The $246 million Powerball lottery jackpot was won by a single ticket in Georgia. They only entered one combination of lucky numbers, which just goes to show that as long as you have entered the game, you stand a chance of winning big, even if you only play once!
The winning Powerball lottery ticket was won by a lucky couple in Georgia. They bought the winning ticket from a grocery store while they were doing their monthly shopping errands. They actually almost forgot to buy a Powerball ticket because they were so focused on their task at hand.
William and Heather ten Broeke, the pair who won $246 million, mentioned to lottery officials that the last item on their grocery list was a Powerball ticket for the big draw, but they had forgotten and were almost on their way out of the store until Heather remembered and nudged her husband to get one before they left without one.
“Without her reminding me to buy the ticket, we wouldn’t have won!” exclaimed William. When they reached lottery headquarters in Georgia, they chose to receive their winnings as a cash option instead of taking the annuity payments option. Before tax, they received $165,613,511.
William and Heather said that they discovered they were jackpot winners a few days after the draw. It dawned on them that they could be the winners everyone was looking for because the local news reported that a winning ticket was sold at the same store they bought theirs from. “We were shocked. We couldn’t believe it. We checked the numbers numerous times,” said Heather.
The Powerball winners live in Atlanta and have been happily married for five years. They have a child and a dog together. William and Heather said that they want to use their winnings to travel, and invest some of it too for their future.
If you want to experience the same tremendous fortune of this Georgian couple, then get your tickets for the next Powerball draw now! The next jackpot is €236 million and it’s taking place on the 12th of November.
