LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Powerball winning numbers for October 2, 2013 have just been revealed. But did results tonight produce a big winner? Several draws have passed with no one correctly selecting all the right numbers. But tonight that could change. The Powerball winning numbers results tonight for 10-2-2013 are 4, 6, 25, 42, 51, Powerball: 17.
Tonight’s October 2, 2013 draw was not the largest in recent weeks. But the draw has been running up progressively. Last night produced a big winner in the Mega Millions draw. And several weeks ago, the same occurred with Powerball. But did anyone correctly select the winning numbers tonight 10-2-13?
Ten years ago this month, Regina Mandabach bought one of two winning Powerball tickets. She would split $190.9 million. At the time, it was the sixth largest Powerball jackpot in history.
Like other Powerball winners, she first heard news that she might have won from a television report. The report said that someone in her town had won the game. She watched the news reporters feature the store where she bought her ticket. “They showed the Shell where I bought my ticket so I checked my numbers. I called the other Shell to check the numbers again. All I could think was ‘I’m Rich!’”
She later told news “I ran to my parents house and scared them because I pounded on the door, and when they opened it I was out of breath and my face was white. I finally got it out that ‘I won Powerball!’ This is unbelievable.”
At the time, it was tenth largest jackpot prize in the world and the second largest jackpot won in Indiana. For more results this week from Powerball and Mega Millions click HERE.
