TORRINGTON, Conn. (WTNH)– Even though that massive $758 million Powerball jackpot was won by a woman in Massachusetts, a Connecticut mother of six still made off with a million dollars!
Johanna Moreno says she doesn’t play Powerball often but she had a couple dollars, so she decided to give it a shot. She bought that winning Powerball ticket at a gas station in Torrington.
The numbers she chose were sentimental. They were a combination of her children’s birthdays. Moreno’s ticket matched the first 5 numbers drawn.
Moreno told the CT Lottery, “it’s been difficult lately but now I plan to get a car, a house for the kids and go to school.” After receiving her check, Moreno added “I’m very thankful-it’s a blessing.”
