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."

Wichita Residents Celebrate Anniversary with $1 Million Powerball Win
Wichita residents Ricky and Kathy Clark have a lot to celebrate this week. The couple not only celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary September 10, but they're also celebrating becoming the Kansas Lottery's newest millionaires! The lucky couple has claimed the $1 million Powerball ticket from the September 10 drawing!

"I didn't even realize we had the winning ticket until Monday," said Ricky Clark. "When I was at work I heard there was a big winner from south central Kansas, so I called Kathy and asked her to check our ticket. When she called me back saying we had won, I couldn't believe it."

The Clarks matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball to win the $1 million cash prize.

"After Ricky called me and asked me to check our ticket, I asked our son to look up the winning numbers," said Kathy Clark. "When he read the numbers to me and they were all in sequence to the numbers on our ticket, I couldn't believe it. I called Ricky back and said, 'We're the missing link! We've got the winner!' This is a dream come true, a true blessing. It's very emotional."

According to Ricky Clark, he only buys Powerball tickets on Saturday and he always purchases a $12 Quick Pick ticket.

"I don't know why I only play on Saturdays, but it seems to have worked out so why change it," he said. "Winning such a large prize hasn't sunk in, but I'm sure it will soon."

The Clarks, who have five grown children and seven grandchildren, plan to purchase a new home with their winnings and may take a second honeymoon.

The winning ticket was purchased at Kwik Shop 706, located at 3601 E. 47th St. S. in Wichita. For selling the winning ticket, the store is eligible to receive a $1,000 selling bonus.

NW IOWA WOMAN PLANS TO BUILD A NEW HOUSE AFTER WINNING $250,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
A northwest Iowa woman said she and her husband have plans to build a new house after winning $250,000 playing Powerball.

Terri Sneller of Rock Rapids won her big prize in the Aug. 10 drawing after matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball.

"I don't think it's really hit yet," Sneller told lottery employees Friday as she claimed her prize at the lottery's regional office in Storm Lake. "I do feel lucky."

Sneller's easy pick ticket initially won a $50,000 prize, but since she added the Power Play option to her purchased, her prize multiplied to $250,000.

The 31-year-old certified nursing assistant said she bought her winning ticket Aug. 8 at Casey's, 709 First Ave. in Rock Rapids and didn't find out she won until Thursday morning.

"I was freezing sweet corn and I was taking a break so I said, 'Oh yeah. I'll check my Powerball ticket,'" Sneller said. "I had all the numbers but one white ball."

Sneller still needed confirmation, though. So she called her mom to verify that she was looking at the correct set of winning numbers, and then she called her husband so that he could come home and she could go verify her winning ticket at a lottery retailer in town.

She got the confirmation she needed, but she said family members were still a little skeptical of her big lottery win.

"Well nobody really believed me until I found the Iowa Lottery on Facebook and it said whoever was the lucky winner at Casey's in Rock Rapids. Then they all kind of started believing me."
   
 
Onsted Woman Wins $1 Million Powerball Prize Playing Online
An Onsted woman had to pull her car over when she learned she had won $1 million playing the Michigan Lottery's Powerball game.

Tammy Weadock and her husband, Terry, were driving home from their small business, Dominant Systems, located in Ann Arbor, when they got the life-changing call from the Lottery's online game service center: Tammy had matched the five white balls drawn in the July 13 Powerball drawing to win $1 million.

"My first thought was that one of my kids was playing a joke one me," said Ms. Weadock. "I even asked if the person calling was a friend of my son or daughter."

Meanwhile, Terry was pacing on the roadside while Tammy continued the phone call.

"Terry walked around the car about a dozen times and finally stopped at the front of the car and I read his lips as he asked me 'How much did you win?'" said Ms. Weadock. "When I told him it was $1 million he started screaming and running around the car."

The Weadocks visited Lottery headquarters Thursday to claim the big prize. With their winnings, they plan to pay some bills, invest in their small business, and take a family vacation.

"We've owned our business for 30 years and it can be stressful. Since we learned we won this money we've been thanking God for the blessing and planning how to spend it to make sure we do the right thing," Ms. Weadock said.
   
 
Virginia resident wins $100,000 Powerball prize in Minnesota
Toni Samskar was telling her parents just last week how lucky her fiancé, John Reimer of Virginia, is. "I said, 'I'm waiting for him to win the Powerball,'" she recalled. Her prediction came true on July 16.

Reimer stopped at Super One Foods in Pike Lake, MN after work on July 14 to pick up some food for supper. He also purchased tickets for the July 16 Powerball drawing. He added the Power Play multiplier option for an extra $1 per play, which he says is routine for him.

On Monday morning (July 18), Reimer made his usual stop for a newspaper on his way to work. While he was at the store, he decided to check his tickets. "I checked the first ticket and got nothing," he recalled. "The second ticket said, 'Contact Lottery office.' I never got that message before. I called Toni and said, 'What do you think this means? I'm kind of excited!'"

Reimer followed up on that call by going to the Lottery's office, where he learned that his ticket won $100,000. "The goosebumps on my arms went 'boom!' I called Toni and said, 'I can’t quite retire yet, but it's a nice prize!'"

The numbers on Reimer's ticket matched 4 of the first 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win $50,000. Because he purchased Power Play, his prize was multiplied by the Power Play multiplier of 2 that was drawn on July 16.

Super One Foods is located at 5698 Miller Trunk Highway in Pike Lake. Reimer claimed the prize on July 19.
   
 
Boyne City Lottery Club Wins $1 Million Powerball Prize
A lucky group of 23 co-workers from Great Lakes Energy in Boyne City, MI is splitting a $1 million Powerball prize.

The 23 Dreams lottery club matched the five white balls drawn on June 15 to win the big prize. They bought the winning ticket at the Up North Party Store, located at 1176 South M-75 in Boyne City. The club missed winning the $153 million Powerball jackpot by just one number. The club's ticket had the number 11 for the Powerball and 10 was drawn.

"We've had a lottery club for several years and everyone who plays does it for fun, no one ever expected to win," said Al Aown, the club's representative. "The morning after the drawing a co-worker rushed into my office to tell me the Up North Party Store had sold a winning ticket."

"When I checked the ticket I couldn't really believe it."

While Aown worked on arranging the details of claiming the $1 million prize, he tried to keep news of the big win quiet.

"There are no secrets in Boyne City," said Aown. "I had messages by the time I got home that night from people asking if we'd won."

"Having a ticket worth $1 million really makes your mind race. To keep it safe, I hid it in the pocket of an old suit in the back of my closet."

Each member of the 23 Dreams lottery club will receive about $43,400.

“It’s not enough to retire, but I know everyone is looking forward to having a nice chunk of cash,” Aown said.
   
 
WATERLOO MAN WAS ONE NUMBER AWAY FROM WINNING A BIG POWERBALL JACKPOT
A Waterloo, Iowa man was just one number away from winning a big Powerball jackpot last week and ended up winning $50,000.

But Tony Kerr said he didn't know he won until he had his ticket checked at a local gas station last week.

"I didn't even know there was a winner," Kerr told lottery employees Friday as he claimed his prize at the lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. "I was just turning in some scratch off tickets from my birthday and I had them check the ticket."

Kerr's easy pick ticket matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball in the July 13 drawing to win a $50,000 prize.

The 50-year-old said he bought his winning ticket July 12 at Kwik Star, 100 W. Gilbert Drive in Evansdale. Kerr, who works for a welding and fabrication shop in Waterloo, said a portion of his lottery winnings will be used to pay medical bills and he plans to save the rest.
   
 
Chino Hills Powerball Jackpot Winners Come Forward to Claim $528 Million Prize
After a wait of a little more than six months, Marvin and Mae Acosta, the winners of the largest lottery prize in California Lottery history, finally came forward to claim their prize. They were one of three big winners of prizes worth $528.8 million from the January 13th Powerball jackpot of nearly $1.6 billion. The other two tickets were sold in Tennessee and Florida.

"We finally know who our mystery winners are! It may have taken six months for them to come to one of our offices, but these winners did just what we tell all our winners to do - they read our Winner's Handbook and then assembled a team of legal and financial advisors to help them make the most of this windfall and prepare them for their new life as Lottery winners," California Lottery Director Hugo Lopez said. "We couldn't be happier for them and are thrilled they took the time to assemble the right team before coming in to claim."

The Acostas purchased their winning ticket at the 7-Eleven located at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway in Chino Hills (San Bernardino County). Their ticket matched all six winning numbers. The couple has opted to take the cash option amount of $327.8 million before federal taxes. The lucky retailer was also a big winner! The Chino Hills 7-Eleven location received the maximum bonus of $1,000,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The jackpot was the largest in U.S. lottery history and became a nationwide phenomenon, as players rushed out to buy tickets so they could be a part of history. In total, California players scooped up $386 million worth of Powerball tickets during the historic run, and the jackpot generated an estimated additional $150 million for California public schools.

The Acostas respectfully declined all requests for media interviews and did not wish to have any additional information or photos released, though they did provide this statement:

"We are thankful and blessed for the rare gift that has been placed in our care. We have engaged a team of advisors to educate and guide us through this process so that we can be good stewards of these new resources. While many decisions are still to be made, we have committed nearly all of this new resource to a Trust and to charities that are important to us. While we are very grateful for the wonderful wishes and encouragement we've received, it is not our intention to become public figures, and we ask for and appreciate privacy going forward. Thank you."
