Powerball Winner Carried Around A Winning Ticket For Five Months

Yet another Powerball lottery winner walked around with a winning Powerball ticket – with no idea how easily they could have lost the usa lotto ticket.

Barbara Yiesley from Central City, Iowa in the USA, completely forgot she even had the ticket. It was only when she decided to clean out her purse that came across several lottery tickets. She told lottery officials that they tickets were purchased over the course of the summer and she had forgotten all about them in her purse.

Luckily the usa lottery tickets were in perfect condition, waiting for their chance to come out and reveal their life changing abilities.
Barbara, 61 years of age, took the tickets to a self-service lottery checker, and had no idea what to do.

“I’m not real good about checking them and cashing them in,” she told Iowa Powerball officials last week when she claimed her $50,000 prize.
She eventually did figure out how to scan the tickets, but then the machine began to scan off winner claim forms!

This alerted the store clerk to call over a manager.
 
“He stood there looking at it for a while and then asked me if I knew what I’d won?”

“I said, ‘No.”

The manager told her that she was now $50,000 richer thanks to the Powerball lottery.

Barbara said she as though she was about to have a heart attack.

Barbara told lottery officials that she plans to share the majority of her winnings with her children, and the rest will go into savings for the future.
