Scrabble Player Spells A Powerball Win

Theodore Drake is a retired obstetrician and ace Scrabble player from Maine in the USA. Theodore is used to getting high scores with letters and he also has a knack for numbers too as he managed to match the five main numbers for the Powerball draw that took place on the 6th of May 2015 that made him an instant lottery millionaire. Read further for more details. 

The lucky winner respectfully declined the request to speak to the press, but what we do know, is that he bought his winning ticket from Brackett’s Market in Maine on the very day of the draw! Now, how is that for luck?

He chose some of the numbers on his own, and the rest he used the computer to draw them for him. The lucky winning numbers in the May 6th Powerball drawing were as follows: 

23-24-27-39-41 and the Powerball number of 30. 

The co-owner of Brackett’s Market is Kimberley Brackett. Kimberley said that while half of their $20,000 bonus will go towards expenses, the rest of the bonus money will be equally divided between their 28 loyal employees. Each employee will receive a lovely gift prize of $350. That’s a nice surprise to start your working day on a great start!


Happy employees

Kimberley Brackett said that her staff was intensely overjoyed and some “had tears in their eyes”. One of their happy employees said to her, “We all won the lottery.” Kimberley further added, “It was a hard winter for everyone. Giving back to my employees was a no-brainer.” 

The co-owner of the store knows the Powerball winner because he is her Scrabble partner, funny enough. “He’s a lovely man and a good friend of our family,” said Kimberley about Theodore. 

Kimberley stated that in actual fact she rarely, if ever, sells lottery tickets to customers, but on the 6th of May, Theodore popped into the store to give her a Scrabble dictionary to help with her skills. “I play Scrabble with Ted and I am terrible,” she laughed. “Every time that I play with him, I lose.” With Ted’s luck, he probably gets all the high letters and the blank in every single game. 

It was after she was given the Scrabble Dictionary full of useful words such as tranq, xi and kif, that Kimberley sold Ted the Powerball ticket that would change his life forever. Kim further added that she found out about Theodore’s Powerball win on the 7th of May, but decided to keep quiet about his win until he was identified by the lottery officials in Maine. She couldn’t contain her joy and excitement when she had discovered that one of her good family friends had won big with the US Powerball. 

If you want your streak of good luck, then stay right where you are.
