A man by the name of Willie Nelson, no, not the famous singer, kept a US Powerball ticket worth a staggering $110 million in his car for three days before getting around to check it. Little did he know, that his ticket landed the big-daddy US Powerball jackpot in the August 1st lotto draw. Read further for all the juicy details.
Willie is retired and has been married to the same lovely lady for 38 years. Seeing that their marriage has lasted so long, he is very used to running around and doing errands for his wife. (As we all should, a happy wife is a happy life.)
On the 1st of August, she asked him to run out and buy some bacon from the Choice Market. Willie did so, but as soon as he got back to his car, he was reminded of an old US Powerball lottery ticket that was still sitting in his car waiting to be checked. He took the ticket back to the store before leaving in order to check it at the counter. Unfortunately, that ticket was a loser. Feeling disappointed, Willie returned to his car, but then something very interesting happened next. You could say it was divine inspiration…
“Something inside of me told me to buy another ticket,” explained Willie. He went back to the store and bought a Quick Pick ticket for that evening’s Powerball drawing.
Again, that Powerball ticket remained in his car until the 4th of August until a friend ended up telling him that the $110 million winning Powerball ticket was sold at the Choice Market near to where they live. Incredibly, he was in fact the winner of the jackpot. When the reality had sunk in, he fell on the floor and began screaming with happiness. His friend thought he was having a heart attack at first but Nelson then assured him: “No, I just won $110 million!” The whole scene was like something out of a comedy film.
You see? Running errands could actually have the potential of winning you some big lottery prizes. It was just this week that John Rumper, from Milwaukee, managed to win a $22.2 million Megabucks jackpot due to him having to run out to get some milk for his wife.
Willie Nelson plans on seeing the world. He said he particularly wants to visit Africa and Australia to take in all the natural beauty and view the exquisite wildlife. Similar to fellow Californian Pablo Bringas who won $750,000 in April and bought himself a shiny Corvette, Willie Nelson also has his eyes set on a new car, but not just any ordinary one.
“I saw a Studebaker I want. I think it was a ’47,” he shared. Willie Nelson’s winning numbers were the following: 07-13-24-49-57 and the Powerball number of 15.
If Willie Nelson can win his millions based on a simple decision with the attitude of YES, then so can you.

Your fortune is calling out to you, are you going to answer?
