I logged into Facebook this evening and noticed several people had shared an image posted by a Nolan Daniels, in which he appears to be holding up a winning Powerball ticket.
The comment below reads “Looks like I won’t be going to work EVER!!!! Share this photo and I will give a random person 1 million dollars!”.
At first glance, nothing seems unusual. A regular guy is over the moon with his share of the $587 million jackpot and wants to share the wealth. ..
Early reports suggest that there were two winning tickets. The first has been tracked back to a man & wife in Missouri but the other winner, who bought their ticket in Arizona, is yet to be identified.
Is it possible that Nolan Daniels (Facebook link) is this man?
A quick look at the official Powerball website shows that winning numbers are printed in ascending order. However Nolan Daniel’s “winning Powerball ticket” shows numbers going from biggest to smallest.
So, if you are one of the 265,000 people who has already shared his photo, I regret to inform you there will be no $1m prize for doing so. Looks like we’re all in the office on Monday…..
