Father and Son from Maryville Claim $1 Million Powerball Prize
Jack Canfield and his son Todd came forward on Tuesday to claim their prize in Nashville. They were just one number away from winning the jackpot, having matched all numbers except the Powerball in the drawing held last Saturday June 30.
The Winner is an Occasional Player
Jack Canfield lives in Maryville, Tennessee, and runs a commercial glass company together with his son Todd. From Saturday June 30 their life changed, having won a $1 million prize by matching the 5 white numbers of the Powerball.
These were the numbers drawn on June 30: 3-9-20-42-61 Powerball 24 - Powerplay 2x. You can check the full results and payouts here.
This is the 239th prize worth $1 million or more ever won in Tennessee. According to the state’s rules, any prize over $200,000 must be claimed at the lottery's headquarters, so on Tuesday the Canfields drove to Nashville to claim their prize.
Jack Canfield, who is an occasional player, said that he checked the Powerball numbers straight after the draw and realised he had won something, but didn’t know how much until he called his son. “I asked him to sit down,” said Todd, “Then I told him that the Powerball had just made him a millionaire.”
The winning Powerball ticket was purchased by Jack at E-Z Stop Food Mart on East Hunt Road in Maryville. The shop will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. Jack said that he doesn’t have a sure-fire plan on how he’ll spend his winnings yet, however his wish is to save and invest the money. Before that though, he wants to buy a new car for his wife.
