Paola Resident Claims $2 Million Powerball Prize!

A Paola resident came forward this morning to claim the $2 million Powerball cash prize from the Saturday, August 5 drawing!  The lucky winner, who wished to remain anonymous, matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball to win $1 million.  Since the ticket also included the Power Play option, the prize doubled to $2 million! 

"I didn't realize there was a $2 million winner in Saturday night's drawing," said the winner.  "When I had my ticket checked yesterday, a claim form automatically printed out with a validation slip that said I had to claim the prize in Topeka.  When I realized how much I had won, I was very surprised.  It still hasn't sunk in." 

The lucky winner won the $2 million Powerball cash prize on a $15 Quick Pick Powerball Power Play ticket.  The winning numbers in the August 5 drawing were 11-21-28-33-45 Powerball 11 Power Play 2. The winner's winning numbers were 11-21-28-33-45 Powerball 9. 

The winning ticket was sold at Fuel Expresso 15, located at 1005 N. Pearl St. in Paola.  For selling the winning ticket, the store is eligible for a $1,000 selling bonus.
