We’re all very familiar with lottery winners who take a while to claim their prize winnings. We know that either they want their prize to accumulate interest, or they simply have forgotten to check their results. For this winner, the latter was the case for him after he won $671,089 with the popular usa lotto, the Powerball online. Read his full story here. 

The winner is Paul Matson from California, USA, and he took two and a half months to claim his Powerball winnings. The reasons for claiming prizes so late vary, for example, $110 million Powerball winner Willie Nelson, forgot about his winning ticket in his car for three days. A MegaMillions winner by the name of Linda Tuttle from Michigan also had a $1 million winning ticket hidden under some old mail. 

Paul, however, had a perfectly understandable excuse for as to why he claimed his winnings so late. He cashed in late because he simply hadn’t checked his Powerball tickets for the draw he was entered in. The draw took place on the 23rd of November. 

Paul buys his tickets on a regular basis, but with weeks apart from each buy. After he buys his tickets, he always puts them away safely into a draw. He only checks them when he knows they are about to expire soon. This is how this win happened, too. He was cleaning out his drawer and took the tickets out to check their expiry dates. He went and got them checked at a Lottery Check-a-Ticket scanning machine.

After he scanned them, he couldn’t believe his eyes. “I thought, ‘Oh, the machine is malfunctioning,’” explained Paul when telling of his win. When he confirmed his win at the clerk’s counter, he said, “You’ve got to be kidding me.” 

Paul’s winning Powerball numbers were:

08-29-51-58-41

Paul only missed out on the Powerball of 5. If he had matched this number too, he would have walked away with the highly in-demand $235 million jackpot. 

Paul says that this win is going to make life a little easier for him. Paul wants to buy himself a new home with the winnings and live a safe and comfortable life. 

We wish him all the best and we congratulate him on defying the odds and taking home such a magnificent prize. 

You can also take home a lovely prize if you play the online lotto with the cheapest tickets available to you.
