It’s very profound for one to find their metaphorical four-leaf clover at an old age. That’s what happened to the 64-year-old Doug Paschke.
Paschke, who lives in Minneapolis, stepped up Monday and claimed his $1 million in winnings from last Wednesday’s Powerball drawing.
“I’ve been unlucky most of my life. It’s about time that my lucky star is shining on me,” Paschke said after arriving at the Minnesota Lottery headquarters in Roseville with his winning ticket. “I have a feeling that I’m not done winning.”
His ticket matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball number. Later on, he decided to buy the ticket at the SuperAmerica convenience store at 5105 34th Av. S. in Minneapolis. That store collects a $5,000 bonus for selling the ticket.
At a price of $2 each, Powerball tickets are sold in Minnesota and 43 other states as well as Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. However, no one matched all the numbers in drawings last Wednesday or Saturday’s drawings, this implied that grand prize of $165 million is up for grabs in this Wednesday’s drawing.
