“I’m keeping it from the kids,” says Lowcountry Powerball® winner

COLUMBIA, SC (April 16, 2019) – A Moncks Corner woman has a secret.

She isn’t telling anyone, including her children, about winning $200,000 in last Wednesday night’s Powerball® drawing.

“I’m keeping it from the kids,” she said.

And her advice on how to do that, “I’m going to live like I did yesterday,” she said.

The winning Powerball® numbers on Wednesday, April 10 were 12, 21, 23, 39, 67 and Powerball®: 6.

As a result of the winner’s purchase of PowerPlay® for an extra $1, the $50,000 prize became $200,000 when a “4” was drawn.

The odds of matching four white ball numbers and the red Powerball® number are 1 in 913,129. The odds of a 4X multiplier being selected are 1 in 14.33 when the jackpot is less than $150 million.

For selling the claimed tickets, Murphy USA #7259 in Moncks Corner received a commission of $2,000.
