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.

He actually found out that he had won from his family.

"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."

Osage Man Claims $2 Million Powerball® Prize
A northern Iowa man's lottery prediction has come true.

"I actually told everybody, 'I'm going to win, I'm going to hit it,'" Duane Hanson of Osage said with a grin as he claimed a $2 million Powerball prize on Thursday. And how long has he been making that prediction?

"A long time," he said with a laugh.

Hanson, 58, who works as a conductor for the Cedar River Railroad in Waterloo, bought a ticket that came close to winning Wednesday night's $80 million jackpot, matching the first five numbers but missing the Powerball. But Hanson also added the Power Play option to his ticket, which multiplied his initial $1 million prize to $2 million.

Hanson bought his winning ticket at Casey's, 309 Main St. in Osage. His was one of two tickets nationwide to win a $2 million prize in Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Casey's will receive a $2,000 bonus from the lottery for the $2 million-winning ticket being sold at its Osage store.

Hanson, who said he plans to retire in 2015, and his lottery winnings will greatly help with his retirement investments.

"I've actually been worried about my 401K," he said. "Now I'm not worried about that so much. I've been talking about when I retire, maybe buying an acreage. Maybe I can do that a little sooner now."

Hanson said he has played the same set of numbers in Powerball for years, just a random set of numbers that he chose one day and decided to keep playing. He's been on vacation this week, so it was about 9 a.m. Thursday when he called the lottery's winning numbers line to check his ticket from Wednesday's drawing. After realizing he'd matched five numbers, he went to the lottery website to double-check what he'd won. Still uneasy, he called his daughter, Samantha, who lives with him in Osage, and the two of them went to the Casey's store where he'd bought his ticket and used the lottery's self-checker there to scan the ticket. The machine's display confirmed that he'd won $2 million.

"I couldn't believe it," Samantha Hanson said. "I'm happy for him."

The two decided to go to the lottery right away so Duane could claim his prize.
   
 
"Illinois Has Always Been Lucky For Me!" Missouri Resident Wins $1million Illinois Lottery Prize
"Illinois has always been lucky for me!" Ron Bryant said when he presented his winning Powerball ticket at the Illinois Lottery Prize Center in Fairview Heights. The Florissant, Missouri resident won $1million when the numbers on his $2 Quick Pick ticket matched the first five numbers – 12 – 26 - 44 - 46 - 47 - (29) - in the Saturday August 2 drawing.

Bryant has lived in the St. Louis area all his life. In May he retired after working for 25 years at the Chrysler Assembly Plant in Fenton, Missouri. When that plant closed in 2009, he transferred to the Belvidere, Illinois location where he worked up until his retirement. "When I was in Belvidere, I tried an Illinois Lottery Raffle ticket and I won $1,000. I've been buying my lottery tickets in Illinois ever since."

Married with two children and six grandchildren, Bryant plans to buy a new house and travel with his wife to visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum. "We've never been to New York and we would like to visit the Memorial to pay our respects."

Bryant checked the winning Powerball numbers at the store where he bought his ticket. After discovering he had won $1million, he immediately signed the back of his ticket, then used his phone to take a picture of it and sent the photo to his wife. "At first she didn't believe me and then she was so excited!"

The winning ticket was purchased at Super One Stop, 3301 West Chain of Rocks Road in Granite City. The retailer received $10,000, 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket. Bryant will receive a check for $700,000, after required withholding.
