An extra dollar quadrupled the jackpot for two punters

Two lottery players won big in the August, 23 Powerball Lottery draw. The winners, a Rockbridge County woman and Radford man, scooped $200,000 each just paying an extra dollar for Power Play.

When Angela Clark, Rockbridge County resident, checked the winning numbers she quickly realized that one of her Powerball tickets had matched four of the five numbers drawn along with the Powerball number.

According to Virginia State Lottery, that would normally be a $50,000. However, as Angela spent an extra dollar for the Power Play that was 4X, her prize was quadrupled to $200,000. While claiming her prize, Angela said, “I think the first thing I did was scream. I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet.” She bought the winning ticket at a Kroger in Waynesboro. She chose the winning numbers using family birthdays. On being asked about her further plans, Angela said to have no immediate plans for her winning.

On the other hand, when David Hubbard, the Radford resident, checked the winning numbers, he wasn’t much optimistic. He bought his ticket at Braden’s Market, 1800 East Main Street in Radford which matched four of the five numbers along with the Powerball number.

Like Angela, David too spent an extra dollar for Power Play. As a result, his $50,000 ticket became $200,000 worth. David, who is a delivery driver, has no immediate plans for his giant win. However, he might do some travelling.

The winning numbers for the draw were: 6-7-16-23-26 with

Powerball number: 4

Moreover, there were a total of four winning tickets in Virginia to scoop $200,000 in the August 23 drawing. The odds of winning the jackpot were 1-in-292.2 million. The overall odds of winning any prize are 1-in-25.

Powerball drawings take place twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m.
