Marble Hill Residents Claim $200,000 Powerball Prize

Two people from Marble Hill have split a $200,000 Powerball prize, but one of them says he is “holding out for the big one.”  Jennings Bond and Barbara Trankle, both of Marble Hill, will each take half of the $200,000 prize from the July 10 Powerball drawing.  The winning ticket matched all five white-ball numbers which were:  20, 21, 27, 28 and 56.  A ticket sold in Florida also matched all five white-ball numbers plus the Powerball number of four to win the $73.8 million jackpot from that drawing. 
   
Bond bought the $5 Quick Pick ticket at Ross Minit Mart, 315 Presnell St., in Marble Hill.  The store received a bonus of $2,000 for selling the winning ticket. 
   
Powerball is a multi-lottery Numbers Game with jackpots that start at $20 million.  There are nine different ways to win cash prizes playing Powerball, and for an extra dollar at the time of purchase, players can add Power Play to multiply all prizes other than the jackpot by a Power Play number selected during the drawing.  Players who select Power Play and win the second prize of $200,000 will automatically win $1 million, regardless of the Power Play number drawn.
