First-ever Powerball win in Michigan

$128.6 million Powerball win comes just one week after $140 million Mega Millions jackpot won in same state

By Todd Northrop

The USA's two biggest multi-state lottery games produced $100 million+ jackpot winners within the same week — both in the state of Michigan.

Mega Millions was the first to turn out a grand prize winner.  On Oct. 29, one lucky ticket sold in Michigan's Upper Peninsula region matched the first five numbers plus the Mega Ball number to win it all.

The jackpot was worth $140 million, or $94.3 million if awarded as one lump-sum cash payment.  Both amounts are before taxes are withheld.

The winning numbers for the Oct. 29 Mega Millions drawing were 4, 19, 26, 28, and 39, with Mega number 14.

Then last night, about a week after the big Mega Millions jackpot, one Powerball lottery ticket sold in Michigan matched the first five numbers plus the Powerball number to win a massive $128.6 million jackpot.  (The estimated jackpot prior to the drawing was $123 million.)  If taken as a lump-sum cash payout, the amount is $70 Million, before taxes.

It is the first time a jackpot-winning Powerball ticket has been sold in the state of Michigan since the game went on sale in the state on Jan. 31, 2010.

The winning ticket was sold at the Uptown Book Store, 16541 Woodward Ave., in Highland Park.

The winning Powerball numbers were 7, 12, 23, 34, and 38, with Powerball number 33.  The Power Play multiplier was 4.

The Power Play, a $1 optional purchase on top of the regular $1 Powerball ticket price, multiplies all non-jackpot prizes by up to 5 times.  But if a player matches the first five numbers, they automatically get their prize upgraded to $1 million, regardless of the Power Play number selected.

In addition to the big Powerball jackpot winner Saturday night, another 11 players will receive a second-prize payout for matching the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number:  3 from Arizona, 1 from Florida, 1 from Indiana, 1 from Missouri, 1 from New York, 2 from South Carolina, 1 from Virginia, and 1 from Washington, D.C.  One of the South Carolina players purchased the Power Play option, automatically increasing their payout to $1 million.

For the complete rundown of all Powerball and Mega Millions game and drawing information players are directed to USA Mega (www.usamega.com), the Web site dedicated to the United States's two biggest multi-state lottery games.

              Is the lottery distributing our playing money to certain state demography areas. I SENT $5 QUICK PICK TO A LOCAL DEMOGRAPHY AREA IN MICHIGAN.I  wonder if it was a wealthy neighborhood, a middle class neighborhood or a poor neighborhood that won the jackpot in michigan. IN NEW YORK  I DO NOT SEE TOO MANY POOR NEIGHBORHOODS WINNING THE BIG LOTTERY PRIZES.

              MAYBE THAT IS WHY THEY CALL THE LOTTERY A TAX ON THE POOR.(OH, I'M JUST JOKING TOO)

                What if it is the same person............Probably no way to calculate the odds on that happening...

                  Sold in a bookstore, hmm...

                  I love bookstores, bookstores are some of my favorite places.

                  I've never seen one sell lottery tickets though. 

                  I wish they'd sell tickets in a bookstore around me.

                  First, they'd have to build a bookstore though.

                  Actually, it'd be nice to have a bookstore/liquor store combination.

                  So I wouldn't have to drive 35 miles to get a dadgum bottle of whiskey!

                            You got that right, Todd. Every time I see young people in a bookstore, they're in the magazine section or books about video games and such.

                            I love books though and read a lot. I just hope this new kindle type stuff doesn't kill the book business and bookstores.
