A lady in Nebraska who owns a store in Raymond has just found out that she sold a life-changing prize from the Powerball lottery to one of her regular customers. She also thinks she knows who it is! Read further for the full story.
The owner’s name in Debbie Martin and she owns “Toni’s Corner” in Raymond, Nebraska. It is a bait and grocery store. On a Sunday morning she arrived at the store, unlocked everything, and logged into her Nebraska lottery account. What she saw next left her absolutely gob-smacked.
There was a notification on the screen telling her that a $2 million winning Powerball ticket was sold at her store. She knew she wasn’t the lottery winner. “At first I thought it was for a scratch ticket,” she told lottery officials, “and then I went ‘Oh my God.’”
Toni’s Corner is a small shop that mostly sells fishing bait and minimal groceries on the route to Branched Oak Lake, so Debbie said that she was very surprised because she only sold 75 tickets for each Powerball draw. Seeing that it’s a small store too, she is familiar with most of the customers who buy Powerball tickets. She also has a sneaking suspicion that she knows who the winner is.
She won’t reveal who they are, though until they come forward themselves with the winning ticket. “It would be so nice if it was someone local,” she explained. “This is a rural area with a bunch of farmers. Somebody’s life has changed, that’s for sure,” admitted Debbie. She has owned the store for over eight years and this is the first time a lottery win has happened. Her store will receive $20,000 for selling the lucky Powerball ticket.
Debbie said that she is extremely grateful for the bonus and will be using it to put towards a construction loan for storage units in her store. “It’s an early Christmas present,” she laughed.
Congratulations to Debbie and to the lucky Powerball winner.
The next Powerball jackpot up for grabs is €94 million! Are you going to be the one who scoops this prize? Then act now!
Best of luck!
