The 1.5 billion dollar Powerball prize has been claimed and if you weren’t one of the confirmed three winners that came out so far, have a great day a work today.
The winning tickets were sold in Chino Hills, CA, Flordia and Tennessee. While no one has been cleared yet for validity since the 11pm drawing last night, one guy took to Instagram to post his winning ticket just in case anyone “tried to jack him”. Smart? Probably not. That person was pro skateboarder Erik Bragg. While the picture looks legit, it hasn’t been confirmed yet by Lottery officials.
On Nobember 7, 2015 the Powerball stood at $40 million. Two drawings passed and there was still no winner, the pot reached a record high. According to Refinery 29, The Texas Lottery Board estimated that there was a 85.8% chance that the winning numbers would be sold. They were correct. So far there at 3 winners. We wonder if there are any more to come.
