Another US Powerball winner claims $1 mln via TheLotter
It is becoming a tradition. On Saturday 27 February 2016 the online lottery agent TheLotter reported its second US Powerball winner over the span of a month who was lucky to win the lottery's second prize of $1 mln. This time the prize was won by the player from Quebec, Canada.
As it usually happens, the Powerball winner could not first believe in his luck. And no wonder at all, as it is not the everyday occasion when the 5 matched Powerball winning numbers pay off $1 mln especially playing the lottery online from abroad. The winner recalls discovering the happy news. “I woke in the morning on Sunday and decided to check US Powerball results while having breakfast. Checking my entry against the published US Powerball results I was literally shocked discovering they were almost identical. It took me a while to come around and I called to my son and said I was checking US Powerball results at the moment and though we were winners.”
On Saturday's evening of 27 February 2016, the 60-years-old Mr. P. attended the hockey match in Montreal with his son while the lottery officials drew Powerball winning numbers in the USA, Florida. Earlier the same evening, before leaving his home (located 100 miles from Montreal) he received a reminder from TheLotter stating that the ticket sales for Powerball were soon to be closed, so he had to be swift. So before starting his car and heading for Montreal to watch the hockey, he went online to TheLotter website and purchased 7 US Powerball tickets. The next morning having his breakfast he went online to check US Powerball results. We can only imagine his amazement discovering that he was only one number away from the jackpot. Nevertheless, he became Powerball winner and a millionaire with $1 mln in his pocket.
