Player Calls $200,000 Powerball® Win “God’s Blessing!”

COLUMBIA, SC (May 30, 2010) – “I play $1 at a time, that’s it, and I’ve only played Powerball® a few times,” said Larry McCall, of Hanahan. His strategy paid off in a big way when five of his six Powerball® numbers matched in Wednesday night’s drawing earning him a $200,000 prize!
“This is God’s blessing,” McCall said. “The win could not have come at a better time.” The humble winner’s first thoughts were of his family. He’s been taking care of his elderly father, who lives in North Carolina, and his son who lives nearby. “Now I can help them even more,” McCall said.
The 63-year-old found out his numbers were winners after watching the live Powerball® drawing on television. He said he woke up his wife to tell her the good news, but she had a hard time believing him.
McCall purchased his Powerball® ticket at Kwik Fill in Hanahan. Now that the prize has been claimed, the store will receive a $2,000 retailer commission for having sold the winning ticket.
The winning numbers in the April 28 drawing were 12, 22, 25, 28 and 44. The red Powerball® was 24. The PowerPlay® multiplier was 4.
