Lottery Headquarters in Concord with nonprofit organizations in attendance.

While the family has opted to maintain its anonymity, they have indicated they are committed to supporting philanthropic causes in New Hampshire, and anticipate future contributions to New Hampshire nonprofits.

The winning Powerball ticket was sold at Hannaford Supermarket in Raymond for the July 30 drawing.

The winner had two options, taking a lump-sum cash option of approximately $341.7 million or the option of an annuity payment over 30 years. The winner opted for the one-time cash option, which netted the winner $256.3 million, after federal taxes were withheld.

"This winning ticket has received an extraordinary amount of interest. While we certainly wish we could have met our Powerball winners in person, we appreciate and respect that they have chosen to try to live as normal a life as possible," said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission. "This is a life-altering amount of money and we are extremely happy to learn about the winners' intention to make a major philanthropic impact with their winnings. This has been an incredibly exciting time for the New Hampshire Lottery and all of our players here in New Hampshire."
