When Quinn Hale of Washington D.C. received the call from his brother Eric, saying that he would keep his childhood promise, he could hardly believe it. Brother Eric Hale, from Oregon, had struck it lucky with his $1 million Powerball winning and contacted him to share his good news and good fortune.
The ‘brother of the year’ candidate said that “When I was a kid, I promised my brother [Quinn] that if I ever won the lottery, I would split it with him. He was my first call when I realized I won.” Quinn says that he couldn’t actually believe that his brother would stick to his promise from years back and is still in disbelief over the win. Deciding to take the prize upfront, each brother takes home roughly $335,000 after tax. Hale was just one number out of taking the jackpot prize in the September 24th Powerball drawing with five successful numbers matched, but just missing the Power Ball. The jackpot missed then stood at $228 million, with the winning lottery numbers being: 7/14/21/24/41 and the Power Ball of 26.
Doing the smart thing first Eric contacted a financial advisor as soon as possible to get an idea of how his cash distribution would go. Of his winnings, he said that he would invest some money and continue graduate school. His brother Quinn would like to put a down payment on a motorhome and pay off some debts and bills. Hale and former winner Don Ross, are now the two highest Powerball winners from Oregon this year. Hale said he had purchased his ticket from a Quick Way Market while he was on his way to visit his mother and had played the same numbers that he’s been playing for the past 20 years. It would seem that Hale’s consistency and lottery playing dedication has finally paid off, and it’s great to see that the lottery’s generosity has touched more than one person.
