Lucky ‘Mona’ Power Plays Her Way to $100,000 Powerball Prize

Lucky “Mona” wins $100,000 on a $3 Powerball ticket with the Power Play feature.

Howard County resident finds third-tier win

A lucky Ellicott City woman who goes by the nickname of “Mona” is celebrating a major Powerball win in the Jan. 10 drawing.

The 41-year-old matched four white balls and the Powerball for a $50,000 prize. However, her decision to add Power Play to the ticket for an extra $1 means she won $100,000.

“Mona” visited Harford County gas station Hanson Mystic, located at 1713 Hanson Road in Edgewood, to buy her lucky $3 ticket. Her personal set of numbers came through with the big win!

Our anonymous Howard County player was one of two Marylanders who won third-tier prizes with Power Play added for the drawing. No one won the jackpot in the Jan. 10 drawing or those that followed so the jackpot rolled to $104 million for the Saturday, Jan. 29 drawing. The cash option is $72.5 million.

This is our seventh third-tier Powerball prize won in Maryland in 2022.
