Winburn's secret is that he plays the numbers corresponding to the letters in his last name. The odds of winning the $1 million jackpot are 1 in 5,153,632.65, and Winburn says prior to this he had never won more than $100 dollars with his set of numbers.
"I did a double-take," Winburn said of the moment he realized he had he won, "and told the guy next to me, 'I don't believe this,' and he leaned over and I did it again and he said, 'Sign it and get the hell out of here.'"
If Winburn had matched the Powerball by having a "3" in place of the "18", he would have won the $330 million jackpot.
