First Day of Summer is a Hot One for Moosup’s $2,000,000 Powerball Prize Winner
June 24, 2014 -- The first day of summer was June 21st and it sure was a hot one for Joseph Hawkins of Moosup, which is why he wasted no time getting to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill Monday morning to claim his prize—a scorching $2,000,000 Powerball win.

“I stopped at a convenience store the next day to scan my ticket.  I’ve never seen that many zeros before on a ticket checker,” exclaimed Hawkins with a laugh.  “Just to be sure, I had the clerk check it again for me and he gave me the claim ticket.  I couldn’t believe it.”

The winning Powerball numbers on June 21, 2014 were 5-6-37-41-54, the Powerball number was 26.  Hawkins’ “Quick Pick” ticket matched all five of the winning numbers, but missed the Powerball number.  In total, 6,955 winning Powerball tickets were sold statewide for that date, with prizes ranging from $4 to $2,000,000.

Because Hawkins added the “Power Play®” feature to his ticket for an extra $1, his “Match 5” prize was automatically doubled from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000.  He received a prize check for $1,366,001 (value after taxes).

“I’m going to take care of my kids and buy each of them a home,” said a teary-eyed Hawkins.  “I have a son and a daughter; it hasn’t always been easy for us.”

Hawkins’ winning ticket was purchased at Rob’s Wine & Spirits Shoppe located at 784 Norwich Road in Plainfield.  A retailer since 2012, Rob’s Wine & Spirits will receive a $2,500 bonus check from the CT Lottery for selling the ticket.
