A woman in Detroit, Michigan won $1 million from playing Powerball through the Michigan Lottery. She is ready to make her family’s life better with the money. The 43-year-old woman, LaSharda Morrison’s, lucky numbers are 12, 22, 26, 46, and 59. She matched all five white balls during the August 28th drawing. Morrison bought the Powerball ticket from the Six Mile X-Press Party Store in Detroit.
She told Lottery officials she buys a Powerball ticket occasionally when she feels lucky or the jackpot goes up. In addition, she did not realize she won until several weeks after the drawing when she checked it at the store. Afterward, she double-checked the numbers on her phone because she assumed there must be some sort of mistake. It was no mistake, she won! Morrison recently visited Lottery headquarters in Lansing, Michigan to claim the prize. She plans on buying a new home, taking a vacation, and saving the remainder.
