Despite claiming the largest prize in Texas Lottery history, Katy resident William R Kiefer wants no part of fame or fortune. This humble Texan only has three plans: retire, donate to worthy causes and encourage others to do the same. “The greatest gift my parents gave me was to be raised a Christian,” said Kiefer. “I plan to give 60 percent of all after-tax winnings to charity.” What a great fellow. Congrats to this lucky Texas player!
The jackpot in America’s favorite lottery game continues to get bigger and bigger exciting players across the country! Even though the grand prize was not awarded Saturday evening, a lucky ticket in Wisconsin matched all 5 white numbers with the Power Play and won $1 million cash! Four other tickets throughout the States matched 5 white balls and won $200,000 cash each. In addition, 630,711 tickets across the nation won a total of $6,665,011 in prizes.
Because no one correctly matched all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing the jackpot will grow to an estimated $40 million!
The cash option for the Wednesday, February 17th drawing will be an estimated $19.6 million.
