Of note, two of Jackpocket's users who were second-prize winners in Colorado and New York came extremely close to winning the $1.2 billion Powerball in the November 2 drawing. Their tickets matched all 5 white ball numbers but were just one digit away from matching the red Powerball. Their Powerball numbers were 24 and 22 respectively; the winning Powerball number drawn was 23.
