New Jersey Couple Wins $1,000,000 on Jackpocket

20th Millionaire Alert: New Jersey Couple Wins $1,000,000 on Jackpocket

They missed the $270,000,000 Powerball by just 1 digit!

“We were in the basement playing with our boys. I thought: 'Should I play some lottery today? 'And my husband was like, 'Yeah, why not?'"

Only on Jackpocket does a ‘why not?’ turn into $1,000,000!

This NJ couple scored seven-figures after ordering a lucky Powerball ticket on Jackpocket. 

“It’s a great invention. We were just looking for a way to play the lottery from the comfort of our own home.”

How winners choose their lucky numbers will always fascinate us. This couple found their winning combination by focusing on family. 

“Everything was an age or a birthday. The first one was my wife and then my youngest son. The third one was me and then the dog.”

And they were just one digit away from winning the $270,000,000 top prize!

“The Powerball number we picked was 13 and the winning number was 14! That's nuts.”

The winner joked, “I just wish it was 27 or 30, you know?  Then it would've been like, okay, whatever.”

Where did the number 13 come from? “The day we got married.”

This super fortunate family was watching "Stranger Things" on TV when they got the Big Winner notification from Jackpocket that would change their lives forever.

“My wife checked the phone and saw the alert, and we were like, ‘Nah, that's a scam.’ We clicked into the ticket order on the app and she was going crazy…I'm like, ‘Let me see that!’ I saw million and then that was it!”

So everyone wants to know, what are they planning to do with the win?

“Invest. We’re going to make sure our children are set up for the future.”

Congratulations to this NJ couple and their very lucky family!
