One lucky USA Powerball winner can finally make his dreams come true by saying “Farewell” to his boss and retiring early. The winner is from Minnesota and he won $1 million in the Powerball draw that took place on the 9th of April. Read further to discover his full story.
The winner’s name is Joseph Woods and he is from St. Paul in Minnesota. He had one simple message for his boss after discovering that he was a newfound millionaire, “Cheers!”
Joseph used to work part-time for Metro Transit after he retired from his job as a full-time driver nine years ago. After his big win, without even waiting to verify it, he got his boss on the phone and told him, “I’m not coming in anymore, I just won $1 million. Cheers.”
It’s quite popular for Powerball winners who win big to retire from their jobs after establishing a sturdy financial security for themselves. It didn’t take Joseph long to travel to the lottery headquarters in Roseville to claim his Powerball winnings. He told lottery officials that he is very much looking forward to having more time to do the things he loves.
Joseph bought his winning Powerball ticket at a gas station in St. Paul. His ticket matched five main numbers. The Powerball results for his draw were: 14-22-23-41-61. The only number Joseph missed out on was the number 9. Had he matched this bonus number, he would have taken home a massive jackpot prize of $168 million.
The gas station where Joseph bought his ticket has, in fact, proved to be a very lucky one after a series of wins that took place there. There has been a $61.1 million Powerball ticket sold there, a $130,000 scratch card, and a $100,000 Raffled ticket sold there.
Stay in the game and your lucky day will come too. The only time you fail is if you give up trying.
