Much to the envy of so many worldwide players, the Powerball jackpot of $90 million was finally grabbed over the past weekend – with the lucky lottery winner finally coming forward to put claim to the mammoth jackpot prize. Who was the mystery jackpot winner? Let’s see whose life will now forever be changed by the fortuitous US Powerball Lottery.
Seattle is home to the world’s newest prosperous Powerball winner who walks away $90 million wealthier since the big weekend lotto win on Saturday. Lucky winner Lisa Quam said of her win that she just couldn’t believe it. Her disbelief was extended to her family when she shouted:
"I yelled to my family, 'Get up here!' They all thought I was mad and angry about something. My daughter asked, 'Is this an emergency?' and I said, 'Yes!'"
Speaking from a news conference yesterday the fortuitous players revealed that she ran to the grocery store to take a break from Thanksgiving Day cooking to pick up the Black Friday newspaper and some spices. She and her husband bought two Powerball tickets on the way to checkout; Lisa says:
"The cashier was really nice and asked if we wanted to purchase Powerball. I said, 'Sure!' I had never purchased a Powerball ticket before.”
Their lucky decision paid off ‘big-time’ as she even admits to only being a “special occasions” lottery player – and this was her first Powerball game! Now that’s what you call amazing luck, but according to Lisa she’s actually not a very lucky person, with her husband even stating:
"My husband says it's just dumb luck."
She has been working as a sourcing specialist at Boeing, managing contracts for 25 years and her husband of 32 years has been a Boeing mechanic for around 16 years. The couple have yet to decide whether or not to take the money over 30 annual payments or the immediate lump sum payment. If Quam chooses the latter, she instantly walks away with $56.8 million in winnings.
And what does the new US Lottery multi-mega-million wish to do with her giant winnings first?
The couple plan to quit their jobs, and immediately travel. After which they plan to buy a new car which they have already picked out – a Subaru Forester. Not the most lavish or luxury car considering the sizeable amount that they have won, but at least they’ll have a great deal of change left over from the purchase.
The midweek Powerball draw went unclaimed, meaning that the first prize now sits at a magnificent $50 million ahead of the next draw on Saturday.
