Powerball Lottery Winner’s Dream Comes True

Jeff Tomlinson Jr. is an electronic technician from Coralville, Iowa. Like many Powerball lottery players, he has dreamed of winning a prize and having the means to better his life. Well, his dreams have finally come true after taking home $1 million in the draw that took place on the 5th of October. Keep reading to learn the full story. 

Jeff had no idea what was in store for him. He has always dreamed of winning a Powerball prize, but he never imagined it would be as much as $1 million. “I didn’t really consider it a possibility, it was more of a fantasy of what would I do if I won,” explained Jeff. 

As soon as Jeff’s Powerball winnings were confirmed, he made the decision to use his winnings to take care of his family. He wants to pay off their mortgage and his wife’s car. He also needs to pay off his student loans. Once he has all of that settled, he wants to get down to building a new house and paying his daughter’s college fees. 

Jeff is 32-years-old and has a three-year-old daughter. He was taking her to daycare when he decided to buy a Powerball ticket from Kum & Go in North Liberty, Iowa. 

He bought the Powerball lottery ticket but then didn’t think much of it for a while. He discovered his win on Friday morning when he went back to the store and heard that a winning $1 million ticket was sold there. It was at that moment that he decided to go to his car to look up the Powerball results on his phone. He ran back to the store with his ticket and had his Powerball win confirmed. He couldn’t believe his luck. His dream had finally come true. 

“We all took pictures of my ticket with the receipt and all that. Everybody was excited. I was tearing up and shaking in the middle of the store. I just couldn’t believe it,” explained Jeff. 

Jeff’s Powerball win is the latest in Iowa after Brian Delagardelle won a stunning $1 million prize earlier this year. Jeff quickly went to headquarters to claim his win because he was afraid something might happen to the ticket. He took the day off work and called his wife, Jolene, to tell her the good news. 

“I think she’s still in shock about the whole thing. She kept asking me repeatedly, ‘Are you kidding?’” laughed Jeff. Their winning Powerball lottery numbers were 8-18-27-29-60 and the Powerball bonus ball 15. Jeff opted for a quick pick selection with his ticket. “I just leave it up to the universe. Life is a matter of luck, it’s just how you roll the dice. That’s all it is,” said Jeff. 

Jeff is right. You make your own luck, but you can only hope to win if you enter the game. So enter now!
