Monroe's Powerball ticket sells for $1 million

As at the beginning of the year, a person who purchased a Powerball ticket in Connecticut is the winner of one million dollars. 

The big $842 million Powerball jackpot was won by a single ticket that was sold in the state of Michigan.

In the first Powerball drawing of the year, the winning numbers were 12, 21, 42, 44, and 49, while the number that was drawn for the red Powerball wheel was 1. 

There was a threefold multiplier for the Power Play. Across the country, there were four people who won $1 million in the Powerball lottery. 

There were three additional tickets that were sold in the states of California, Florida, and Maryland. Every single one of them had a match with the five white balls, but they did not have the Powerball.

Camaro Mini Mart in Monroe was the location where the Connecticut ticket worth one million dollars was purchased.

By including the Power Play, two tickets from the states of Florida and Texas were able to match all five white balls and win prizes totaling $2 million, as stated by Powerball.

A lump sum payment of $425.2 million or a payment of $842.4 million in 30 annual installments will be available to the person who purchased the ticket that won the enormous prize. Those figures are before taxes.
