Where is the $213 million California Powerball Winner?

Powerball NewsTuesday October 29 2013 – The California winner of the $213 million Powerball prize has still not come forward despite almost a week passing since the jackpot was won.

This was the first jackpot Powerball win for a Californian resident since the state joined the game back in April and is the third biggest lottery jackpot ever won in the Golden State.

The Top Two..

The state’s biggest lottery prize was won by a syndicate from Anaheim who won a $315 million Mega Millions jackpot on October 19 2005. At the time, this was the second biggest jackpot ever to be won in the United States. The syndicate members, who worked at a Kaiser Permanente medical center, celebrated their new found fortune by buying lunch for all their colleagues.

Holding second place in the California Lottery win table is Jacki Wells Cisneros, who won a $266 million jackpot in May 2010. Long-time NBC-LA newswoman Cisernos found out she had won the jackpot after one of her colleagues handed her a copy of the news report they were due to run stating that the winning ticket was purchased in her hometown of Pico Rivera. Since her win, Ciserno has established the Gilbert and Jacki Foundation to support Hispanic students, with particular emphasis on those studying broadcast journalism.

Retailer Commission

The owners of the stores which sold those winning tickets also cashed in as they each received half a percent of a winning jackpot prize, up to a total value of $1 million, in commission!

The retailer bonus scheme also means that Fast N Easy store owner Vikram Vohre (pictured below), whose store sold the $213 million winning Powerball ticket last week, will also benefit from a cool $1 million windfall. Vohre says the money will help them open even more stores in the area.

Despite already owning 21 stores in Fresno, Vohre says this particular store, located on East Shields Avenue, is his “lucky store” after already selling a $20,000 winning scratch off, a $10,000 lottery prize and others worth several thousand dollars.

The winning Powerball ticket was sold on the same day of the draw and was one of 150 sold by his employee Lali Dhaliwal that day. Although Vohre won’t speculate on the identity of the winner, he has said it is likely to be a local person as the majority of their customers are from the neighbourhood.

So if you are a Fresno resident or you know a friend or family member who is, make sure you and everyone you know has checked their Powerball tickets as someone out there is worth $213 million! The winning numbers can be viewed on Powerball.net.

After rolling over on Saturday night, tomorrow’s Powerball jackpot is worth $50 million. Before then however, the Mega Millions will be drawn tonight which has an estimated jackpot of $75 million.

Ohio Classic Lotto Jackpot Reaches $50 Million

ohiolotteryMonday October 28 2013 – The jackpot in Ohio’s state lottery game, Classic Lotto, continues to rollover after the results from Saturday’s draw revealed no top prize winner. Thanks to a long rollover session, the jackpot has now reached $50 million after players in the last 295 draws failed to match the winning jackpot numbers.

The last time the Ohio Lottery jackpot was won was back on December 7 2011 when one ticket matched the six main numbers to win a jackpot worth $2.7 million.

Rollovers of this magnitude are nothing new to the Ohio Classic Lotto as, back in 2007-08, the jackpot rolled over a total 121 times to reach $24.6 million. It was eventually won on July 2 2008 by Frank Pistella of Pittsburgh.

The $50 million jackpot is up for grabs tonight so the question is whether any players will finally manage to match the winning jackpot numbers or will the top prize remain elusive and roll over for the 296th time?

Other Ohio Lottery News

Saturday’s Powerball draw gave players the chance to win a $40 million jackpot and, despite no players striking it lucky to win the jackpot, six tickets matched the five main numbers to each win $1 million. One of the winning $1 million tickets was purchased in Ohio and we are waiting for the Ohio Lottery to release information on where the winning ticket was purchased.

The remaining winning $1 million Powerball tickets from Saturday’s draw were purchased in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Nebraska and New York. Once the prizes are claimed LotteryWorld will bring you the latest information.

First Ever Powerball Jackpot Win Spreads Lottery Fever in California

Powerball NewsSunday October 27 2013 – California marked its entry into the Powerball fraternity in magnificent style last Wednesday when one ticket holder from the Golden State matched the five main numbers plus the Powerball to scoop an epic $213 million.

The lucky ticket from the Wednesday October 23 Powerball drawing was sold at the Fast ‘N Easy store located at 6451 East Shields Avenue in Fresno.

The race to find the new multi-millionaire winner is now on and it seems likely that the win has given other Californians a taste of Powerball fever.

News of the state’s first ever Powerball win has spread like wildfire, with eager lottery-goers flocking to the Fresno outlet to bask in its new local celebrity status and, of course, to buy tickets for the next drawing.

Players are going out of their way to buy tickets from the Fast ‘N Easy store, particularly as it has already sold lottery tickets that have won five-figure amounts.

The jackpot win grants the Fresno store a cool $1 million bonus for selling the ticket. Vikram Vohra, the owner of the store, has been quizzed about the identity of the winner but says that, while he isn’t sure, he’s narrowed the list down to a few regular customers.

The $213 million win is the third largest in California lottery history. The biggest was in November 2005 when a ticket bought in Anaheim, Orange County, scooped a Mega Millions top prize of $315 million.

While the search for the Powerball winner continues, the store is enjoying a boost to ticket sales aided by the recent big win and expects demand for Mega Millions tickets to also be high due to the $75 million jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing.
