The US Powerball Lottery is here to share the prize-winning story of Candace Wellington. The lottery officials are very excited about the player getting the opportunity of a lifetime. The player has won prize money worth 100,000 playing the US Powerball Lottery.
According to Candace, it is the best birthday gift her husband gave her for turning 57. She had never once thought that she would win such large prize money playing a lottery game. Even her husband was surprised and filled with joy when he learned about his wife winning $100,000 from the ticket he bought her.
Candace stated that at first, she was angry at her husband because he forgot it was her birthday on August 20, 2021. Although everyone remembered her birthday, her husband did not even wish her a happy birthday, which made her even more furious.
She did not speak to her husband the entire day and when he gave her a lottery ticket for the US Powerball game, she completely went berserk. Candace informed the lottery officials that she was heartbroken that her life partner forgot to wisher a happy birthday.
The player informed the officials that she is always the first one to wish him and expected the same from him. But when it did not happen, she was fully disappointed and did not want to talk to him the entire day.
Although she wanted to tear the ticket at first, something came into her mind and she decided not to do it. The next morning, as she checked the ticket, she had won prize money worth $50,000.
Candace told the officials that the moment she learned about the prize money, she had tears in her eyes. She felt sorry that she had been so harsh and angry at her husband even though he had worries of his own. She told her husband about the win and he still talked to her normally like nothing had happened.
Candace apologized to him and made him breakfast. That is when her husband gave her the second surprise, which was that she had won double the prize money she thought she had won.
The ticket that Candace’s husband had purchased had the $1 Power Play option added, which added a 2X multiplier to the ticket. As the prize money was $50,000, it ended up getting doubled.
The ticket that Candace’s husband had purchased for her was for Saturday’s, August 21 draw. The lucky numbers the Powerball Lottery officials drew were 61-48-31-19-1 and the Red Powerball was number 6. The player stated that she is going to share the prize money with her husband and they are going to go for a trip together to spend quality time.
