Powerball Hits $400M As Small Prizes Get Cashed

  • The Powerball Jackpot remains unclaimed and is worth around $400 million.
  • A man in Charlotte, NC claimed a $2 million winning card.
  • A $200,000 winning card was sold in Pennsylvania.

LAS VEGAS - Lottery gamblers all over the United States have been hitting the minor Powerball jackpots, but nobody has won the grand prize yet.

Estimates place the value of the grand prize at around $400 million, with the cash-out value sitting around $292 million - a life changing sum of money to be sure.

However, plenty of other prizes have been claimed in this online lottery cycle, and they serve as a reminder that nearly any amount of money can be life changing.

North Carolina Man Wins $2m

Alfie Farlow of Charlotte, North Carolina claimed a $2 million Powerball jackpot hit, which was the largest in that drawing.

Farlow said that when he won the lottery, he told his family that the amount he won was life changing.

“I told them, ‘I think our life is about to change,’” said Farlow.

Farlow’s jackpot win was achieved by hitting all five white balls, along with the Power Play to double his winnings from $1 million to $2 million.

Pennsylvania Winner Claims $200,000

While the identity of this winner has not yet been revealed, it has been made clear that a winning ticket was sold in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

The ticket hit four of five on the white balls, and also hit the red Powerball bonus to multiply the winnings of $50,000 by four.

The winning ticket was sold at GetGo, located on 430 East Waterfront Drive, Homestead, PA.

With the big jackpot still unclaimed, some online gambling fans are remembering the lottery craze of January 2021, which saw both Powerball and Mega Millions reach new heights.

Could January 2022 hold a similar outcome? Only time will tell.
