The Pennsylvania lottery team is glad to announce that a player who played and won prize money from the Powerball lottery has finally shown up. The team is ecstatic that the number of Powerball winners in Pennsylvania is constantly on the rise. Whether it is a million-dollar prize or less than that, it is still a win for the state of Pennsylvania.
This means that the PA lottery is able to help more families in the state to have a comfortable life filled with standardized luxuries.
According to the PA lottery officials, the name of the lucky lottery winner is Emmanuel Hernandez who is a 57-year-old man who is a resident of Braddock, a very small town in Allegheny County.
According to the PA lottery team, Hernandez had purchased the Powerball lottery ticket to participate in the January 24, Powerball draw. Hernandez is now one of the luckiest residents of Braddock after winning a $150,000 prize money from Saturday’s Powerball draw.
The numbers Hernandez had chosen match four out of the five lucky numbers, which were 61-59-48-36-22. Additionally, the Red Powerball taken out during the draw was 22, and the result helped Hernandez win huge prize money.
To be precise, the price that Hernandez won initially was just $50,000 but one small decision helped Hernandez triple his win. He informed the officials that he had added the multiplier option on the ticket called the Power Play that anyone can add paying an extra dollar.
As the multiplier yielded from the draw was 3X, therefore, his $50,000 prize money was tripled and he earned $150,000 as a result. The maximum multipliers that can be drawn in a particular draw are up to 10X.
The officials have also confirmed the address of the store which sold the $150,000 prize-winning Powerball lottery ticket to Hernandez. The particular store is located at 24 Braddock Avenue, Braddock, and its name is AI’s Market. Fortunately, the AI’s Market is also eligible to receive a $500 compensation in the form of a bonus commission for selling Hernandez his lucky ticket.
The PA lottery officials also had the opportunity to talk to Hernandez about his winning and his plans in near future. He stated that he was going to retire from his job in a few years’ time so he was worried about saving as much as he could. He was also putting in extra efforts to make money from here and there to make sure he could retire with peace of mind.
He had just started playing lottery games starting 2021 hoping that he would also be able to win something because many people are. Fortunately, the risk he took worked out in his favor and now he does not have to worry about his retirement as much as he did a few days back.
