A Powerball winner had a hard time believing his lucky Powerball lottery numbers had turned him into an instant millionaire recently.
Robert Thomas from Charleston in South Carolina, USA, recently won a $2 million prize on the Powerball lottery drawing which took place on July 11th.
Speaking to lottery officials, the lucky Powerball lottery winner said that he went into the same store, the Fas Check on Campbell’s Creek Drive in Charleston, where he purchased his tickets and to have them checked. Thinking it was just a routine check and more than likely nothing would come of it, he got the shock of his life when store owner, Dave, told him that he had won a huge Powerball prize.
In fact, it took quite a lot of persuading that he had matched the winning Powerball numbers 19, 21, 27, 46 and 47, missing just the Powerball number of 7 which would have won the top jackpot prize.
Naturally with the news that he had just become an instant millionaire caused Robert to completely forget why he had gone into the store for in the first place and all he could think of was immediately contacting his wife to tell her their good fortune.
“When I got home, I told my wife I forgot what I went to the store for before they told me I won $2 million.”
When asked at the lottery headquarters what he would do with the money, Robert replied, “I’ll pay some bills with it, but it's security for my wife.”
He continued to tell lottery officials that they have both worked hard their whole lives and both were now encountering health issues and that the Powerball win will now without a doubt take a load off their minds.
Even though Robert had such a hard time believing his Powerball win, it’s not the first time that he has found luck on the Powerball lottery.
Earlier this year he was one of 25 lottery players to win a spot on the Power Cruise which departs in January and gives participants the chance to win multiple prizes during the course of the trip.
There isn’t much difference between you and all of these newfound multi-millionaires and as long as you keep trying, you will be giving yourself the opportunity to win big.
The US Powerball jackpot is currently sitting at a massive $130 million, so whatever you do make sure you too buy a Powerball lottery ticket!
