We all know the Merlin as the legendary wizard in the tale of King Arthur. Well, this story is about Merlyn, the Powerball winner who recently won $50,000. Read his full story here.
Merlyn Huedephl is from Williamsburg in Iowa, USA. He is celebrating his $50,000 win which happened in the Powerball draw on the 6th of Powerball. Merlyn’s winning Powerball ticket was so close to actually winning the jackpot, in fact! He matched four out of five main numbers. The winning numbers were:
5-25-26-44-66 and the Powerball 9.
The winning jackpot ticket came from New Jersey. Pearlie Smith was the sole winner of $429.6 million. Had Merlyn matched the number 26, he would have shared the jackpot with Pearlie!
Merlyn bought his winning Powerball ticket from Casey’s in Williamsburg. Unfortunately, when he got to the store, their computer wasn’t working, so he didn’t know what the Powerball results were. He was in the store to check a few tickets he had previously bought because he knew that one ticket he bought for himself on his birthday had produced a win for him. It was while he was there that he saw a notice that a $50,000 Powerball ticket had been sold there recently. The clerk jokingly said, “Now I hope you’re the $50,000 winner.” Merlyn was, in fact, the winner.
72-year-old Merlyn chuckled at the clerk’s words and thought he was just joking around, but it was the truth. The retired farmer and factory worker had just won with Powerball.
Merlyn rushed home to his wife, Diane, to tell her the news instead of going to visit his friends at his coffee group. At first, Diane was very worried that something was worried because he never misses his coffee group meet-ups. This is the latest Iowa Powerball win.
After telling his wife the good news, he went to his coffee meet-up and got plenty of suggestions from his friends on how to spend his winnings. He wants to continue playing Powerball and saving $50,000 wisely. Merlyn likes choosing Quick Pick tickets.
