A lucky Powerball lottery winner from Maryland is planning an extra special wedding anniversary celebration. The happy winner can't wait to celebrate with her husband in style after banking $1 million.
The Powerball winner is from Gaithersburg, Maryland, and she can finally celebrate her wedding anniversary in style after becoming $1 million richer. The 59-year-old has chosen to keep her identity private after claiming her cheque. She did share that she works in education, while her husband is a manager at a pipe fitting company.
The couple didn’t want to have any interviews following their big win, but they allowed the lottery officials to publish certain information about them, like what their plans are with all their money.
They bought their winning Powerball ticket from a Potomac Shell in Gaithersburg between errands and a visit to the doctor. The woman bought her ticket for the August 23rd draw. It was in that draw that a lucky woman from Massachusetts won the whole jackpot of $758 million all for herself.
The $1 million Powerball winner in this story said she usually picks her own lucky numbers, but this time decided to buy five quick pick tickets. In a dazzling twist of fate, the Powerball winner’s husband had also decided to buy some tickets after joining a syndicate with his co-workers in which they invested $340 altogether.
The syndicate only managed to win $30, but one of the members heard the news that a lucky ticket was sold in the area which was a $1 million winner. The husband knew that his wife had also purchased a ticket in the same area, so he urged her to check her numbers.
Once the husband and wife checked their ticket and realised that they had the winner, they hid it in various places around the house like inside a VHS tape case. When they were finally ready to claim their prize, they took the ticket out of the case and wept tears of joy while on their way to the Maryland lottery headquarters.
The happy couple plan to use their windfall to help their adult children financially, boost their retirement fund and celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary in style this fall.
