A man from Minnesota who thoroughly enjoys playing the Powerball lottery has finally seen the fruits of his “luck harvest” ripen after he won $1 million. For years, this Powerball winner has made a living in a unique way, a way we don’t often hear about when it comes to Powerball players. Read further to hear his full story and what brought him luck.
The winner has made his living for years by making horseshoes. Horseshoes are seen to bring good luck, and finally, he saw that superstition
His name is Joseph Yanish and he lives just west of the Twin Cities in Litchfield, Minnesota. He earns a steady pay through the manufacturing of horseshoes and he’s done this for many years. One day, Joseph decided to buy a Powerball ticket on a whim last month. Thanks to that impulse purchase, he gave himself the chance to win a prize. You always have to be in it if you want to win it!
His lucky horseshoe charms brought him luck because all the right numbers on his ticket matched up with the winning Powerball numbers to yield a $1 million prize. He bought the Powerball ticket from a Casey’s General Store in a town called St. Cloud. When asked more details about his impulse purchase, he simply said, “I just had an extra couple of bucks and decided to buy two tickets at the last minute.”
He bought the ticket for the 14th of May, a week after the $429.6 million Powerball jackpot was won in New Jersey by Pearlie Smith. Joseph began to realise he was a winner a few days after the draw when he read that the St. Cloud store sold a winning Powerball ticket. “At that time, I was totally freaking out. My wife thought someone in my family had died!” explained Joseph about when he checked his ticket and saw the winning numbers.
Joseph and his wife, Erin, claimed their Powerball winnings from the lottery headquarters in Minnesota, Roseville. They said that they want to use their winnings to pay off debts, get rid of their mortgage, save up, and use the remaining money for travel.
Joseph’s winning ticket matched the numbers 13-27-47-64 and 65 in the May 14th draw. The only number he missed was the number 9.
