Oregon Man Misses Powerball by 1 Number, Still Wins $2 Million
A man from Grant Pass just missed the last Powerball jackpot by only one number but still won $2 million!
Ronald Ceci bought his ticket for the Dec. 30 drawing and didn't check until the next Wednesday. He had left it in his sun visor and when the clerk scanned the ticket, Ceci said the clerk was more excited then he was.
"He was very excited and shaking," Ceci said. "He gave my wife a hug and was shaking like a leaf."
Ceci bought his lucky Powerball ticket like he does every week at the Lil' Pantry Market & Deli in Merlin. The store that sold the ticket will get a 1-percent selling bonus ( $20,000) that will be used to give bonuses to employees and to make improvements to the store.
This Saturday's ticket will be worth an estimated $570 million. Better get your ticket!
