First Powerball Winner of 2024 Revealed
The annual First Powerball Millionaire of the Year is a unique competition. It concludes with the announcement of a fortunate winner who will walk away with a grand prize of $1 million shortly after the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day.
Having debuted in the early moments of 2020, the promotion has become a highly anticipated tradition. In its inaugural year, a resident from Maine clinched the life-altering million-dollar reward. It adds an extra layer of excitement to the New Year festivities.
To determine the national finalists, 23 lotteries across the country will organize local competitions during the summer and fall of 2023. This led to the selection of semi-finalists. From this pool of state-level winners, five individuals will emerge as national finalists.
Among them, one lucky person will seize the title of Powerball’s first millionaire of the New Year.
