We Did It Before. Will DC Do It Again? “POWERBALL First Millionaire of The Year” Promotion Returns
WASHINGTON, DC – The Powerball First Millionaire of the Year® promotion returns! Through September 30, 2023, DC Lottery players have two ways to enter to become one of five finalists to travel to New York City and have the chance to win $1 MILLION in a special drawing broadcast live on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2024.” The “Powerball First Millionaire of the Year” winner will be announced just after midnight EST in Times Square.
“In 2021, the DC Lottery celebrated local man Carlos Mabry as the Powerball First Millionaire of the Year,” said Director of Marketing Jayre Reaves. “When Carlos was chosen as a finalist and on his way to New York City for the final drawing, he proclaimed that he was ‘Doing it for DC.’ It was an exciting time for him, our players, and the DC Lottery. We’d love to celebrate another winner and do it all over again!”
