Michael McMillan of Southgate collected his $2 million Powerball prize at Lottery Headquarters.
McMillan matched five white ball numbers in the February 23 Powerball drawing. Although he does not have any current plans for his new money, his wife is looking forward to getting new carpet!
McMillan’s $2 million win was the result of his purchase of the Power Play option with his Powerball wager. Power Play automatically increases non-jackpot prizes. The match five prize is usually $1 million but the Power Play option boosts it to $2 million. Power Play is an additional $1 per wager.
The winning ticket was sold at Eureka Gas & Food, located at 13936 Eureka in Southgate.
