Online news feed alerts Jasper woman to $2M Powerball win
An Internet site played a big role in helping a Georgia Lottery Powerball winner to come forward in claiming her prize. Janon Frei of Jasper matched the first five winning numbers from the Sept. 17 Powerball drawing, winning a $2 million prize.

Frei selected the Power Play option for an additional $1 to increase her non-jackpot winnings.

She claimed her winnings Tuesday evening at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton.

While scrolling through her news feed on Facebook, Frei saw that KnowPickens.com had written a story about the unclaimed Powerball ticket that was purchased locally.

"I said to myself, 'Those numbers look familiar,' " she recalled. "I was at a dog show and was going to check later."

Frei, 50, soon changed her mind and checked her Quik Pik ticket.

"I was shaking. I was really excited," she said. "I stayed at the dog show and showed all weekend."

A registered nurse, Frei is a dog lover who has exhibited Jack Russell Terriers at various conformation dog shows for 14 years.

With three children, the lucky winner intends to pay off her home mortgage and car note.

West End Grocery, 2881 Jerusalem Church Road in Jasper, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.
   
 
San Mateo $228.4 Million Jackpot-Winning Powerball® Ticket Claimed!
California's latest multi-millionaire wasted no time coming forward and claiming his massive $228.4 million jackpot! Vinh Nguyen walked into the California Lottery's Hayward District office late Thursday afternoon with his winning Powerball ticket in hand.

Nguyen was the sole winner in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing matching the numbers 7, 14, 24, 41, 21 and the Powerball number 26.

While Nguyen said he did not wish to do media interviews, he did talk about what his life has been like for the mere 20 hours between Wednesday night's draw and when he decided to claim his prize.

Nugyen, who works as a nail technician, told the California Lottery that like most Lottery players he was always hoping to win the jackpot. But when he realized he was the jackpot winner, Nguyen said "I read the numbers, I didn't think I had won."

Nguyen said he has been playing the Lottery for the last five years. He decides how much he spends every week depending on how well he does in tips at work. Nguyen spent $30 buying 15 Powerball tickets for Wednesday's drawing. "I picked my own numbers for the ticket. They were all random. Whatever numbers come into my head I pick," Nguyen said.

Nguyen told the California Lottery he has no plans for the money yet. "I just want to be a normal man," Nguyen said.

Nguyen chose the annuity payment option which will give him the full $228,467,735 jackpot paid out over 30 years.

The jackpot-winning ticket was purchased at Dehoff's Key Market, which is located at 500 South Norfolk Street in San Mateo. Dehoff's Key Market will receive a retailer bonus of $1 million for selling the jackpot-winning ticket. "We don't have final plans yet for the money. We have all kinds of improvements for the stores that we are always working on and we are discussing other things. This is a nice windfall since the margins in our business are so thin," said Chris Dehoff, President of Dehoff's Key Markets. The family-run chain of three stores has had a $10,000 winner in the past but nothing of this magnitude, according to Dehoff.

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.
