Imagine picking all six Powerball winning numbers for the $254,200,000 jackpot, then realizing you lost the golden ticket! That's exactly what the supposed Stamford, Connecticut Powerball winner says happened to him.
According to CBS NEWS on Saturday, November 5th, a sanitation worker went into the store he claims he bought the winning Powerball ticket in, and told Suni Patel, owner of Belltown Superette in Stamford, Connecticut, "You sold me the ticket, but I can’t find my ticket. That’s my number. Patel said ‘I don’t know. Is it a story? I don’t know what to say'."
The Connecticut Lottery affirms the $254,200,000 Powerball winning ticket was purchased at a store in Fairfield County for the November 2, 2011 drawing. However, it seems the largest Powerball winning ticket this year is missing in action.
The Powerball winning numbers for the drawing were 12, 14, 34, 39, 46, the Powerball number was 36. The unidentified Connecticut Powerball winner claims the lottery numbers are his, but so far, no one has come forward with the signed ticket in hand to prove he or she is the winner. At this point, it's anyone's guess!
