Shirley White is retired from a career as a Realtor and lives in the small Ohio River town of Newburgh. Whenever Shirley needs to get gas, she stops at the local Huck’s and picks up a few Powerball® tickets as well.
One morning, Shirley opened the Hoosier Lottery app on her phone to check the previous night’s numbers and was shocked to see she matched four out of five numbers and the Powerball to win $50,000. “I couldn’t believe it,” said Shirley. “I looked at it at least three times!”
Shirley called her daughter and her son to tell them about her win, and they were both very surprised and happy for her. Still not able to contain her excitement, Shirley went to the real estate office where she used to work—and still has a desk—to share her news. Everyone there was thrilled for her.
Shirley plans to put her winnings in savings.
