One Michigan woman bought her Powerball ticket for Saturday’s drawing on a whim based on numbers she saw in a dream, and won $1 million.
Kristen Martin, who rarely plays the lottery, needed to ask cashiers for help when purchasing her ticket for Wednesday’s $360 million drawing. Martin purchased her ticket from a Goldsworthy’s Inc. in Blanchard, MI.
Martin bought a total of 5 tickets for the drawing, and come drawing day forgot about them. Martin told her husband she dreamed she had 4 winning numbers, and revealed she had bought a few tickets. Her husband told her he heard someone in Blanchard, MI had won and they wondered if it was them.
Martin’s daughter called her Thursday evening to confirm that the winning ticket in Blanchard belonged to her and she now owned $1 million. Martin and her family plan to spedn responsibly, focusing on bills and other expenses. They are considering a new car.
Tonight’s Powerball jackpot is set at $40 million, and the drawing will be live on LotteryHUB at 11:00pm EST.
