CT Sells First Powerball® $2,000,000 Prize Winning Ticket on Sept. 5
September 06, 2012 --
There were no jackpot winners for the Wednesday Powerball® drawing, but one incredibly lucky person who purchased a Powerball with Power Play
® ticket in Connecticut is now $2,000,000 richer this morning.
The winning Powerball numbers drawn on September 5 were 4 - 19 - 26 - 42 - 51. CT’s winning ticket holder matched the first five numbers, but missed the Powerball number, 29. Normally a $1,000,000 prize, the player, who added the Power Play feature to their ticket for an extra $1, automatically doubled their prize for a cool $2,000,000—the first winner in Connecticut to do so.
In total, 8,497 winning Powerball tickets were sold statewide for that date, with prizes ranging from $4 to $2,000,000.
The multi-million dollar winner has yet to step forward to claim their prize. CT Lottery officials are urging players to check their tickets.
