A Porterdale mother of four erupted with excitement, having picked up a winning Powerball ticket worth $1 million. Kimberly Little, 43, matched the first five winning numbers of the June 13 Powerball drawing, winning a $1 million prize.
“I was headed to the library to check out some books and relax,” she said.
Bailey’s Food Pride, 5890 Salem Road in Covington, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.
“My first purchase is going to be my minivan,” the lucky winner said.
Little also plans to buy a new home.
“It feels great, and I’m thankful,” she said. “It’s just peace of mind.”
Winning numbers from the June 13 Powerball drawing were: 29-41-48-52-54 and the Powerball was 29.
Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $80 million to a single annuity winner.
