Of her client, Ms Laborde said “You couldn’t meet a more deserving Lottery winner.” She went on to tell more about the lucky Louisiana Powerball lottery ticket holder. “She is a retiree from federal civil service and works two part-time jobs to supplement her and her husband’s income. She is planning to give some of her Powerball jackpot money to her church, take care of her family’s debts, fix up her house, replace her old car, travel and save enough so that she doesn’t have to worry about bills in the future.”
The lucky winner decided to play Powerball at Franklin Shell Gas on Franklin Avenue in New Orleans who sold the lucky Powerball jackpot winning ticket, which was one of three to split the top prize in the May 25th 2013 Powerball draw. The other tickets were sold in Florida and Delaware. The trustee has decided to opt for the cash payout, rather than annual payments stretching over 30 years. This has resulted in a one time amount of over $10 million, which after taxes, will net the winner over $7million for their Louisiana Powerball lottery prize. The retailer also shared in the good fortune and received a bonus of $25,000 for selling the Powerball jackpot winning ticket.
Much like Autobahn BP convenience store who received $50,000 for selling Kevin Carlson his $71.5 million winning ticket in December 2013.
