1. A college sophomore won $1 million just a few days after downloading the app

Brandon was a 20-year-old football player working out with the team over summer break when he became Jackpocket's first millionaire. Back in 2018, Brandon of St. Paul, Minnesota matched 5 out of 6 Powerball numbers, and the rest is history.

VIDEO: Who Did Jackpocket's $1 Million Powerball Winner Tell First?

We caught up with Brandon last year on his Powerball Winnerversay. Since his fateful lottery win, he's finished up a master's degree in Sports Management with the ultimate goal of becoming an agent. He has also created his own business, Global Loon Enterprises, which invests in businesses in Minnesota.

Brandon's advice to future big winners? “Read Rich Dad, Poor Dad before you do anything! I didn't start reading that book until a couple of months ago, and I wish I'd read it the day I won the lottery. A lot of my decisions would have been changed. So read books! Anything from investment to financial literacy."

2. A bar manager won 2nd prize in Cash4Life

Top prize in Cash4Life—$1,000 a day for life—may be epic, but this New Jerseyan is here to tell you 2nd prize is not too shabby, too! They won Cash4Life's second prize of $1,000 a week for life, which has a lump sum cash option of one. million. dollars. “The notification first came over my phone as 'You Won Big,' so I just went to the regular New Jersey Lottery site to see what the numbers were and that’s when I had my stroke," the Cash4Life winner said. " I kept looking at them going 'No, this isn’t right.'”

Only a few days into 2021, this $1M winner became Jackpocket's reigning champ for biggest prize wins in the great state of New Jersey. “Those numbers were actually my father’s numbers. My father passed away in 2009, so I’ve been playing his numbers ever since," the player explained. "After I thanked God, I thanked my father.”

3. New Yorker wins a cool mil 

If 4 wasn't this user's lucky number before, it might be now. A New Yorker won a $1,000,000 Powerball prize on her 4th day (and 4th ticket!) on the app. Do you believe in beginner's luck?
