Connecticut Woman Becomes a Millionaire Overnight
Can I get a Hell Yeah?!
Even though it wasn't me, I'm so excited for this woman -- Connecticut's newest millionaire, courtesy of Powerball on Aug. 23. My tickets may be garbage, but her's led to a wonderful surprise.
The release from the CT Lottery website made this announcement:
Mother of Six Wins $1,000,000 Powerball® Prize with Children’s Birthday Numbers
Sweet! Johanna Moreno had this to say in the news release from ctlottery.org
I really don’t play that often and I only had a couple of dollars on me. I’m just in shock, I couldn’t believe it! It’s been difficult lately but now I plan to get a car, a house for the kids and go to school
Johanna Moreno played a combo of her children's birthdays to match the first 5 numbers of Wednesday's Powerball winning numbers which were, 6 – 7 – 16 – 23 – 26 – Powerball: 4.
There are still some winners waiting to be claimed in Connecticut. According to the CT Lottery Hartford County sold a $2,000,000 ticket. Hey, wait a minute, I bought mine there.
