Michigan Lottery Celebrates First $1 Million Online Powerball Winner with Free Online Play Offer

PowerBall_Winner_facebookThe Michigan Lottery is celebrating an Onsted woman’s historic $1 million online Powerball win with a special free play offer.

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, the Lottery is offering a promo code good for $5 in free play to new online players. The special offer promo code will be available for a limited time at MichiganLottery.com. To take advantage of this special offer, players should visit MichiganLottery.com Tuesday.

Tammy Weadock won a $1 million Powerball prize after her ticket matched the five white balls drawn – 03-15-29-54-57 – in the July 13 drawing.

Weadock is the second player to win a $1 million prize through the Lottery’s online game platform. Last year, Pamela Rawson, of Allegan County, won $1 million playing the online instant game Diamond Payout. In 2015, Lottery players won about $127.7 million playing games online.

Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot stands at $422 million. The cash option for the jackpot is about $291 million.

If a Michigan player wins Wednesday’s $422 million jackpot, it would be the largest Powerball prize won in the state. On Aug. 15, 2012, Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won a $337 million Powerball jackpot. Lawson’s jackpot holds the record for the largest Lottery prize ever won in Michigan.

Powerball has been a lucrative game for Michigan Lottery players in 2016. Ten Michigan players, including Weadock, have won the game’s $1 million prize.

Players still have plenty of time to purchase tickets for a chance to win the big jackpot. Players may buy Powerball tickets for Wednesday’s drawing at Lottery retailers throughout the state and online at MichiganLottery.com until 9:45 p.m.

Powerball plays may be purchased for $2 each at Lottery retailers across the state and online at MichiganLottery.com. A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1.

The Powerball drawing takes place at 10:59 p.m. and may be watched live online at: http://www.powerballlive.com/powerball. Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, Washington D.C., U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
