BEND, OR -- Bend has a new millionaire.
James McGinnis bought a lottery ticket at Binky’s for the September 16 Powerball drawing. He had the right numbers (17-18-24-25-31) but lost out on the $133 million dollar jackpot because he missed the Powerball of 24. However, because he spent an extra dollar on the "Power Play" option, McGinnis' one-million-dollar “second place” prize became $2 million.
A woman from Colorado won the September 16 jackpot of $133.2 million. She has used the same numbers for 30 years - the birthdays of her children and loved ones.
