The Powerball Lottery is here to announce the winning of a player that just realized that he had won huge prize money playing the Powerball Lottery. The lottery officials at the Powerball Lottery have revealed that the lucky man is a resident from Broward County.
According to the lottery officials, the name of the Broward County lottery winner is Stephen Shamoun who is 52-years-old. Shamoun is now among the luckiest Powerball Lottery players who are now in the million-dollar group of the operator.
Shamoun has become one of the luckiest players in the month of July that have won a million-dollar prize playing the Powerball Lottery. The player is currently residing in Hollywood and now has a million-dollar in his bank account to live the life of a celebrity.
The lottery officials have revealed that the last ticket Shamoun had purchased was for the July 24, 2021 draw. The player had only a single ticket for the particular draw and even with the single ticket, he ended up winning a $1,000,000 prize.
Stephen Shamoun had visited the head office for the Florida Lotto on August 9, 2021, in the Miami District to claim his prize money. The ticket that Shamoun had purchase matched all five of the primary draw numbers but missed out on the Powerball number.
Shamoun had reportedly picked the Quick Pick option for the only Powerball Lottery ticket he had purchased. The Quick Pick option is for the players that do not want to spend time figuring out the numbers they want to choose for the draw. Instead, they let the computer do the work and randomly choose the numbers for them.
When Shamoun visited the lottery head office, he had a very interesting story to share with the officials about choosing the Quick Pick option. The player informed the officials that he had been choosing the numbers manually for each Powerball Lottery draw.
Unfortunately, he was never successful with any of the numbers he picked. He never even won a few hundred dollars playing the Powerball Lottery and he decided that it was going to be it for him.
The player stated that this was the last time he was going for the lottery draw. So he went to purchase the ticket but did not even bother picking the numbers, and went directly for the Quick Pick.
Later, he did not even check the ticket thinking if he choosing never won him anything, how the auto-pick option could do it. To his utmost surprise and unexplainable shock, he ended up winning $1,000,000 when he checked the ticket.
The player stated he went straight for his regular store “Kwik Stop”, located at 118 North 46th Avenue in Hollywood to purchase more tickets. He also informed the store about it and gave the cashier $100 because he was extremely happy.
