Katy resident claims $1 million Powerball prize


A Katy resident claimed a Powerball prize worth $1 million for the Oct. 31 drawing.

The claimant elected to remain anonymous, the Texas Lottery said in a news release. The claimant purchased the ticket at Annie Stop N Shop #1, at 6402 Airline Drive, in Houston.

The second-tier winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (13-19-36-39-59), but not the red Powerball number (13).

Powerball Grand Prizes currently start at $20 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Players win the Grand Prize by matching five numbers from a field of 69 numbers and one Powerball number from a field of 26 numbers. By choosing the Power Play for $1 more per play, players can multiply their non-Grand Prize winnings by two, three, four, five or 10 times. The 10X Power Play multiplier is available for drawings in which the initially advertised annuitized Grand Prize amount is $150 million or less.

A Power Play Match Five (5+0) is set at $2 million regardless of the Power Play number selected. All other non-Grand Prizes will be multiplied by the Power Play number selected.

Drawings are broadcast each Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:12 p.m. CT.

Since 1992, the Texas Lottery has generated $35.8 billion in revenue for the state and distributed $78 billion in prizes to lottery players. Since 1997, it has contributed $29.9 billion to the Foundation School Fund, which supports public education in Texas.

Certain Texas Lottery revenues benefit state programs including the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance.

Since the first veterans’ themed scratch ticket game was launched in 2009, the Texas Lottery has contributed more than $196 million for programs supporting Texas veterans.

The Texas Lottery provides several games for lottery players including Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto Texas, All or Nothing, Texas Two Step, Pick 3, Daily 4, Cash Five and scratch ticket games.
