FULTON MAN WINS $5,000 POWERBALL PRIZE
A Fulton man is happy he decided to take a trip to Mexico to take his father out to dinner because he came away $5,000 richer. Robert Miller, 43, won $5,000 on March 27 when a ticket he bought at Breaktime MFA, 1411 W. Monroe in Mexico, matched four of the five white-ball numbers and the Powerball number to win the third-level prize.
Miller said he had traveled to Mexico to have dinner with his father and sister when he decided to stop at Breaktime to buy gas. While there he also bought a Powerball ticket.
Miller, who recently moved from New York, said he plans to use the money to pay bills and do some traveling. He let the computer pick the winning numbers on his ticket. The winning numbers from the March 27 drawing were: 15, 35, 40, 43 and 46. The Powerball number was 33.
