$150k MI online Powerball winner
In Michigan, a Grand Blanc resident named Ken Belcher managed to win a hefty $150,000 prize. Moreover, the win was a result of an online subscription.
Basically, online lottery players purchase a subscription. Then you can select how many tickets you want to purchase. And you can even choose your numbers and optional add-ons such as the Power Play. In MI, subscriptions renew weekly, but you can cancel at any time.
In Belcher’s win, he matched four of the five white balls for the Feb. 27 drawing. Normally, the prize is $50,000. Yet, he opted to purchase the $1 Power Play which boosted his winnings to $150,000.
Belcher said, “I like to play Club Keno and one day when I was checking my numbers, I decided to buy a subscription for Powerball. I hit the $150,000 on the next drawing, so I got in at just the right time.”
The right time, indeed!
