Happiness can be found in the most unexpected places – and sometimes one of those places just happens to be the floor of your sister’s truck. That’s exactly where Lerynne West almost lost her Powerball ticket worth $343.900.000. Try to replicate her success in the next draw – Powerball Boost is currently offering a ground-breaking $750.000.000 winfall!
West was one of two player who correctly guessed the winning numbers 8, 12, 13, 19 and 27 with the Power Ball 4 on October 27th. She made the lucky purchase at Casey’s in Redfield, where she recently bought a house. The new-found millionaire got a hold of the golden ticket while grabbing pizza and coffee with her sister.
West decided to check her numbers after a friend informed her someone in Redfield hit the jackpot, but realized her ticket was nowhere to be found. After a brief moment of panic, it turned out the ticket was on the floor of her sister’s truck the whole time – and it was worth $343.900.000!
Fortunate Iowa woman described her incredible victory as “a life-changing moment”, and said she’ll use some of the winnings to buy new car, go on a long vacation and help out her family and friends. She also intends to give back to the causes and organizations close to her heart through newly-established Callum Foundation.
“We have a board set up that will go over the requests and decide what is in the best interests of the Callum Foundation. The whole thing of knowing when to pull together a team and work on these plans came from years of playing and daydreaming about winning the lottery. Then once it finally happens, it’s a whole new ballgame,” explained the $343.900.000 winner.
