Sometimes you just need a bit of luck. Take Lawrence Ginn, for example. This lucky Powerball player from Washington D.C recently won the Jackpot of 1 million dollars. What is he going to do with the money?
Bought his ticket at this own shop
Ginn bought a ticket from his own store, Ginn’s Seafood and Quickstop. This place is located at Carolina Avenue in Washington. He picked the numbers himself. These lucky numbers matched with all the few balls that appeared during a draw on October 21st. The odds? 1 in 11.6 million…
Ginn is still emotional about it. “It’s unbelievable” he said to the press. The lucky winner still can’t believe it: “It still hasn’t sunk in.” After federal and state tax withholdings, Ginn received 707,501 dollars. Enough to pay the bills and to invest in his business.
