How many Powerball tickets have you purchased lately?
I've bought a bunch, so like you I was VERY SAD when someone in Zephyrhills, Florida won the $590 MILLION Powerball jackpot.
Well there's a woman that is even more sad then we are!
Three nights earlier, when the Powerball jackpot was worth $360 million. A woman named Margit bought five tickets at a Shell station in California. And one of them matched ALL five numbers and the Powerball!
For a moment, Margit thought she'd just become SUPER RICH. So she was surprised when she heard there were NO winning tickets for the drawing.
Turns out Margit didn't win because.... she bought the ticket 52 minutes too late.
The Powerball drawing was at 8:00 P.M., and Margit bought her tickets at 8:52 P.M.
And if you look at her ticket, it clearly shows it's for the Saturday drawing, NOT the Wednesday drawing. And on Saturday she lost, of course.
Margit described her emotions as going from SHOCKED when she thought she'd won, to DISAPPOINTED when she found out she hadn't.
I think it's fair to say that she's way more bummed about the Powerball than we are!
