Like many children of elderly parents, they don’t enjoy going on errands. Jorge Solis-Cortes from Los Angeles did not enjoy errands, but he helped his father and it turned out to be the best decision he could have made after he won $866,060 with Powerball in the November 18th draw. Read his full story here.
The winner is 23-years-old and said that he will never forget the day that he drove his father to Nabor’s Meat Market at 8851 Hooper Avenue in South Los Angeles. It was while he was running errands with his father that they ended up buying lottery tickets. His father regularly buys lottery tickets on a Sunday, so he ended up buying two – one for him and his son.
For his father to have bought two tickets was unusual as he usually only buys one. Amazingly, the ticket which he gave to his son had the winning numbers that matched those of the winning Powerball jackpot set.
The winning USA Powerball numbers in the draw they entered for the 18th of November were:
If their ticket matched the extra Powerball number of 6, that means they would have won the massive $70 million jackpot! The store owner of the shop where they bought the winning ticket from is Graciela Medel and she hopes that the big win will help attract more business.
The winner’s father has returned to the store since their big win, but Graciela said, “We were more excited than he was. I think it was still taking a while to sink in for him.”
When lottery officials asked the happy winner about his emotions, he said, “I was just shocked. I couldn’t believe I won this amount of money. It’s a pretty big amount for somebody my age to win. It’s like wow!” Even despite his big win, Jorge says he still wants to continue his job as a beach parking attendant because he enjoys it.
He said that he has plans to use his Powerball winnings to change his life for the better. He wants to go back to school. He also said that he is going to make sure that his family is well taken care of.
The strangest things in life can sometimes lead to big wins, but what’s the moral of the story here? If you don’t play, then you don’t win.
So play now and you could change your fortune forever this very week.
The Powerball online jackpot currently has a jackpot of €120 million.
Best of luck!
