WALLACE MAN WINS TWO POWERBALL® WITH POWER PLAY® PRIZES
Scott Leatherman of Wallace is a two-time Powerball with Power Play winner, winning $1 million and $20,000 in two recent Nebraska Powerball drawings.
Leatherman is a regular Nebraska Lottery player who purchases nine quick pick Powerball with Power Play tickets for each drawing at Ozzie's I-80 in Sutherland. For the June 20 Powerball drawing, one of his tickets matched all five of the winning white ball numbers (3, 11, 18, 22, 28) for $200,000.
Because Leatherman added the $1 Power Play option to his purchase, his $200,000 prize was automatically multiplied by the 5x multiplier for a total of $1 million.
Two weeks later, another Powerball with Power Play ticket turned out to be worth $20,000 to Leatherman. For the July 8 drawing, one of Leatherman's tickets matched four of the five winning white ball numbers (19, 42, 50, 53, 56) and the Powerball number (39) for $10,000. This second winning ticket was also purchased at Ozzie's in Sutherland.
Because he added Power Play, Leatherman's winnings were multiplied by the 2x multiplier chosen for that drawing for a total prize of $20,000.
While claiming his $1 million prize, Leatherman told Nebraska Lottery officials that he was "excited" to win. He learned he had won after receiving a printout of the winning numbers at Ozzie's while purchasing tickets for the next Powerball drawing. Later, he checked his tickets at home against the winning numbers on the printout. "I was blown away," said Leatherman. "I told my dad, 'We just won a million.'" Leatherman plans to pay bills and remodel his home using his winnings.
The odds of winning $200,000 playing Powerball prize are 1 in 5,138,133. The odds of winning $10,000 playing Powerball are 1 in 723,145. Adding the $1 Power Play option, which does not affect the odds of winning, gives players a 1 in 4 chance at multiplying their winnings between 2 and 5 times. The Match 5 prize is guaranteed to always draw the 5X multiplier, giving players the chance to turn a $200,000 prize into a $1 million prize when purchasing the Power Play option.
