They won the $50,000 by matching 4 numbers plus the Powerball number. The winning numbers were: 22, 24, 40, 52, 64, and the red Powerball 10.
According to a press release from Powerball: Last night’s drawing was the SECOND largest in the American lottery history. There had been no grand prize winner since July 19, when a single ticket sold in California won a jackpot worth $1.08 billion. That amount of money is nothing to sneeze at.
