Colorado Springs winner keeps mum on plans for newfound fortune

Greg S. of Colorado Springs won $2,000,000 on his Powerball ticket! Greg is a native of Colorado but didn’t want to share any more details about himself or his plans for his new fortune just yet. Greg used Quick Pick to choose his winning numbers (27-35-41-56-60) and matched all five. He only missed the big jackpot by one number, the Powerball (16). The winning amount for matching five numbers is usually $1 million but Greg doubled his winnings and made an extra $1 million by adding Power Play! Greg purchased his winning ticket at Circle K at 5553 Austin Bluffs Parkway in Colorado Springs. Congratulations, Greg!
