Man Bags $80 Million Powerball Jackpot After Impulsively Buying A Few Tickets

A Michigan man had his life changed in an instant when he impulsively decided to buy a few Powerball tickets. He managed to match all of the lucky numbers and the Powerball number to bag the entire $80 million jackpot.


Phillip Chippewa would always buy a few Powerball tickets when the jackpot was high, but this time it would almost slip his mind. Luckily a last second impulse buy of four Powerball lines would change his life forever.

After buying the tickets he did not think about them until his wife Dawn called to let him know that the Powerball jackpot had been won, and that the winning ticket had been sold at the store where he regularly bought his tickets from.

'My first thought was: "He better have bought some tickets", said Dawn. In fact, it wasn't until their family Sunday lunch when the subject of the winning tickets was brought up again. This time the family checked their tickets and the winning numbers.

With tears in their eyes they realised that they had won the entire $80 million jackpot. To confirm their win they returned to the store were Phillip had bought the winning ticket, and once the clerk confirmed their win, they knew their lives would never be the same again.

Phillip said that with seven children and 21 grandchildren he has always been rich in family, but now he is happy knowing that he is financially rich too. He went on to say that he plans on building a new home for him and his wife, and with the rest of the money he plans on looking after his family's future.
