In an exciting turn of events, a lucky individual in Monroe, Connecticut, is celebrating the new year with a windfall of $1 million, thanks to their winning Powerball ticket.
While Michigan claimed the staggering $842 million Powerball jackpot, the spotlight is now on Connecticut for producing one of the four nationwide $1 million winners.
The winning numbers for the first Powerball drawing of the year were 12, 21, 42, 44, 49, with the red Powerball being 1, and a Power Play multiplier of 3X.
The winning ticket, sold at Camaro Mini Mart in Monroe, matched all five white balls, securing its fortunate holder a life-changing sum.
It wasn’t just Connecticut that experienced Powerball success; three other states also had $1 million winners.
These lucky ticket holders, located in California, Florida, and Maryland, matched the five white balls but missed out on the Powerball.
Adding to the excitement, two tickets from Florida and Texas each secured $2 million prizes by including the Power Play with their matching five white balls, according to Powerball.
While the $1 million winners celebrate their newfound wealth, the holder of the massive $842 million jackpot faces a crucial decision.
They can opt for 30 annual payments of $842.4 million or choose a lump sum payment of $425.2 million, though these figures are before taxes.
As the nation revels in Powerball fever, the spotlight remains on Monroe, Connecticut, where a resident’s $1 million victory has added a touch of magic to the start of the year.
