$2 Million PowerBall® Power Play® Ticket Claimed

December 2, 2014

$2 Million PowerBall® Power Play® Ticket Claimed

The $2 million PowerBall® Power Play® ticket from Saturday night's drawing has been claimed by a couple from Warwick. The wife said she closed her eyes and played whatever numbers came strongest to her.  The ticket matched five numbers but not the PowerBall® number, for the standard payout of $1,000,000.  However, the couple added the Power Play® feature for an extra dollar which increased the prize to $2,000,000

The couple said they were on their way to dinner when they decided to clean out their car, which included checking their lottery tickets before throwing them away.  They didn't realize they were multi-millionaires until they claimed their prize at Lottery Headquarters.  The winning ticket was purchased at I M Gan Discount Liquor, 380 Warwick Ave., Warwick. 

The couple shared that they will use the money to take care of bills, including paying off their mortgage and veterinarian bills they recently incurred for their dog. After that, they said they'd talk about having some fun.

Wednesday's estimated PowerBall® jackpot is $40 million.
