JENNINGS, LA. - A Louisiana mother-of-three has claimed a $2 million Powerball prize from last month’s massive $758.7 million Powerball jackpot drawing.
Sarah Hebert, 26, works at a Tiger Mart in Lake Arthur, where the winning ticket was sold.
“I never would have thought I would win!” Hebert told Louisiana Lottery. “I sell tickets all the time, but really only play when the jackpots get high.”
Hebert received $1,400,00 after state and federal tax withholdings. She says she plans to invest a portion of her prize for her children, aged 2, 4 and 8. Hebert said her boyfriend also plans to “finally” purchase a home.
The store where Herbert works will be awarded a selling bonus of $20,000.
Other winning tickets sold in Louisiana during the large jackpot include two $200,000 tickets sold in Hammond and Jonesboro as well as three $50,000 tickets sold in Covington, Thibodaux and Kentwood.
