LUCKY STREAK FOR POWERBALL WINNER MUNCIE MEADE
Mead said, “I bought a $10 scratch-off ticket last week and won $250. I took my winnings and bought a Powerball quick pick ticket.” It was this quick pick lottery ticket which made Muncie the winner of the Powerball jackpot on 11th December 2010.
Mead describes how he discovered he had the winning Powerball numbers, “I got up Sunday morning, and while I was still in bed, I opened my laptop and checked the lottery’s website to see the winning numbers. I kept looking at the screen and at my ticket, and I couldn’t believe what I saw.”
You can see whether any of Muncie’s numbers are amongst the most and least drawn numbers from previous draws by visiting our Powerball numbers statistics section.
The first person Muncie Mead told, was his 24 year old fiancée, Allyson McCormack. “I thought he was joking,” she said, “I kept looking at the date and at the Powerball winning numbers. People talk about how your chances of winning are like getting hit by lightening, and I couldn’t believe what was happening.”
