MoCo Mom Wins $50,004 Powerball Prize

A 58-year-old mother of two is $50,004 richer after purchasing a winning Powerball ticket at the Giant located at 7142 Arlington Road in Bethesda.  Additional details below courtesy of the Maryland Lottery:

“A Montgomery County jackpot chaser missed a $265 million Powerball jackpot by just one number in the Jan. 2 drawing but she did add $50,004 to her bank account. The 58-year-old was shopping at Giant #327, which is located at 7142 Arlington Road in Bethesda, when she remembered to play her numbers. She’s played a special set of numbers for years and made sure to get a ticket for the Jan. 2 drawing. The big winner played four lines of numbers for $8.

Her husband checked her ticket the next day, using the Lottery’s app to reveal the win. The lucky lady matched four white balls and the red Powerball for $50,000. She also matched the red Powerball on another line, bringing her total to $50,004 “When my husband called to tell me, I just couldn’t believe it,” she said. “I usually only win small amounts.” The program assistant and her husband claimed the prize on Jan. 20 at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. The parents of two children shared with Lottery officials that they plan to use the winnings toward bills and college tuitions. The Powerball jackpot is still on a roll! Players can try to win an estimated jackpot annuity of $526 million in the Wednesday, Jan. 25 drawing, or the estimated cash value of $284 million.”
