Tampa’s $2 Million Powerball Win Sparks Excitement Across the Bay


Tampa Bay is buzzing with excitement as news breaks of a lucky resident scoring big in the latest Powerball drawing. Monday night’s winning numbers may not have clinched the jaw-dropping $645 million jackpot, but one fortunate Floridian is now celebrating a life-changing $2 million windfall, all thanks to a ticket purchased right here in Tampa!

While the $645 million jackpot remained elusive, the second-tier prize of $1 million was nabbed by a lucky shopper at the Stop & Save Food Store on 4801 Clewis Ave. What’s more, due to the Power Play option, the prize doubled to a staggering $2 million. Alongside this Tampa triumph, five $1 million tickets were claimed across Maryland, Minnesota, Virginia, and Texas.

Despite the anticipation of Wednesday’s drawing, where the jackpot is estimated to swell to a staggering $687 million, Tampa’s recent win is a testament to the electrifying allure of Powerball. With the chance to opt for either a lump sum payout or a 30-year installment plan, winners across the nation are eagerly eyeing their ticket numbers. While federal taxes and state deductions may chip away at the final sum, the dream of striking it rich remains alive and well.

The thrill of the Powerball jackpot continues to captivate players across the nation, with millions eagerly tuning in to the live drawing every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m ET. Despite the astronomical odds of one in 292.2 million, the allure of that life-changing jackpot keeps players coming back for more, their eyes glued to those elusive numbers, hoping for that winning combination.
