Welcome to the DC Lottery's Millionaires Club, Eric!



Eric Semasa Mele of Virginia has claimed the $1 million POWERBALL win for the game played Wednesday, August 11. This winning ticket was sold at Northwest Auto Repair & Valero Gas, 5420 New Hampshire Avenue, NW. A language learning educator, Mele intends to invest in his business and secure his family’s future with his life-changing win. This is the DC Lottery’s SECOND $1 million POWERBALL win of 2021! The first was on New Year’s Day, when Carlos Mabry of Washington, DC learned of his $1 million win with POWERBALL’s First Millionaire of the Year promotion live on-air along with millions of viewers watching ABC’s broadcast of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2021.”
