Buying a Powerball lottery ticket was the last item on this couple’s shopping list – but it ended up being the first step towards a brand new life filled with exciting opportunities. Here’s the latest Powerball jackpot winners who won the massive $246,764,131 million!
The day was like every other day, nothing different, same old routines, except for one tiny purchase… buying a last minute Powerball ticket while grocery shopping.
William ten Broeke, from Georgie, will always thank his lovely wife Heather for reminding him to buy the Powerball ticket. The couple were just about to leave the shop after buying their groceries when Heather said, 'Aren't you going to get a ticket?'
William admits that if it wasn’t for his wife reminding him to buy a Powerball ticket their luck would not have been sealed.
“Without her reminding me to buy the ticket, we wouldn't have won,' said William, 46 as the ten Broekes arrived at Georgia Lottery headquarters on Monday to claim their huge prize.
But, like so many other lottery players, it was several days after the $246 million Powerball draw before they checked their ticket and realized they were winners. It was only due to the fact that local news reports stated that the lucky ticket had been purchased in their area and had still not been claimed, that they remembered buying the lotto ticket.
'We were shocked,' William said. 'We couldn't believe it. We checked the numbers numerous times.'
The lucky couple who got married in 2011, and have one child and two dogs selected the cash option which amounted to $165,613,511 before taxes. They plan to invest, travel, help family and donate the money to charity.
