Tuesday October 8 2013 – Five Powerball players correctly matched all five main numbers on Saturday to each win the $1 million prize. However, at the time of writing, none of the lucky prize winners have claimed their prize.
The winning tickets all matched the numbers 11, 12, 17, 39 and 40 (but not the Powerball, which was number 5) and were purchased in the following locations:
Casey’s General Store
504 Second Avenue
Providence, Rhode Island
Shell Station (Colbea Enterprises)
457 Benefit Street
2200 S Mountain Avenue
*The California winner will take home $724,021 due to the pari-mutuel system of calculating prizes
East Chicago, Indiana
4502 Indianapolis Boulevard
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania
The Giant Food Store
1824 Ridge Pike
If you remember buying a Powerball ticket from any of these locations last week then one of the $1 million prizes could be yours! Winning players are advised to sign the back of their ticket to confirm ownership before telephoning their local lottery office to claim their prize. So hunt out your ticket now and check to see if you are one of the brand new Powerball millionaires!
Update: It has just been confirmed that the Sheldon ticket has been claimed by Debbie Schilling, 52, who works in human resources at VH Manufacturing in Rock Valley. Debbie will be sharing the prize money with her husband, Dave, and her six adult children.

A share of a jackpot prize worth $50 million remains unclaimed in the state of Florida, according to the Tampa Bay press. The jackpot was won on Saturday May 25 2013 and was shared by three players from Delaware, Louisiana and Florida. The Floridian player has until midnight on Friday November 22 to claim or the prize will be forfeited.
The winning ticket was purchased at Carrollwood Market in Carrollwood Village, which is located on the corner of South and West Village Drive. Store owner, Nidia Tannous, has already received a retailer bonus of $25,000 for selling the ticket and is eager to track down the rightful winner.
Should the owner of the ticket not come forward in time to claim their prize, which is worth $16.6 million, it will be shared between the Florida Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (80%) and the Florida Lottery prize pool (20%).
