Stratford Resident Plays Father's Old Roulette Numbers and Wins $50,000 Powerball PrizeIt was the day before Dana Pniewski’s payday and the Stratford resident, who rarely carries cash anymore, had just enough cash in her wallet to buy two $2 Powerball® tickets to get in on the colossal $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot drawing for Nov. 7. One of the two tickets she purchased from the Stratford Cigar & Smoke Shop in Stratford were played with her father’s old roulette numbers.
When the winning Powerball numbers 10 - 33 - 41 - 47 - 56 and Powerball 10 were announced after the drawing occurred, Dana said he knew she won something, because she definitely had two 10’s on her ticket.
“I called home to double-check the winning numbers and got confused because I thought my own numbers were being repeated back to me. That’s when I realized I had matched four numbers and the Powerball—I won $50,000!”
Dana said the unexpected prize win will be a huge help financially. It will be used to pay off her bills and the rest will be put away as an investment.
The overall odds of Powerball or Powerball with Power Play are 1 in 24.9. Jackpot odds are 1 in 292,201,338.
