3. Anonymous Texan won $250,000
Non-Texas players should know that there are two ways to hit an All or Nothing jackpot. Match 12 out of 12 numbers to win $250,000. Or match 0 out of 12 numbers. Well, this lucky Jackpocket player in Dallas managed to match every 👏 single 👏 number 👏 with their Quick Pick ticket.
2. M.V. hit the $675,000 jackpot
M.V. in Houston chose a lucky time to place her Two Step order: 2:20 pm on 2/20/2020. On the dot. She almost didn’t believe us when we sent her a “YOU HIT THE JACKPOT” email. “At first, I thought my phone got a virus or something was wrong,” she says. “I carefully checked my ticket numbers and it was amazing to find all the numbers matching.”
1. Brandon won $1,000,000 as a college sophomore
The youngest player on our list is also our biggest winner. Brandon was a 20-year-old college sophomore when he won $1 million on Powerball using the app. At the time he said, “My mom always said money doesn’t mean everything, but extra money does help. Especially as a college student.”
Everything's Coming Up Sevens
