Woman discovers Powerball winning ticket before Christmas

Teresa King, a woman from Fletcher, discovered her Powerball winning ticket worth $200,000 right at the time of Christmas Eve. She bought her Powerball jackpot-winning ticket four months back from the Citistop on Patton Avenue in Asheville. She claimed her prize recently to collect a sum of $139,002 (after taxes). “My husband and I keep the tickets in a little dresser beside our bed. We had so much going on, we just forgot about them. It was a Christmas Gift! It was one of those treasures I found that I did not know I had,” King told lottery officials.


The winning numbers for the drawing were 01, 03, 13, 15, 44, 25, Power Ball 25, and Power Play 2x. There was no other ticket holder who matched all the numbers drawn in Saturday’s Powerball drawing. Another straight rollover has increased the Powerball jackpot to $337 million. So, the winner would get a $210.4 million as the cash payment if there’s a match on Wednesday night’s (Dec. 27, 2017) drawing.


Here’s a list of the American states with maximum number of Powerball jackpot winners.

The three couples – John & Lisa Robinson from Tennessee, Maureen Smith & David Kaltschmidt from Florida, and Marvin & Mae Acosta from California – have jointly scooped the biggest Powerball jackpot ever and collected $533 million (before taxes) each.
