Power Play pays off for Bluffton band director
Two lucky Hoosiers know firsthand how Power Play can boost winnings. Both men said "yes" to Power Play and turned what would have been $10,000 prizes into $30,000 windfalls in last Wednesday's drawing. One of these men is James Bueter of Bluffton. The long-time teacher and Bluffton High School Band Director was one of the lucky winners who padded his winnings by adding the Power Play to his ticket for an extra $1 and happened to match four of the first five numbers,and the Powerball number, a feat with odds of 1 in nearly 650,000. It was a feat which earned him $30,000 in last Wednesday's Powerball drawing. James planned to take his wife and three kids out to dinner and "hopefully invest" his $30,000 winnings.
