Luck finds people in the most unsuspecting and surprising places. A group of 13 nurses from California, USA, received the blessing of their lives after their Powerball ticket won $638,146 in the 13th of January draw.
The miracle of this story is also that they won this massive prize in the third draw they have ever played with Powerball. The nurses matched five winning numbers but, unfortunately, missed out on the Powerball. They won their Powerball prize in the record-breaking draw for $1.6 billion.
The nurses’ winning Powerball numbers were:
Each one of these lucky syndicate members will be walking away with $49,088 in their pockets before taxes. One of the members, Janelle Mejia, is the organiser of this lucky syndicate and she said that they initially played the 9th of January draw, but then decided to up their chances and buy 65 tickets for the $1.6
They bought all of their tickets in the same place, a 7-Eleven in Redlands. They almost hadn’t gotten tickets there as Janelle was going to go to another store but forgot that the 7-Eleven store was on her way to work and more convenient for her. This was a blessing in disguise.
The nurse who bought the winning ticket didn’t even realise that they had matched five winning numbers until one of her co-workers sent her a text message asking whether their tickets had won anything. She then got reminded to check the results and did so on her phone. It was then that she was stunned to see that they had landed up in the second prize tier.
Janelle then immediately called everyone to let them know the exciting news. Two of their members missed out on joining that draw, so unfortunately, they won’t be getting a share of the win. The Powerball syndicate are the latest big winners in California.
The nurses want to invest most of their money, help the family, and take a few holidays. One player really wants to get a Louis Vuitton handbag. They also want to plan a big party for them and their 150 colleagues at work.
