Many of us would buy a few outlandish things after winning $1 million with Powerball online. Well, Brian Delagardelle on the other hand, has his mind set on buying something different with his Powerball winnings. Read further to find out what he decided to buy with his windfall.
Brian comes from Jesup in Iowa, and has set his eyes on spending some of his Powerball winnings on a brand new tractor. That’s right…a tractor! Brian claimed his prize on the 17th of August after his ticket matched the five main balls in the Powerball drawing that took place on Saturday the 15th of August. Brian is the latest big winner in Iowa recently after William Clinton won $100,000 on a scratch card prize just last month.
Brian was keen on sharing a few details with us on how his winning experience played out. He bought his lucky Powerball ticket from the Pronto Convenience store in Washburn. Brian had been doing so for quite some time because back in the year 1988, a man called Michael Frost from Iowa bought a ticket that won him $2.7 million. Brian’s tradition paid off because he too is now celebrating a massive lottery win from the very same place Michael won his millions.
The day after the draw happened, the 55-year-old winner checked his Powerball online results on his smartphone and noticed he had matched five main numbers in his set of lucky numbers. Initially, like many other players, he thought that he had just won $100,000. It was early, 6am, and he called his girlfriend Michele Smith telling her the news and asking her to double-check what he was seeing. Michele thought something was wrong because he was calling her so early in the morning, but she went over and double-checked the ticket with him. She confirmed that he had won, but corrected him on the size of his win. Brian had actually fact $1 million with Powerball.
Brian is a public works director for his city of Gilbertville and recently had a chat with his accountant on advice before claiming his prize. He has plans to pay off his debts and put most of his winnings toward retiring, along with the tractor he has been really interested in buying.
Similar to Jane Lewis from England, Brian chose to buy something out of the ordinary. Jane went out and bought slippers with her winnings. Brian says, “Believe it or not, I’m looking at a tractor. I’ve got a car, I’ve got a Jeep…I’m set for new vehicles.”
Brian’s winning Powerball numbers were as follows:
Brian missed out on the Powerball number of 24. If he had matched this number, he would have won $70 million!
