A very lucky lottery player from Boise in Idaho, USA, won a top Powerball prize after receiving a ticket as a birthday present that proved to be life-changing. Read his full amazing story right here.
The Powerball winner got given the winning ticket by his wife. His name is Brandon Wirz and he didn’t expect this kind of birthday present, let alone a winning Powerball ticket. There has been an instance like this in the past when a teenager received a lucky ticket for his birthday that also turned him into an instant lottery millionaire.
Brandon’s destined millionaire moment happened on Tuesday last week after his wife handed him his birthday card with two lottery tickets. One was for the Mega Millions lottery, and the other was for the Powerball draw on the 7th of October.
The most amazing part is when Brandon ended up winning even more than he thought he would because of the recent Powerball prize structure upgrade. Maxine Giltner from Iowa also reaped the rewards of this new game change after she won $50,000 on a scratch card when initially he should have only won $10,000. She also received the lucky ticket on her birthday.
Brandon’s winning Powerball ticket matched the first four numbers and the Powerball number. He instantly took home a whopping $50,000. Brandon’s wife, June, said that her husband at first thought he had won only $50,000, but she told him to double-check again and they soon realised that Brandon had, in fact, won triple that amount, “Yeah, it was $150,000. It was an unbelievable birthday!” exclaimed the Powerball winner about his lucky scoop. Brandon joins another lucky Boise winner, Boni Ennis, who also won top prizes on lottery games.
Brandon reported that he actually took a few days to realise his win because he left the ticket on his desk after his birthday and didn’t get around to checking git until he remembered to on the weekend despite the draw taking place on Wednesday evening that same week.
Despite that late setback, he now couldn’t be more thrilled with his lucky gift and the couple say that they are going to use the money to pay off some bills, invest in a college fund for their son, and put the rest of their savings away for the future to come.
