This is exactly what happened to Richard Watson of Belton, Missouri. Formerly known as the ‘mystery winner’ of last November’s $1 million Powerball prize, Watson came to claim his winnings at the Iowa lottery headquarters after lottery officials held a news conference in Tipton. The news conference was held in Tipton, since that was the place the $1 million Powerball ticket was bought. After checking his Powerball ticket, Watson found out he was the mystery winner the Iowa lottery officials had been looking for!
What a shocker!
Watson was shocked: “I travel for work and I have a bundle of lottery tickets that I was planning on going through, but I hadn’t yet”, Watson said. “And I received a call that I thought was a scam, but it turned out it wasn’t.”
There you go – the perfect example to show you the imprtance of checking your lottery tickets asap after the draw takes place! What if Watson had not seen the news conference? He stated he planned to check the bundle of lottery tickets he had bought over time, but when would that have happened? As you know, Powerball tickets are only valid for a limited amount of time. This period differs from state to state, but in any case we strongly suggest to not wait longer than you have to when it comes to checking a ticket and picking up a prize! Go get it while it is still warm!
