New Jersey Woman is Speechless After Winning $2 Million Powerball
Jessica Macarone bought her Powerball ticket at a newsstand near her job on February 22nd and returned the very next day to check her numbers.
Once there, she discovered that she matched five numbers! On top of that, her decision to purchase the $1 Power Play option doubled her winnings from $1 million to $2 million.
“You’re kidding me,” Macarone shouted when she realized she was a winner. Macarone said that she, like many of us, purchases a ticket whenever the Jackpot is big. Naturally, she was stunned to hear she that she had actually won. She recalled, “you don’t think you’re going to win anything.”
Macarone informed reporters that the money came at a tough time for her, “this was a really rough year. I lost my dad and my uncle, and my mom is having a hard time.”
Although she has no immediate plans for her prize, the money couldn’t have come at a better time! Congratulations Jessica. We wish you all the best as a new millionaire!
