Danny Johnson added that his friend kept advising him to purchase the Powerball ticket when the prize reached historic levels. He tried his luck and bought the lottery ticket from the website.

“I looked at the winning numbers and said, ‘Hey I’ve got a few of those,'” Johnson recalled. “I didn’t know how much I’d won because I never play.”

He earned $50,000 prize after four numbers in the Powerball ticket matched. It increased to $150,000 thanks to the Power Play option.
