Stuarth Castillo was filled with joy when he learned he had won a million dollars playing the US Powerball game. Castillo is now among the luckiest participants of the US Powerball who have become millionaires in the month of May.
It was towards the end of May when Castillo decided to buy a ticket for the US Powerball draw. He knew which drew he was going to participate with the ticket he would purchase for the US Powerball. He also knew the numbers he would choose on the ticket he was about to purchase.
However, Castillo had no idea that he would end up winning million-dollar prize money. For him, it was just an attempt to win the jackpot prize money, which he thought was close to impossible.
For him, he just made an attempt thinking that he may be able to win a few hundred dollars from the draw. What he didn’t know was that million-dollar prize money was waiting for him just around the corner.

Stuarth Castillo’s Attempt
Stuarth Castillo revealed to the officials that he had participated in the draw thinking that he would win $150 million from the draw. He had never participated in any lottery draw game in the past.
He had never thought of playing the lottery games but the recent years have been very harsh on him. Although he never wanted it in the first place, he was compelled to do it thinking that he will be able to turn his life around if things go well.
He had heard from his friends that the US Powerball is the largest lottery game and it pays tremendously if one happens to win a prize. So he thought he should give it a shot. Luckily for him, it wasn’t just a $100 prize money he had won.
He won prize money worth $1,000,000 after matching 66-61-50-39-2 which were all the primary numbers. Stuarth stated he had remained completely stuck with the basics, which is why he wasn’t able to double his prize money. If he had selected the Power Play multiplier operation, he could have won $2,000,000.
Castillo plans on upgrading his house and wants to add an EV to the garage. He also plans on helping out his brother start a new business.
