In Seattle Washington Lisa Quam purchased her first Powerball ticket on Thanksgiving of all days. Little did she know that she would win the Powerball jackpot on the very first try!
She put the tickets on the fridge and ended up checking them on Sunday. She reviewed the numbers a few times and then yelled to her family to get upstairs!
She sent out an email to all her friends and co-workers letting them know how it was a pleasure to work with them over the years and that they should check the news today. She also quit her job.
Quam has still not decided on whether to take the annuity payments for 30 years or to take the lump sum which will be averaged to $56,800,000! Her winning jackpot was $90,000,000.
“We have student loans just like every family, house repairs. Maybe we’ll buy a house for one of the kids,” answered Quam when asked what she would do with her winnings.
Quam stated that she will be getting a new car: a Subaru Forester and most definitely doing some much needed traveling.
So sometimes the first time you try something can change your whole outlook on your life. You just never know!
Good luck everyone!
