The Powerball winner in this story is Lon Grail and he comes from Iowa, USA. Lon has an interesting story to tell regarding his win, because he did something he was nervous to do, and it actually ended up winning him a massive Powerball prize after consecutive draws with no luck.
Lon used to use the very same numbers in every draw, with no luck. He began to feel disheartened, so he decided to mix up his routine and change his numbers. He is now celebrating a wonderful $250,000 win in the Powerball draw that took place on the 23rd of April this month.
Lon told lottery officials that he has been used to playing the same numbers or almost ten years when he decided that he needed a change, and hoping that that change would bring him good luck. He sat in front of his computer and chose a random set of numbers manually.
Lon has retired from working as a railroad worker. The winning Powerball ticket he bought was from Casey’s in Afton. He went back to the store the day after the draw had taken place so that he could use the self-checker machine there. It was at that moment when he discovered that his ticket matched four winning numbers. He couldn’t believe it and thought there was a mistake with the machine. “I thought the machine was playing a trick on me,” he explained. The first time Lon chose to play his own random numbers, and it yields him a win!
The Powerball winner’s wife, Terri, joked that she and Lon were so used to seeing the message “TTINAW”, an acronym for “This Ticket Is Not A Winner,” that they could not believe it was finally happening to them. This is the latest big win in Iowa. Last year, a couple won $1 million with Powerball in Iowa.
The Powerball results for the draw won the 23rd of April were: 19-35-46-59-62 and the Powerball 13. The winners want to spend their money on renovations around the house and paying for medical expenses. They also mentioned that they need a new riding lawn mower.
