The last player from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis of Waterford who won $70 million playing Powerball in February. With her winnings, Davis said she planned to buy a new house and car.

And while she was a lucky winner, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland in 2019 went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.

Ticket holders each select five numbers from one to 69 for the five white balls and a number from one to 26 for the Powerball.

Players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by two, three, four, five or 10 times by purchasing the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play.

Drawings take place every Wednesday and Saturday from the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee.

The prizes

“There are nine ways to win a prize in Powerball. All prizes are set cash amounts, except the Grand Prize. In California, prize payout amounts are pari-mutuel and determined by sales and the number of winners,” the Powerball website explains.

The Powerball jackpot prize value continues to grow until it is won. “The Match 5 + Power Play prize value is always $2 million, while the 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot is $150 million or less,” according to the website.

Jackpot winners can receive their prize as either an annuity or a lump-sum payment. For those who choose the annuity option, the winner is guaranteed to receive 30 graduated payments over 29 years. The annual payments increase by five percent until the 30th and final payment, the website notes.

What are the odds of winning?

The overall odds of winning a prize are one in 24.9, while the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million, according to the Powerball website.

The odds of winning a prize are the same in every Powerball drawing. “Even if there are more tickets sold in a particular drawing, your odds of winning a prize are the same,” the Powerball website states.

The grand prize offering was the eighth-largest jackpot in the game’s history. ]]>
