Day to day life is tough. We all work hard to provide for our family and make a name for ourselves in the industry we are passionate about. Sometimes, though, we all long for that extra something that would turn our lives around for good. For a team of truck drivers who love playing Powerball, they got that extra little something that has made that much sweeter.
The group of forty truck drivers are from New York State and they are currently celebrating a fantastic win with the USA Powerball to the value of $1 million.
The team member who bought the winning USA lotto ticket was Kenneth Shumway. He was the proactive one who said he wanted to get a Powerball ticket for the upcoming draw, so he asked his friends if they were keen to make a contribution so they could increase their odds. They all agreed, and forty truck drivers gave Kenneth $5 to get tickets.
Kenneth then went to Stewart’s Shop on Route 9 in Valatie and bought 100 Powerball tickets! Fortune most definitely was in their favour because they ended up winning $1 million. After taxes, the total prize sum the team will receive is $661,800. When split between 40 players, each person will receive $16,540. This New York State win is the most recent big Powerball win.
The draw they entered was for the 9th of January and the winning numbers were:
16-19-32-34-57 and the Powerball 13.
“I looked for the Powerball number first and only had it in a couple of places,” said Kenneth. “I started checking the other numbers and there they were on the second ticket I looked at; we had all of the first five numbers,” he added excitedly.
This win by a syndicate is the latest team Powerball win. The profession of truck driving seems to be getting one win after another. A very lucky profession it seems like!
The next port of call for Kenneth is going to be keeping the ticket safe. He consulted his wife and they decided to put it in a plastic bag and hide it in a sack of flour until they could move it to a safety deposit box.
Well, whatever it takes to keep all that hard-earned cash safe and sound!
