There’s A Powerball Winner

There is a winner. Yes, someone won the Christmas powerball jackpot. Originally, lottery officials expected the jackpot to be 2-hundred-80 million dollars. Thanks to a Christmas day surge in sales, that jumped to nearly 3-hundred-fifteen-million. Although the odds of winning are not in players favor that did not stop Americans from spending more than 4-hundred-million dollars during this jackpot. Officials say the winning ticket was purchased at a convenience store in Hurricane West, Virginia. Just in case you missed them. The powerball numbers are: 5 – 14 – 16 – 29 – 53 and the powerball was 7.
