Playing Powerball "birthday" numbers presents a winning ticketChristine Doyle of Kensington said she usually plays Powerball when the jackpot is high. When she does, she like to pick her numbers taken from family birthdays. On Jan. 25, Christine matched 4 of the winning numbers drawn, plus the Powerball number and won $50,000. "My husband went to get tickets for Mega Millions and while he when he was there, he checked our Powerball ticket, Christine said. "After checking it two or three more times, he came home and we checked the numbers again together. This (prize) is going in the bank!"
