“One Pizza And A $2M Powerball Win Please,” is quite likely exactly what the latest Powerball winner had to say prior to bagging the amazing usa lotto win recently.
Jhirmar Washington, from Vacherie in Louisiana, won $2 million on the Powerball lottery on October 7th thanks to his cousins being hungry.
The 34-year-old Powerball player said he bought his winning ticket at Taylor’s Express, on Highway 3125 in Gramercy.
He also said that he would have nearly not purchased the life-changing Powerball lottery ticket, if it wasn’t for his cousin, who was with him at the time, and who said she was hungry.
“We went to Taylor’s to get her something to eat and left with pizza and a Powerball ticket,” said Jhirmar.
Its not the only time however, that Jhirmar forgot all about the Powerball ticket though, as it was only when he heard about a winning ticket sold in the area, that he remembered he had bought a Powerball ticket too.
“I didn’t even think about it until six or seven Sunday night when I saw the big winning ticket was bought at Taylor’s.”
Jhirmar’s winning Powerball ticket matched all five main numbers drawn, causing him to win the $1 million secondary prize. Thanks to him selecting the Powerplay option on his ticket, his prize was doubled.
The lucky winner opted to take the lump sum, and after state and federal taxes will take home $1.4 million.
When it comes to what he plans to do with his new found wealth, Jhirmar said that at the moment he plans to invest his Powerball winnings in his future.
The Taylor’s Express store where the winning ticket was purchased is located in Gramercy on Highway 3125, and the store will receive a $20,000 bonus for selling a winning ticket.
