Alas! We have some exciting news to share with you about the most recent Powerball winner to grace us in the lottery world. This lucky USA Powerball winner comes from Kansas and would go to the same shop twice a week to buy his lottery tickets. His lucky day finally came along when he won $1 million in the Powerball drawing that took place on the 2nd of September. Continue reading for the full details.
The lottery winner has chosen to stay anonymous for safety reasons. What we do know is that they come from Topeka in Kansas, and they matched all the main numbers in the Powerball draw. His winning lottery numbers were as follows:
The only number he missed out on to take home the massive jackpot was the Powerball number of 16. This passionate lottery player was determined to win, and so he did! Positive thinking is the key. Positivity, and of course always staying in the game.
The winner would go and buy lottery tickets every Monday at the Gas and Shop, located at 1900 NW Topeka Blvd. The winner would buy several lottery tickets at a time to increase his chances of winning – wise move!
On Thursday, he got around to checking his tickets. After checking them, he decides to go back to the store to buy another batch. On the 3rd of September, exactly a day after the Powerball drawing, he checked his Powerball tickets and received the kind of message he would never imagine seeing telling him the following: “Sign back of ticket. Claim at Lottery.” As you can imagine, the winner was very confused while scanning his ticket all over again. The message then came up again!
The Powerball winner didn’t want to get too ahead of himself and be disappointed later that he actually didn’t win, so, being unsure what to do, he went and asked the store clerk to check his ticket and when the clerk told him he’d won $1 million, all he could say was, “Holy cow!”
Unlike past EuroMillions winner Rachel Bingham from England, this Powerball winner had no problem at all signing the back of his ticket. After he signed it he hid it away safely in his wallet and didn’t mention his $1 million Powerball win to anyone.
How players decide to handle their win depends on the person. Everyone is different and handles their win differently. Keeping a lottery win a secret also isn’t uncommon. Pablo Chavez from California, for example, didn’t tell his wife about his $1 million scratch card until it was the perfect moment.
The Powerball winner works as a stick welder and says that his best win he managed to have before this big break was just $50. He wants to use his winnings to pay off his mortgage and close some bills he owes. Paying bills off is exactly what a $100,000 jackpot winner from Australia did with her winnings. A past €10.6 million Irish Lottery syndicate also used their money to pay off their mortgages.
The winner shared with lottery officials that he is planning on saving the rest of his winnings left over, and even went further to say that this won’t be his last win. Confidence! We like it. He said that he doesn’t intend to stop playing the lottery and joked, “Maybe I’ll get lucky again.”
What’s wrong with being confident? Winning twice can happen, and it has happened before! David and Kathleen Long from England won the staggering amount of £1 million by playing the EuroMillions lotto and carried on playing until they won another £1-million prize just two years later!
