After the legendary, record-breaking Powerball jackpot hit over $1.6 billion on the 13th of January, it comes as to no surprise that many new players were attracted to buying tickets. Even first time players. But who would have thought that even first time players got lucky? They did! Powerball jackpot hit over $1.6 billion on the 13th of January, it comes as to no surprise that many new players were attracted to buying tickets. Even first time players. But who would have thought that even first time players got lucky? They did!
One such player is Andrew Norberg and he is from New London in Connecticut, USA. He won the staggering sum of $1 million. Andrew is 29-years-old and is a first-time Powerball player. He said: “The jackpot had just gone over a billion dollars, so I figured I might as well buy a few tickets.” Wise decision indeed, for a win was soon to surprise him!
Andrew’s winning Powerball numbers were 4-8-19-27-34 with the Powerball 10. There were three other lucky ticket holders who each won themselves $1 million. However, it wasn’t until the day after the draw, while he was at his desk at work, that he checked his ticket and discovered he had achieved a huge win.

The player, knew to the Powerball game and its rules, didn’t realise that even if he didn’t match the Powerball too, he could still take home a wealthy consolation prize. He asked his friend about the odds of matching five numbers, and everyone immediately realised he had done just this. “A whole lot of hollering and hooting then broke out,” explained Andrew.
Andrew, now a recent Powerball millionaire, is a graduate and instructor at the Coast Guard Academy in new London. He said that a portion of his money is going to go towards funding his upcoming wedding in April this year.
Andrew isn’t the only first-ever Powerball player to have won for the first time, though. Another winner was Frederick Walker from Maryland, who won $2 million in the same Powerball draw as him. Andrew definitely chose the luckiest place to buy his lottery ticket from. Sully’s Mobil Mart has had some big successes in the last and has also recently sold a Lucky For Life $25,000 a year for life winning ticket. Before that big win, there was an even bigger win of $4.5 million on a single winning ticket.
