HUDSON, N.H., July 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- William Metzger, a Hudson, New Hampshire resident, won a $1 million Powerball prize last week by playing the lottery on Jackpocket, the first officially licensed third-party lottery app in the U.S. With his win, William becomes the first million dollar winner on the Jackpocket app in New Hampshire and the fifth-ever million dollar or more winner on the app.
