Christmas double: Powerball ($125M), Lotto ($50M) hit


It's becoming a Christmas tradition for Powerball: Someone has a very happy holiday.

Powerball, the lottery game played in 42 states, produced a single winner from Saturday night's drawing. Whoever bought a ticket, sold in Maryland, with the numbers 14-16-30-51-52 and a Powerball of 19 has won $125 million.

Last year, a New York couple that had been married for 30 years won $48 million on a Dec. 25 drawing.

Meanwhile, the Florida Lotto, which had been dry for three months produced one winner of $50 million. The numbers were 2-11-15-19-24-26, and the ticket was sold in Tallahassee.

It's the biggest Lotto score since April 2010.

About the author
Maybe you've made the right play, maybe you haven't. Your heart speeds up, your stomach rumbles.

That's why it's called gambling.

ACTION is a view of the numbers, the psychology and the flavor of gambling here in South Florida, through our lens.

We do have one sure bet. There's something here for you.

NICK SORTAL began playing 3-card "gut" and "Indian poker" on high school band trips, moved on to "night baseball" and "pass the trash" during a Dr. Pepper-infused midnight game in the 1980s at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and now play in a regular neighborhood Hold 'Em game in Plantation. I have been given the assignment of writing about the gambling life in South Florida casinos for the Sun-Sentinel...which means sitting around watching poker on TV now counts as research.
