What is worse than someone missing out on a $1 million prize? Two people missing out on $1 million each. The Michigan Powerball drawing of October 29, 2022 sold two tickets matching all five white ball numbers, but not the red Powerball number. Each of these won the second prize of $1 million. 

Who were the lucky winners? 

We don’t know, as no one has claimed either ticket. As of this writing, both drawings are listed on the Michigan Lottery Unclaimed Prizes webpage. 

Although it seems likely that there are two separate winning individuals, it is possible that one person purchased both tickets. The locations are on opposite sides of Michigan, so it would have involved some effort. But stranger things have happened. 

How long do the winners have to claim their prizes? 

According to the Michigan Lottery page linked above, both tickets from the October 29, 2022 Powerball drawing will expire on 10/30/2023 at 4:45 PM. 

Where were the winning tickets sold? 

One was sold at a Michigan liquor store, Billy’s Liquor Depot #2. The location is shown on the first map below. 

The other winning ticket was sold at a gas station in Michigan, Shell #1725. The second map below shows the location.

Does the Michigan Lottery provide online games?

They do indeed. This Michigan Lottery Games webpage lists them, with a variety of filtering options for ticket price, prize range, and game type. This form of play requires an online account, which you can create using the “Register” button at the top of any page on their website.

In fact, they are so enthusiastic about welcoming you to their world, if you click “Register,” then change your mind and click the “X” to close the form, you are met with an “ARE YOU SURE?” confirmation box. This helpful hint goes on to say:

“A chance to win big is waiting for you. Complete the registration to join the fun!”

I have been using the Internet since its beginning and I do not recall ever seeing this on a registration form.
