A series of stunning successes have hit the headlines in recent weeks.
Leonard Linton, 42, has put his $2million win down to his pet dachshund.
He won the prize on the 100X The Cash scratch-off game after buying the winning ticket from a Stop & Shop.
He said he received a call saying his dog Ivy wasn’t feeling well, so he raced to see her as quickly as possible.
He took a different route on the drive home and made a pit stop at the store where he bought the winning ticket.
Linton chose to receive his winnings in the form of a one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,645,000.
The game costs $10 and the overall odds of winning a prize are 1-in-3.44.
The 50-year-old matched four numbers and had the Powerball in the May 14, 2022, draw.
Just five minutes before the deadline to buy tickets, he logged onto his lottery account and purchased one.
Salem said: "A few days later, I was going through some old emails and saw one from the Lottery that said I needed to log in to claim a prize."
He would've scooped up $50,000 but he bought the Power Play that saw his prize tripled.
The Powerball draw takes place every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, and the jackpot currently stands at $210million.
And, a woman, 54, scooped $4million on the lottery after a stranger's chillingly accurate prediction came true.
The player, who hasn't been identified, bought an Ultimate Millions ticket while she and her husband were getting fuel for the car.
While she was in the line, a stranger eerily predicted she would win the amount if she bought a ticket.
