Johanna Moreno smiles big for her $1,000,000 Powerball® prize
Mother of Six Wins $1,000,000 Powerball® Prize with Children’s Birthday Numbers
August 24, 2017 -- On the night of the second largest Powerball® jackpot in history, Johanna Moreno thought she’d take a chance and purchased only one ticket for the drawing. “I really don’t play that often and I only had a couple of dollars on me.”

Little did she know, a $1,000,000 prize win was waiting for her! “I’m just in shock, I couldn’t believe it!” 

The Powerball winning numbers drawn on August 23 were ---- 6 – 7 – 16 – 23 – 26 – Powerball: 4. Moreno’s ticket matched the first 5 numbers drawn. The numbers played were a combination of Moreno’s children’s birthdays.

After seeing the winning numbers posted on Facebook, Moreno ran outside to retrieve her ticket. “I [had to] go to the car, my ticket was in the car! I knew the numbers right away.” After double checking her ticket, she could hardly contain her excitement. “I jumped for joy! I put it in my purse and zipped it up but could barely sleep!”

“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 looked up and said with a smile, “I’m very thankful—it’s a blessing.” 

For selling the winning ticket, North Elm Mobil located on 100 North Elm Street in Torrington will receive a $2,500 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
