#powerball Cartersville man pulls lucky Powerball ticket worth $1M

March 22nd, 2016

A Cartersville man has claimed a lucky Powerball ticket worth $1 million. Sonny Nowell, 74, matched the first five winning numbers from the Feb. 20 Powerball drawing, winning a $1 million prize.

"I chose my own numbers," Nowell said. "It was nothing other than tracking numbers. I keep my own system."

Texaco Food Mart, located at 1401 West Ave. in Cartersville, sold the winning ticket.

Following the televised drawing, Nowell called the Georgia Lottery's Player Information Hot Line for the results.

"Then, I called again," he recalled. "It's real exciting. I wondered how I got that lucky."

Nowell and his wife, Dorothy, will celebrate their 53rd wedding anniversary in April. They have an adult daughter and two granddaughters.

"This is a great anniversary present," he shared. "Winning this prize will make life more enjoyable."
