One lucky winner for PowerBallSaturday October 9th 2010
The SuperEnalotto has been eclipsing many of the other large world lottery games for the last week or two. As a result the two US multi state games that have been boasting impressive jackpots, seem to have been overlooked slightly. However, one of those jackpots is no longer there as after the Wednesday evening draw there was one lucky winner for the PowerBall jackpot, scooping a staggering $61.5 million jackpot and the nation is still waiting for this lucky lottery winner to come forward.
Obviously this PowerBall winner has 180 days in which to make their claim, but it is more common that winners of these kinds of lottery jackpots, come forward almost immediately, which leads many lottery officials to issue pleas to such winners after only a couple of days in most cases
The main fear is that lottery winners may have forgotten to check their tickets, or that they even have them. The more time that passes without a claim being made, the more chance there is of the ticket being lost and consequently, a claim never being made.
The winning lotto ticket for this PowerBall draw was purchased by a player in Florida at 4pm on the day of the draw, from a store in Lakewood Ranch called Hess Express. So if you buy lottery tickets from the store in question and you hold one for this PowerBall draw in question, you may want to check it right away if you haven’t already done so.
The store that sold the winning PowerBall ticket is expected to get a $40,000 bonus for selling it.
