According to WMTW, Howland's Blaine Marston was the first $1 million Powerball winner.

Marston was one of 300 Powerball players, fifteen of which were from Maine, who won trips to NYC.  On top of that, he was selected as one of five finalists given a chance to win $1 million.

Just after the ball dropped, he was selected as the winner.
