Time to talk about two participants who tried their luck in different draws for the US Powerball and won million-dollar prizes. It is a great honor for the entire US Powerball team to announce two winners who have won the tier-2 prizes from the US Powerball.
This time, the officials have decided to talk about the participants from Queens and their million-dollar wins. Although the players won their prizes several months, they showed up recently to claim their prizes won from the draws.
$1,000,000 Winner from January 5 Draw
The first player is Jorge Ortega who is a resident of Glendale. Ortega had participated in the January 5 draw for the US Powerball. The winning numbers for the January 5 draw were 46-33-25-06-14. The Powerball for the January 5 draw was 17, and the Power Play multiplier was X2.
Jorge successfully matched the five primary numbers from January 5, missing out on the Powerball number. The player didn’t have the Power Play option added to the ticket so he only won the basic tier-2 prize money worth $1,000,000.
Jorge decided to go for the one-time lump sum prize money of $612,240 after the tax deductions. Jorge Ortega had purchased his ticket from Stop & Shop. The particular store is located at 64-65 Myrtle Avenue, Ridgewood.
Apart from the above winner, the January 5 draw produced 13 more tier-2 prize money winners. These players were from different states including Texas, New Jersey, New York, Missouri, Indiana, Maryland, Florida, Arizona, and California.
The January 5 draw also produced two winners of the $450.2 million jackpot prize money. These winners were from Wisconsin and California respectively.
$1,000,000 Winner from November 8 Draw
The second player is CETC25, which is a liability company, which operates near East Elmhurst. The draw the particular company participated in was held back on November 8, 2021. The winning numbers for the particular November 28 draw were 62-57-46-47-21. The Powerball number for the November 28 draw was X3.
Just like Jorge Ortega, CETC25 also matched the tier-2 criteria and won the $1,000,000 prize money. As the Power Play option was not added to the ticket, the prize money was not multiplied.
The liability company also went for the one-time lump sum prize of $612,240 after the deduction of the withholding taxes. The particular ticket was purchased from the 7-Eleven Store. The particular store is located at 79-01 Northern Boulevard, Jackson Heights.
Apart from producing CETC25 as the million-dollar prize winner, the US Powerball has also produced 2 more tier-2 winners, winning $1,000,000 each. These players were from South Carolina and Missouri.
The jackpot prize money for the November 8 draw was $150 million but no one was able to win it.
