Uruguayan Player Wins $1 Million With the US Powerball


Imagine this: It's a random Tuesday morning and you wake up to discover that you are a millionaire. Well, this is exactly what happened to Jorge on 26 September 2023, the morning after the lottery draw that changed his life. Our lucky Uruguayan player decided to try his luck playing US Powerball online through theLotter Group, and to his surprise, he won an incredible $1 million secondary prize!



Making the difference

When the theLotter Group team gave him the good news, Jorge explained that he chose to play with our platform because lottery prizes in Uruguay are small and they rarely change people's lives. With his new million-dollar prize, Jorge, who works in the real estate construction sector, plans to buy two or three rental apartments and continue working with greater peace of mind and financial freedom.



"I just hope I haven't spent all my life's luck today!"


Lucky numbers work!

What makes this story even more interesting is that this lucky winner from Montevideo has been using the same lucky numbers for years, whether he’s playing Powerball or Mega Millions. All of Jorge’s numbers are related to his child’s birthday, including the date and time of birth and even the birth weight!


The numbers chosen by Jorge: 10, 12, 22, 36, 50 and 1


The winning numbers: 10, 12, 22, 36, 50 and 4


Jorge mentioned that all he was missing was the red Powerball number that would have won him the jackpot prize and that he would continue playing to win it. “I just hope I haven't spent all my life's luck today!” he said jokingly. Joking or not, one thing is certain: If Jorge had matched the additional number, his prize would have been nothing more and nothing less than $835 million - a very extraordinary amount! Either way, nothing can tarnish the taste of victory, and $1 million ($620,000 after taxes) is a very big victory indeed!



"theLotter Group was great. Politically speaking, I think it is democratic that they allow us to play lotteries from other countries from here."



The million-dollar opportunity

theLotter Group values its customers and is always eager to hear about their experience on the platform. We asked the winner for his opinion on our service, and he was full of nothing but praise. He described the "great" and "democratic" opportunity that theLotter Group offers people outside of Europe and the US to participate in the biggest lotteries in the world from the comfort of their homes - and he doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon!



"I couldn't believe it because at first I thought I had won $620. When I saw the email, I realized it was $620,000 and then I called my wife and she was even more excited than me!"


If you don't play, you'll never win!

theLotter Group is one of the most visited lottery sites in the world, both for the incredible jackpot prizes it offers and its enormous portfolio of winners, in which Latinos stand out in a special way with prizes that have already reached $30 million! Luck smiled upon this man from Uruguay and rewarded him with $1 million. Will fortune continue to turn ordinary players into millionaires? One thing is certain: if you don't buy a ticket, lottery luck will never be on your side.
