The ticket was said to be purchased Sunoco gas station in Lapeer, Michigan.
After last Saturday’s number drawings, nobody hit all six numbers and the jackpot increased dramatically. Throughout 42 states, U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia, Americans everywhere rushed to pick another set of numbers and hope to win this historic jackpot (which is the 4th largest Powerball prize to date). The very fact that it was the 4th largest in history really helped ticket sales, lottery officials said.
If the winner chooses the cash option, it will come out to about $213 million, which is still a pretty penny. There has been no big winner since June 23rd, where a couple from Connecticut took home roughly $60 million. It’s nice to finally see a winner and begin to start fresh!
