Lee's Summit Man Wins $1 Million Powerball Prize

A Lee’s Summit man just missed winning the Powerball jackpot, but walked away with a $1 million consolation prize. George Burke Jr. matched all five winning white-ball numbers in the June 13 Powerball drawing to win $1 million. He bought the winning ticket at Hy-Vee, 310 S.W. Ward Road, in Lee’s Summit. Hy-Vee received a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
   
Annuity options are only available on jackpot wins, so Burke got a single payment of $710,000 after taxes. He used Quick Pick to select his winning numbers, which were:  7, 10, 14, 33 and 57.
   
Powerball is a multi-lottery Draw Game with jackpots that start at $40 million. Tickets cost $2 a play, and for an extra $1, players can add Power Play to their ticket and increase any non-jackpot prizes. The Match 5 prize of $1 million becomes $2 million with Power Play.
