Someone in Sierra Vista has won a $100,000
Someone in Sierra Vista has won a $100,000 (ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLAR) POWERBALL prize. They matched four of five with the Powerball. That means they get fifty thousand dollars plus the power play, which equals one hundred thousand dollars. The announcement only said the winning ticket was purchased at a local Sierra Vista convivence store.
The drawing from January 28th is where the winning numbers were drawn.
Check your tickets; you may be sitting on a lot of money.
If you want to get in on the Sierra Vista action, the current Powerball is at an estimated $572 Million dollars (five hundred seventy-two million). The cash payout of that amount would be around $308 Million (three hundred and eight million).
Winning tickets are not claimed immediately for several reasons. 1) The winner has not checked their numbers and doesn’t know they have won yet. 2) Winners often “lawyer up” to ensure they collect the money the best way possible and all the taxes are handled correctly. 3) The winner wants to keep it a secret.
One thing is for sure; you are going to have a lot of new friends and find long-lost cousins. Whether you plan to invest, go on vacation, give to charity, or finally pay off those student loans, just remember, most people who win the lottery have spent it all within a year.
I hope you have a great time with your winnings.
