Two lucky lottery ticket holders are still celebrating what was a bumper weekend across the US with the jackpots on Powerball and Monopoly Millionaires’ Club both being won! A player from New Jersey became the first-ever Monopoly Millionaires’ Club jackpot winner after correctly matching numbers 1, 9, 11, 12 and 27 with property B. & O. Railroad.
It was only the fledgling lottery’s third drawing and the jackpot being won released another 14 prizes of $1 million to players of the game, which aims for lower top-tier prizes but more big money winners than Powerball and Mega Millions. Monopoly Millionaires’ Club returns tonight with a jackpot of $15 million available, as well as more $1 million awards which can only be won if someone matches all five numbers and the property.
Powerball’s $202 million prize pot was snagged by a ticket holder in Missouri who matched winning numbers 9, 19, 33, 38 and 54 with Powerball 15. The player is still to come forward to collect their life-changing prize but it is known that they bought their winning ticket at the Gateway News shop in St. Louis Union Station.
After no winner on Wednesday night. Powerball’s top prize will stand at $50 million for tomorrow night’s drawing whilst Mega Millions returns tonight, offering a $26 million bounty for matching five main numbers and the Mega Ball.
