Mike Byrum, of Mr. Juliet, Tennessee had been experiencing some bad luck, and recently had to close his motorcycle shop because of hard times.
Then, one day, he said. “I started feeling lucky again.” Maybe he knew something no one else did.
Byrum even told his best friend he was going to win the lottery. Turns out, Mike was absolutely correct!
You just can’t believe how lucky I’ve been, he said, describing one example of how the price of the gas he was purchasing was lowered just at the moment he began to pump. This is just incredible. We are truly blessed, he said of his family, which includes wife Tammy, daughter Brittney and son Dallas.
Mike won $800,000 by playing Power Play when he purchased his Powerball ticket. Mike’s ticket matched five of five white balls, which is a $200,000 prize; and with the 4 that was the Power Play number for Saturday, Mike’s prize was quadrupled to $800,000!
He plans to pay off bills with the cash and put some away for further use.
By the Numbers:
Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is huge, at $96 million.
Wednesday night’s Powerball jackpot is $15 million.
Friday night’s Euro Millions jackpot is 26 million Euros.
Good luck everyone.
