Debra Newman, from Austin, southern Minnesota is in luck, having claimed a Powerball ticket worth $50,000 just a day before its expiry date! Newman turned up at the Roseville lottery headquarters on Thursday, however had she turned up after 5pm on Friday the 13th 2017, her ticket's value would have dropped down to $0. Newman says she doesn't usually play the lottery, however her co-workers convinced her to buy a ticket last year when the lottery jackpot soared to an all time high of $1.5 billion. She says the reason she had not claimed the money earlier was because it was a rough year for her and she thought the deadline was definitely February. It was only when she heard on the news that a ticket in Austin was due to expire, that she realised it was hers. The ticket was purchased at The Kwik Trip located at 1201 W. Oakland Av. In Austin, matching 4 of the 5 numbers and the Powerball.
