Stars align for New Mexico million-dollar winner
On Feb. 11, E. Alakbarov of Albuquerque, NM had his wish granted. Alakbarov has a strong belief that if you see a falling star, you should make a wish. Imagine when he saw three green falling stars across the New Mexico night sky and made a wish to become a millionaire.
Shortly after, that wish came true with a $1 million Powerball winning ticket. While the drawing was for Jan. 23, Alakbarov did not check his ticket until a few weeks later. Often, he waits to check until bringing the tickets to a retailer.
At the retailer, the ticket flashed, “Go to Lottery headquarters.” Alakbarov thought at the time, the winner may be around a few hundred dollars. Therefore, he headed home to immediately check his numbers.
He stated, “At first, I didn’t even realize what was happening. I saw all the zeros and thought I won $1,000. Then, I realized there were six zeros and it was $1 million!”
Online lottery automatically notifies winners
However, there is a faster and even automatic way to be notified of winning lottery tickets by playing online. The PA online lottery not only notifies you of winning tickets, but in most cases, automatically pays out winners to your player account.
However, Pennsylvania is not the only state where online lottery tickets are sold:
- New York
- New Hampshire
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
Online or buying tickets through a physical retailer, we want to remind you to play responsibly.
