Anonymous South Carolina Powerball Winner
No one knows who he is but the Anonymous South Carolina Powerball Winner from Columbia reputedly danced around the kitchen with his dog the night he realised he had won the $400 million Powerball lottery jackpot that meant he was a multi-millionaire. For the man and his dog, it was even more remarkable because this was only the second time he had played the lottery.
The Powerball winner later admitted that it was all something of a fluke. He was stopped at a Murphy USA station in the Columbia suburb of Lexington to fill up with gas when his wife called and asked him to pick up some hot dog buns. The station didn’t sell them and instead the man decided to split $20 and play Powerball.
It just goes to show that a Powerball lottery win can often depend on other kinds of luck aside from selecting the winning Powerball numbers.
