One very lucky player from Maryland will be retiring in style after he won $50,000 in a Powerball lottery draw that took place this week. The winner is 52-years-old, a ripe age for retirement after winning money with the lottery. For him, he is looking forward to putting up his feet up after a long life of hard work. Read further for the full story.
The winner preferred to keep their identity private as he isn’t one who enjoys the limelight. He told Maryland Lottery officials that he recently moved from the town of White Marsh to Ocean City to retire. So you could say he was already on his way to retirement, and this Powerball win was just the cherry on top as a farewell gift to begin a new chapter in his life. He is also ecstatic that he will be able to enjoy his retirement with a little bit of luxury now that he can afford it.
He bought his winning ticket at quite an unexpected place – Food Lion on the Coastal Highway. The only reason he bought the Powerball lottery ticket was because he heard how big the jackpot was a week ago. He entered the July 23rd draw for the jackpot amount of $390 million.
“I usually buy a few tickets of Mega Millions and Powerball when the jackpots get really high,” said the happy winner upon collecting his cheque. “Since I’ve been staying at my parent’s place in Ocean City, I started thinking how great it would be if I won and was able to buy a place here of my own,” he added. Well now, he can finally make this dream come true!
This lucky Powerball winner finally has the money to set himself up nicely for retirement in the same town as his parents so he can look after them too. Before he discovered the win, he initially thought he had won $5,000 the day after the draw. But when he went into the lottery retailer, he discovered that it was actually ten times more than that!
“I was only looking to walk away with $5,000, but the lady in the claims department smiled and told me that I had won a few more clams than I had bargained for,” he said smiling. The winner said he was in utter shock and so overwhelmed with joy.
The Powerball winner is a former healthcare professional and said that he will use this money to put towards his retirement home in White Marsh at the beach. “It’s such a great feeling to know I can finally relax a little bit when it matters most and the time is right,” he explained.
Congratulations to him! Your lucky day still awaits you with the Powerball lottery. Enter now! Only players are winners!
