Just in the nick of time, Sterling man claims $1 million Powerball prize He redeems winning ticket less than a week before the prize would have expired
For nearly six months, Aaron Monsey knew he had a million-dollar Powerball ticket in his possession, but he was in no hurry to claim it. Finally, less than a week before the $1 million was set to expire, the Sterling man redeemed his ticket and claimed his prize.

Mr. Monsey matched the first five numbers in the June 21 Powerball drawing, missing only the Powerball number. The winning numbers for that drawing were 5-6-37-41-54, and the Powerball number was 26. He discovered the next day that he'd won the game's second prize. But he took it all in stride.

"There wasn't any yelling or screaming," he said.

Mr. Monsey, who works as a carpenter, bought the winning ticket at Sterling Park Exxon (formerly Getty Mart) at 209 East Holly Avenue in Sterling. On December 15, he returned to the store to receive his check from the Virginia Lottery. The store also received a check for $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.

He used Easy Pick, letting the computer randomly select the numbers on his ticket. If he'd matched all six numbers, he would have won a jackpot estimated at $60 million. By law, winning tickets in Virginia expire 180 days after the drawing. That means this ticket would have become worthless at the close of business on Thursday, December 18.

And why did he wait so long to claim his prize? "Just because…," he replied.

Auburn Woman Steps Forward to Claim $90 Million Powerball Jackpot; Woman's First Powerball Purchase Is Washington's First Powerball Jackpot Win
Quam shared the story that on Thanksgiving Day, she took a break from the cooking, and ran to Haggen Northwest Fresh (1406 Lake Tapps Parkway E) with her husband to pick up a newspaper with the Black Friday ads and some pumpkin spice. While in the checkout aisle, she and her husband debated whether or not to buy their kids Lottery tickets to tuck in their Christmas stockings. Although they decided against the stocking stuffers, Quam did purchase two Powerball tickets – one for her and one for her husband.

"The cashier was really nice and asked if we wanted to purchase Powerball. I said, 'Sure!' I had never purchased a Powerball ticket before."

They returned home and posted the tickets on the refrigerator. On Sunday night, Quam checked the numbers and realized she won. "I yelled to my family, 'Get up here!' They all thought I was mad and angry about something. My daughter asked, 'Is this an emergency?' and I said, 'yes!'"

Despite not sleeping a wink on Sunday night, Quam still got up to work on Monday morning. After a few days to think on it, she and her husband have both made plans to retire. "It took me a few days before I realized --- I don't have to get up in the morning!"

When asked whether she had plans for the big win, Quam emphasized that family comes first. "We have student loans just like every family, house repairs, maybe we'll buy a house for one of the kids." When pressed, Quam noted that she had picked out a new car, a Subaru Forester, and that she expected to travel more.

A long-time Washington's Lottery Scratch player, this is Quam's first big win. She and her family had not decided whether to choose the cash option ($56,818,182.00) or an annuity of 30 payments.

A northwest Iowa man checked his Powerball ticket on the lottery's website and had a tough time believing what he saw.

"Just happened to be on the computer one day and I looked on the (lottery's) website and figured, 'I got that number, I got that number, I got that number,'" David Miller of Sergeant Bluff said. "And then I had to check it about a hundred times because I didn't believe it."

Miller, 70, matched four white balls and the Powerball in the Nov. 8 drawing to win a $10,000 prize. And since he added the Power Play® to his purchase for an extra dollar, his prize tripled to $30,000.

The winning numbers in that night's $202.6 million jackpot drawing were: 9-19-33-38-54 and Powerball 15. The Power Play number was 3. One ticket sold in Missouri won the jackpot in that drawing. Saturday's jackpot is an estimated $70 million.

$2 million Hoosier Lotto winner comes forward!
The holder of the $2 million winning Hoosier Lotto ticket sold in Lebanon has come forward. The lucky winner is Lisa Jennings of Frankfort.

The Clinton County woman purchased her winning ticket at The Barn at 1404 W. South St. in Lebanon. Jennings' ticket matched all six numbers in the Oct. 22 drawing - and beat odds of 1 in more than 12 million. The winning numbers in the Oct. 22 drawing were: 8-9-11-35-42-44.

As she claimed her winnings at Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis, Jennings talked about the moment she discovered she was holding a winning ticket.

"I ran the gamut of emotions," said Jennings. "I went from elation to thinking 'I'm going to be sick,' to fear to 'what do I do now?' Then disbelief set in."

Jennings, who works in manufacturing operations, had the option to take payment of $2 million over 30 years. Instead, Jennings opted to take the cash option and received payment as a lump sum of approximately $808,000 before taxes.

Jennings said the timing of the win is great because she is in the process of selling her home and buying a new one and the windfall opens up additional options.

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.

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.
   
 
Elizabeth City retiree to 'live a little easier' with $1 million Powerball win
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.

Forbes' Quick Pick ticket matched all five white balls but not the red Powerball in the Oct. 22 drawing, beating odds of one in 5.1 million. She learned of her big win the next morning when she called the lottery's hotline to check her numbers.

"It was really surreal," Forbes said. "I called twice to make sure I had the numbers written down correctly. Then I woke up my husband and said 'Honey, I think we won a nice prize.' This will change our lives in a lot of ways for the better. I'm definitely going to live a little easier."

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.

"The better your education, the better your life," Forbes said. "It's important for the kids to know that we are behind them. I appreciate what the lottery does for education. That money couldn't go to a better place."
