Coming in second place is not such a bad deal if you’re a Powerball lottery player. That’s because the second prize in a recent drawing yielded one lucky Texas ticket holder an impressive $2 million.
While nobody won the top prize of an estimated $572 million for the drawing, the second-place prize meant a Powerball player in Texas would walk away a millionaire times two. According to the Texas State Lottery, for the Powerball drawing held on January 28, the winning 5 out of 5 ticket is worth $2 million.
While the initial prize amount was $1 million, the prize had a Power Play Match Five that boosted the final prize amount to a $2 million total. This is regardless of the Power Play number that might have been chosen. For more details on how the Power Play multiplier works, be sure to check out the prize chart for the Power Play option.
