NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– At least three people overcame those extraordinary odds to land the winning numbers in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing.
Those winning numbers are 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10.
Many of us dreamed of waking up in the morning as a multimillionaire. But unfortunately, that only happened for a few lucky people. Very lucky people. The winning tickets were sold in California, Tennessee and Florida.
In fact dozens of people gathered Wednesday night in suburban Los Angeles outside the store where the winning ticket was sold. But not all is lost if you bought your ticket here in Connecticut. Three people in the state won $1 million. And more than 350,000 other people in our state won prizes ranging from $4 to $100,000.
There’s been a great of excitement building in recent weeks surrounding this constantly growing jackpot. It started as $40 million and went from there since nobody was winning. The odds were stacked against all of us. A 1 in 292 million chance of winning.
But for many people, it was a dream. A chance to stop and think what you could do with all that money.
I’m happy to report I got the Powerball so I won $4. Better than nothing I suppose. Again, check your tickets because you may have still won something.
