Anyone who gambles for real money is looking to win big no matter how they play. Slots are still the main attraction at land-based and online casinos. Progressive jackpots can grow into high six-figure and low seven-figure payouts.
The ultimate jackpot in the past several years has been the daily lottery. Years ago, small winnings could be made betting the daily number. Many states started adding their own multi-number lottery drawings to increase the potential wins. When lottery options such as Powerball and Mega Millions went national, the jackpots reached astronomical levels.
Which Casino Sold The Winning Powerball Lottery Ticket?
Earlier this month, one lucky player laid claim to a $150 million Powerball jackpot with the sole winning ticket. The story was covered by a local Nevada ABC affiliate www.kolotv.com. The Gold Ranch Casino and RV Resort resides in a border town crossing both California and Nevada. The casino portion of the property is in Nevada while the lottery sales are on the California side.
This Lucky Winner Will Take Home $60 Million?
The lucky winner will walk away with $60 million if they select the upfront cash option after all taxes. This was according to the California Lottery website. While the actual winner has yet to be identified, they also have the option to collect the full jackpot amount over 30 years.
The winner matched all five numbers plus the Powerball. The odds involved to win were 1 in 292,201,338. That is when you know that Lady Luck was on your side. The winning ticket just for the record was 3-23-32-37-58 with a Powerball of 22. From the date of the actual drawing, the winner has one year to claim their prize.
Gold Ranch as the location selling the winning ticket simply added, “one incredibly lucky person” bought the winning Powerball ticket.
The casino also claimed to be one of the busiest lottery locations in California. It is definitely one of the luckiest. Past jackpots on lottery sales prove that point. Back on Dec. 16, 2016, one lucky customer came away with a $122,781 winning ticket. On Jan. 28 of 2017, Gold Ranch sold a $340,982 lottery jackpot winner.
The report also included details of a big jackpot winner earlier this year. Mario Ramos-Munoz bought a Powerball ticket for the June 22 drawing at Hallelujah Junction. He walked away with $2.3 million by matching all five numbers while missing the Powerball.
Powerball is currently available in 44 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Drawings are held weekly on Wednesday and Saturday night.
The Gold Ranch Casino and RV Resort is located in Verdi, Nevada. The property is part of the Truckee Gaming Group. That company also owns Pioneer Crossing Casino-Restaurant-Saloon across three separate locations. It also owns and operates Club Fortune Casino in Henderson, Nevada.
The Gold Ranch location in Verdi is proudly advertising the $150 million Powerball win on the website’s home page. It is also advertising RV sites available for rent. The property is located off of I80 West at Exit 2 if traveling out that way.
