The St. Louis Powerball player got lucky on Friday the 13th

ST. LOUIS – Friday the 13th isn’t usually associated with luck, but one lucky St. Louis Poweball player won $100,000 when he decided to play that day. The winning ticket was purchased from Joel’s Benton Park BP in St. Louis, 1815 Arsenal.

“I think 13 is a lucky number for me,” said the Missouri Lottery winner. He bought the ticket on Friday January 13th for the drawing the following day.

In the January 14 draw, his lucky ticket matched four of the five white ball numbers plus the Powerball to win a $50,000 jackpot. The odds of this happening are about one in 913,129. Because he added Power Play to his ticket, the prize was immediately increased to $100,000 when the Power Play number was drawn.

“I thought I won $200,” said the winner. “I went to where I bought the ticket and when I scanned it it said ‘Claim at Lottery Office’.”

“The guy who was working scanned it for me and he was like, ‘Oh my God! You just won $100,000!’” he shared. “He was more excited than me!”

The winning numbers for the January 14 draw were 24, 26, 39, 47 and 57 with a Powerball of 23. The winner explained that he used Quick Pick to pick his five numbers but chose the Powerball number himself.

Tonight’s Powerball prize is expected to be $526 million. If the Powerball jackpot is won, the “Jackpot Reset” offer will be introduced, offering a free $2 Powerball ticket to players who purchase three Powerball games on a single ticket. The St. Louis Powerball player got lucky on Friday the 13th
