KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The winner of the $1 million Powerball jackpot drawn on November 28th has come forward to claim her prize.
Brenda Nolan is a full-time mother of three children. She purchased the winning ticket at the Sunfresh at 2415 N.E. Vivion Road in Kansas City.
Nolan said she chose the numbers herself, playing birth and anniversary dates. She actually bought two plays: one using special dates; and one using Quick Pick. The combination of special dates was the winner. Those numbers were: 5, 16, 22, 23 and 29.
Nolan said they will probably use the prize money to pay off their mortgage.
Nolan is one of two players in Missouri who matched all five white-ball numbers in the record Powerball jackpot drawing to win the $1 million second-level prize. The other ticket was purchased in Joplin and recently claimed by Terri Bullard of Joplin.
Half of the record $587.5 million jackpot was won by Missouri players Mark and Cindy Hill of Dearborn.
To date, 27 Missouri players have won Powerball jackpot prizes, and this year alone, 12 players in Missouri have won $1 million by matching all five white-ball numbers in Powerball.
