Louise White, 81 Is Powerball Lottery $336M Winner
Meet Louise White the 81-year-old woman from Rhode Island who won $336.4 million in the lottery last month.
The new multi-millionaire was suited up with half of a dozen lawyers during a brief press conference put together at the state lottery headquarters in Cranston on Tuesday where she collected her prize.
Dressed in a black suit, Louise White who appeared focused and never smiled decided to collect the lump sum of $210 million said:
“I want to say that I’m very happy, and I’m very proud and this will make my family very happy. We are truly blessed.”
Couple of Louise White’s lawyers revealed that one of her sons by the name of LeRoy White wanted to eat rainbow sherbet which why they drove to the Stop & Shop supermarket in Newport to get the ice-cream and while she was there she decided to purchase a $9 wager with three Quick Pick numbers.
When she found out that her numbers 1-10-37-52-57 and the Powerball 11 were drown on February 11th, she remained calm, told few family members, signed the ticket and kept it hidden in her bible.
Louise White eventually hired a boat load of attorneys and placed her fortune in the Rainbow Sherbet Trust.
