$1 million Powerball score

Posted By on Thu, Jan 21, 2010 at 9:26 AM

The Arkansas Lottery reports a $1 million Powerball winner in Arkansas. From the lottery:

A Uniontown retailer sold a winning PowerballÒ ticket for the January 20th draw with a prize value of $1 million. The winning white ball numbers for the drawing, at Universal Studios in Orlando, were 15, 32, 43, 44 and 46 and the red Powerball number was 19. The lucky winner matched all five white ball numbers for a $200,000 prize.  But the player selected the multiplier option Powerplay and was automatically qualified for the “Match 5” $1 million prize! The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) also announced that two other winning tickets were sold, for prizes with a value of $40,000 in Pine Bluff, and $10,000 in Van Buren. Altogether, the ASL sold 9,882 winning tickets for Wednesday night’s draw.

FYI: Payoffs at this level are paid in lump sums, not annuitized, but taxes are withheld.

ON THE JUMP: Stealing lottery tickets is the road to ruin, not riches.
