 $2M Powerball Winner Sends Daughter To College

Coming into a large sum of money can be a tremendous blessing. All the things you’ve dreamed of doing, you can finally do without anything holding you back. Money doesn’t necessarily have to buy you complete happiness, but it can open many doors for you that were previously closed. This article is about how a man from Virginia won $2 million with the USA Powerball, and can now fulfill his dream of sending his daughter to college. Read the full story here. 

The winner is a single dad from Craig County in Virginia, USA. Bill Aliff is celebrating this week after winning $2 million on the USA Powerball game after landing in the second prize tier. He said that after this win, his life has completely changed in just a few days. Bill Aliff bought his lucky tickets for the draw on the 19th of September, Saturday. Bill said that when choosing his lucky numbers, he didn’t choose them in the most conventional way.

Be unconventional

Many players usually choose the Quick Pick ticket option, and a lot of winners have won that way, but not Bill. He chose not to buy a Quick Pick ticket or choose to pick top numbers that meant something to him. Instead, he closed his eyes while at the lottery machine and tapped the numbers blindly. 

“I closed my eyes and just punched the numbers on the screen without looking at them,” he told lottery officials. “What numbers I pick is what I pick,” said the lottery winner. Bill hopes to be as lucky as another Virginia player who won three $1 million lottery prizes with Powerball in the same draw! 

The new Powerball multi-millionaire is no stranger to playing the lottery because he has been a regular player for ten years trying to strike it lucky. Bill told lottery officials: “I figure I spent $1,500 the last ten years playing, so I guess it paid off.” The sales manager of Virginia Lottery, Ken Buckley, said that Bill’s way of choosing numbers is unconventional, but it really impressed and shocked everyone that that’s how he won!

The store also gets a little something after selling the winning ticket. They will receive a prize worth $10,000 and the shop’s co-owner Mike Carper, said that as soon as their money reaches their bank account it will be shared between the employees in the form of a bonus salary. This is very generous and the first time we’ve heard of a store sharing the bonus with employees. 

Bill Aliff will be spending his winnings on making sure that his family is well taken care of. “The main thing is to help my parents, make sure my girl goes to college. And the rest? I don’t know yet,” said Bill. 

Family First

He wants to take his time making big decisions on what to spend the rest of his winnings on. And with good reason, because money that big doesn’t come around every day. 

Bill bought his parents a house and made sure that his father was very comfortable because he is currently battling cancer. When asked if he was going to stop playing the lottery, Bill said, “No ways.” He really feels like this win is going to make him even luckier. 

The Powerball online has rolled over to a whopping 236 million Euro! This kind of money doesn’t come around often, so get rid of all your doubts and regrets and play lotto online today. 

The only way to win is to play.
