James Marino is retired and the proud grandfather of nine grandchildren. He lives with his son’s family and helps care for their three young children during the day. After dropping the youngest off at school, James stopped at a Casey’s on his way home and bought a Powerball® ticket. James likes to play Draw games because he feels like the excitement of potentially winning lasts longer and because of the large jackpots.
James purchased five Quick Picks on his Powerball ticket. The next day, he checked his ticket and saw the very first Quick Pick matched all but one number. Stunned, he showed his son to be sure he was reading it correctly. His son agreed—James just won $50,000!
James plans to pay bills and invest the rest of his prize money.
