And, we have our first of TWO $50,000 prize winners from the historic $1.5 Billion jackpot for the Powerball game held on January 13. The first to claim their prize is Daniel Obrien of Alexandria, VA who participated in a lottery pool with friends and colleagues. Daniel, pictured in the center was the point person for this activity and lead the group to victory with a serious game plan. “Next time, we want to hit ‘the big one,’ of course,” laughed Daniel. “But, this is fine. We had 16 people in the pool and no one’s complaining,” said Daniel who—following best practices for participating in a lottery pool—was sure to make copies of the tickets and actually calculated a percentage of each participant’s share on various wins. For this $50,000 win, the team’s ticket matched four of the winning numbers and the Powerball. Team work makes the dream work! Go, Team! This winning ticket was purchased at Press Liquors, 527 14th Street, NW.
