Lapeer’s $337-Million Powerball Winner Revealed
As we told you a few weeks ago, the $337 million Powerball Jackpot is going to a single winning ticket holder. That winner, now a multi-millionaire, bought that golden ticket just down the road in Lapeer. The identity of the winner was revealed at 11:30 this morning.
The winning ticket was purchased by Donald Lawson at the Sunoco Station on M-24 by the hospital. It was the only winning ticket nationwide. The winning numbers were 6, 27, 46, 51, 56, with a Powerball of 21.
Lawson accepted a check from the lottery, just hours after quitting his job in Davison. He plans to get out of town for a while and think about what he will do next. In the meantime, he and his close family are retiring.
This was the third largest Powerball jackpot ever and the seventh largest lotto jackpot ever in the U.S.
