$1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold in Connecticut on Halloween, Still Unclaimed

Somewhere in Connecticut, someone bought a prize-winning Powerball® ticket for the October 31 drawing.

 

Editor's Note: The following press release is from the Connecticut Lottery.

Even though there were no jackpot winners in the October 31, 2012, Powerball® drawing, an extra-special Halloween treat was won on one lucky Powerball ticket purchased in Connecticut—a $1,000,000 prize win as a result of matching 5 numbers from the October 31 Powerball drawing.

The winning Powerball numbers drawn on October 31 were 1 - 27 - 31 - 45 - 48.  Connecticut’s winning ticket holder matched the first five numbers, but missed the Powerball number, 5.  In total, 8,615 winning Powerball tickets were sold statewide for that date, with prizes ranging from $4 to $2,000,000. 

The million dollar winner has yet to step forward to claim their prize. Connecticut Lottery officials are urging players to check their tickets. 

Saturday's Powerball jackpot is worth an estimated $124 million. Powerball is drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59pm and is offered at more than 2,700 lottery locations statewide. 

The overall odds of winning a Powerball prize are 1 in 31.8 based on a $2.00 play.  Odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 175,223,510 million.   

The CT Lottery reminds the public that purchasers must be 18 or older, and to please play responsibly.

They always say that the lottery is totally random and not even worth playing, but I have won small to moderate amounts several times (some of my friends even ask me to purchase tickets for them, because they think I'm "lucky," lol) The odds are still very small, but as I have shown, you can increase your chances. For example, you can increase your odds of winning by purchasing your tickets at the beginning of the "cycle"; when the new lots of tickets are placed in the machines, shipped out to shops, etc. because there are more winning tickets in the system. This "Lottery Method" book I bought online explains how to do a lot of that in great detail. Here's a review of it if you're interested: http://gamblingsystemreviews.net/lottery-method/
