Sunday, May 21, 2017

Marquis Jones, from Long Beach decided to purchase a few lottery tickets after picking up on signs from the Universe. Jones, had just turned 40 when he noticed a sign inside Pacific Market, which is located on 2990 Pacific Avenue stating that Powerball's current jackpot was $40,000,000, he had a feeling that he should definitely play it and see what happens. Following this, using the significant number 4 he bought $4 worth of Powerball tickets on April the 4th, what a coincidence! Interestingly, he discovered that one of his tickets matched up 5 of the 6 numbers which were: 8, 20, 46, 53 and 54, just missing the Powerball number 13, giving Jones a lottery prize worth $2,469,064! Upon reaching his mother's house, he tried to wake her up to tell her that he'd matched up 5 numbers and she said "oh yeah, yeah okay" not really believing him, until he quite bluntly stated that he'd just won more than $2 million dollars, then she woke up. Now, Jones plans to purchased a townhome which he's really looking forward to after losing his apartment. The retailer will also receive a $12,345 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
