A lucky couple who won $50,000 on Powerball can finally start planning their wedding! The happy winners are from Connecticut, USA, and this was the opportunity they were waiting for in order to plan the wedding of their dreams.
The winners are Erika Jackson and Anthony Zagaroli. They have been playing the popular multi-state game together every now and again, but especially when the jackpots are big. “We do enjoy playing the lottery, but we will play much more when the jackpots get really big,” said Anthony.
They decided to buy themselves a Powerball ticket on their day off while running some errands around town. “I thought to myself, ‘we should check our ticket!’”, explained Anthony after the draw had taken place. They checked their results using a self-check machine. It was at that moment that the machine started flashing with the $50,000 prize in front of them.
The winners couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw that flashing on the computer screen. “I double checked the ticket again – I was in complete shock!” said Anthony. Still in disbelief, the couple kept checking the results on their phones, making sure that they hadn’t made an embarrassing mistake before claiming their prize!
They managed to win $50,000 after their ticket matched four numbers out of the main five. The five main numbers were 1-3-13-19 and 69 drawn on the 11th of October. The Powerball bonus ball was 23.
The couple had been engaged for four years before this win happened. They said that this was the opportunity they were waiting for so that they could afford a wedding. Now, they can finally afford to get married in style! “Life got in the way, maybe we can finally plan the wedding how we’ve always dreamt about. It feels deserved,” said Erika.
They are really looking forward to the wedding, but they are now even more excited about their honeymoon. They have the means to go anywhere in the world now and experience a honeymoon vacation like never before!
The Powerball winners bought their ticket from Krauszer’s Food store on Cedar Street in Branford.
