Three-Member Family Partnership Hit $191.1 Million Jackpot

By matching all the numbers drawn, a ticket sold at Brownie’s at 150 West Maple Avenue in Eunice, won a whopping $191.1 million jackpot on Tuesday. A family partnership scooped this prize. The winning numbers for December 12 drawing were 18-22-29-54-57 and Powerball 08. One of the members purchased the lucky ticket on October 25 who took it to work offshore and back via helicopter. Lafayette attorney Jean C. Breaux Jr. on behalf of a three-member family partnership claimed the Powerball Jackpot prize of $191.1 million. He opted for the lump-sum prize payment option equal to the jackpot’s cash value. So, the family received $83,644,879 after state and federal tax withholdings. Well, the Powerball enables its winners to receive the prizes in any of these two ways; i.e., one-time payment or annuity prize amount in 30 graduated installments.


Breaux claimed it for the three-member group using his authority as their attorney. He claimed that his clients regularly play the Lottery. “The winner checked the numbers against an older ticket on his phone and did not check the correct ticket until two members spoke on the phone,” he stated. As per the officials, it was the largest single jackpot ever won in the Louisiana Lottery‘s 26-year history. The largest prize won in Louisiana was a $97 million Powerball jackpot previously. It was scooped by a ticket holder from Metairie on Jan. 16, 2008. For selling the winning ticket, the Brownie’s Store will receive a bonus of $25,000. The owner Jeffery Duplechin is planning for a small vacation with the prize. He added: “I am very excited to put Eunice on the map with this big win. It is well known that successful tickets are sold here.”
