LeAndra Clay of West Helena lost her home in a fire last month but thanks to winning $150,000 on the Powerball lottery she is now able to use her winnings to purchase a new home.
What started out as a nightmare month for LeAndra Clay ended with a silver lining. The Powerball winner said she thanks God for coming to her rescue when she needed it the most.
Speaking to lottery officials after coming forward to claim her $150,000 Powerball prize, she said that she purchased the lucky Powerball ticket at a gas station for the March 23 drawing. If it wasn’t for the fact that she had handed over another dollar for the Power Play the lucky winner wouldn’t have tripled her $50,000 prize.
Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to double check the winning Powerball lottery numbers as the shed she was living in didn’t have any electricity.
It was only on Monday evening that she discovered her win.
“Unfortunately, I couldn’t double check my ticket due to the fact that I don’t have electricity in the shed where I’ve been living since my house was destroyed by the fire.”
“He’s an on-time God,” said the grateful winner on Tuesday.
She went on to say that she was only able to confirm the Powerball lottery win on Tuesday evening when she was finally able to log on to the Arkansas Lottery site.
“I don’t have much family left and kept telling my friends that I have the faith of a mustard seed. I knew that God would bless me soon.”
It’s been a good week for Powerball lottery winners recently as just a day after LeAndra came forward to claim her prize, the winning $768 million Powerball ticket was won in Wisconsin.
The $768.4 million Powerball jackpot win is the third-largest behind the world- record $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot win that was shared by winners in California, Florida, and Tennessee in January 2016.
