Recent Record Powerball Jackpot Produces Four Texas Millionaires
Last week's record setting $1.5 BILLION Powerball Jackpot produced 3 grand prize winners in California, Tennessee, and Florida. Even though nobody matched all six numbers in Texas, several millionaires were produced in the Lone Star State.
Quick Pick tickets sold in four Texas stores matched the 5 non-Powerball numbers from January 13th. That's good for $1 million on each of those tickets. Only one of those ticket holders spent the extra dollar to make it a Power Play ticket which took that person's winnings to $2 million.
Those winning tickets were sold in:
- OLMOS MART, 4302 MCCULLOUGH AVE., OLMOS PARK, TEXAS
- BFM FOOD MART, 5825 BELLAIRE BLVD., HOUSTON, TEXAS
- HORIZON #1, 104 N HIGHWAY 287, DECATUR, TEXAS
- QUIKTRIP #936, 3230 W MOCKINGBIRD LN., DALLAS, TEXAS
The largest lottery jackpot in world history generated $266.7 million in sales in Texas, resulting in $106.7 million for Texas’ Foundation School Fund. Powerball sales from Nov. 5 to Jan. 13 culminated in $49 million in prizes to players and $13 million in retailer commissions. For the Jan. 13 drawing, nationally, there were 26,110,643 non-jackpot prizewinning tickets sold and Texas sold 2,289,864 non-jackpot prizewinning tickets for the Jan. 13 drawing.
