Indian student wins Powerball playing online!

Nirmal Dhamaodarasamy took home the second prize in the Powerball lottery giving him the enormous prize amount of $1 000 000 US dollars.

Winning more than 7 crores is life-changing, to say the least. Dhamodarasamy was a graduate student studying abroad at the University of Illinois at Chicago when he received his big win. Even though he could buy physical tickets in the state he decided to play online saying it was easier and faster.

He chose to buy a subscription using the quick pick option to get random numbers. A stroke of luck came the same day he won the same day he bought the subscription!

He had gotten an email notifying him of his win instantly as the draw took place but he already knew since he had already checked on a Powerball results website like this one. He could not believe his good fortunes when his numbers 04-13-31-26-52 had been drawn.

Even though he missed his Powerball number 08 he was still ecstatic! “My heart started racing when I realized I had the won Powerball lottery. I still can’t believe I won a million dollars!” was his answer when he was asked how he felt about winning.

When asked why he had started to play online he said the answer was simple. The historic jackpot of $1.5 billion got him interested and the ease of playing online made him purchase Powerball tickets.

As he was finishing his master’s degree in Industrial Engineering he decided the first thing he was going to spend his prize money on was plane tickets and hotel for his family in India so they could attend his graduation.

Being able to share your new riches with your family is just one of the many benefits international lottery winners from India can enjoy!
