Utah man claims PowerBall prizeFriday June 3rd 2011
All eyes have been on the US multi state game PowerBall in recent weeks as the jackpot continued to rise. Reaching a massive $200 million for the draw that took place on Wednesday 1st June when it was eventually won. News is in that the lucky jackpot winner was from New York but no further details are available yet. However, we can bring you news of another PowerBall winner as a Utah Man claims a PowerBall prize from the previous week.
As many of you will know, Utah does not actually offer the PowerBall as it does not have a state game, but Nathan Anderson, who has been named as this lucky winner, always buys a ticket when he visits Idaho. This time, Andersons lottery ticket matched the first five numbers drawn, but not the PowerBall to net him the tidy sum of $200,000.
This winning ticket was purchased from La Tienda, a store in Franklin, Idaho and this is the second time that this retailer has sold a big winning lottery ticket in the last six months. The previous big winner was again a PowerBall ticket which was worth a monster $1 million and belonged to Cindy Flint, her mother Donna and her sister Carol.
Obviously this most recent win is not as large as the previous for the store, but still a life changing win all the same and Anderson plans to use this PowerBall fortune very wisely and is considering buying a property in the Cache Valley area.
If you want to buy lottery tickets for the PowerBall draw taking place on Saturday 4th June, you will be playing for a $20 million jackpot.
