Considered lottery a waste of money
Danny Johnson, a resident of Hampton, Virginia State, has won $150,000 (about Rs 1.22 crore) in his first lottery. Danny Johnson took this lottery after a lot of pressure from one of his friends. Danny always believed the lottery game to be bogus. He believed that it was a waste of time as well as money. Earlier this month, a friend of Danny asked him to buy Powerball tickets.
Many of his lottery numbers were eating mail
He said he had bought a ticket for the November 5 draw using the website of the state lottery agency. I checked the winning numbers on the day the draw was announced. I was getting some of them in the lottery. I didn’t know how much I would win because I had never played. Reportedly the numbers 5 from his lottery ticket matched the drawing of the Powerball.
Prize amount increased manifold due to power play option
Danny Johnson won the $50,000 prize. He then opted for the power play option. Which brought his jackpot prize money to $150,000. Johnson has no plan to spend this amount at the moment. However, he is planning to give a surprise gift to his friend who inspired him to buy the ticket.
