Nice consolation Powerball prize for Joplin woman

December 10th, 2012 in News

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - A Joplin woman didn't quite win the record Powerball windfall in the drawing on Nov. 28, but she gets a nice consolation prize.

The Missouri Lottery said Monday that 52-year-old Terri Bullard matched five white-ball numbers to win $1 million. Bullard purchased the ticket for the drawing at a Casey's General Store in Joplin.

Bullard's home was unaffected by the May 2011 tornado that devastated the southwest Missouri community.

The Missouri Lottery also announced that another $1 million Powerball winner in the Nov. 28 drawing was from a ticket sold in Kansas City. That person's name was not released.
