Dave & Nancy Honeywell – February 6th, 2013
Dave Honeywell’s grandson summed up the feeling of being part of a lottery winning family with one incredibly apt word: "Awesomeness!" Grandpa Dave had purchased 5 Powerball tickets at Richmond International airport whilst departing on a business trip. Upon returning through the airport a few days later he checked his numbers and realised he was a winner of the $217 million Jackpot. Dave and his wife Nancy can now afford to let their dreams take flight.
First on the shopping list is a new car, followed by early retirement and a new place to call home.
Winning numbers: 5, 27, 36, 38, 41, and Powerball 12
‘The Shipping 20’ – June 13th, 2012
Oats are not only good for your digestion; this wholesome grain product has turned out to be an incredibly profitable line of work for 20 Quaker Oats employees who split a $241 million Powerball jackpot amongst them. They claimed their jackpot under the name ‘The Shipping 20 Trust’ a moniker that references their shared line of employment, working in the shipping department at a Quaker Oats factory. Members of the lotto pool range between the ages of 35 and 64 but we are certain that a jackpot prize like this will be enough to make them all feel young again.
Winning numbers: 7, 10, 14, 33, 57 and Powerball 18
Donald Lawson – August 15th, 2012
Self-professed ‘Hillbilly’ Donald Lawson may have set a new record for understatement when he declared “My living situation will greatly improve," after taking home a $337 million Powerball jackpot in 2012. This 44 year old father of 2 immediately quit his job as a railway engineer after matching the 6 winning numbers. Despite now being extraordinary wealthy he has vowed to stay down to earth claiming, “I’ll still go to McDonalds”. This reminds us of another big jackpot winner, Adrian Bayford, who famously celebrated his €190 million Euromillions win by ordering takeout Pizza.
Winning numbers: 6, 27, 46, 51, 56 and Powerball 21
Behind every unthinkably large lottery jackpot win is a real person (or perhaps a family or even a lottery syndicate) who has had their lives forever changed. Winning the USA Powerball is not easy but someone has to do it.
Make sure you are in with a shot at the big prize with a ticket in tonight’s $400 million USA Powerball draw.
