Two Arkansas Powerball Players Win $100,00 in Power Play Option
A single ticket sold in California won a Powerball jackpot worth $2.04 billion dollars, after taxes $997.6 million cash. Can you imagine what that feels like for the lucky winner?
After a technical problem on Monday night, the Powerball drawing was postponed until Tuesday morning at around 7:57 am (Central). The drawing was held at the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee marking this drawing as the world's largest lottery prize ever won.
Two Arkansans, a player from Hot Springs and Forrest City both won $50,000 in the drawing by matching four white balls and the Powerball. Because they purchased the Power Play option for an additional $1, they each multiplied their prize by 2x to win $100,000.
A total of 56,241 Arkansas players have winning tickets worth a total of $588,160 in cash prizes, 30,885 of those winners bought the Power Play and multiplied their prizes.
