PHOENIX (Reuters) â€“ Ending nearly two weeks of suspense, a 64-year-old
substitute teacher and single parent from Arizona claimed a $95.3 million
Sheila Verke, a Fort Mohave resident, presented the single-winning ticket
to lottery officials in Phoenix on Monday. She opted to take a lump sum
payment of $49.9 million, saying she plans to buy a recreational vehicle
and travel the country.
"It's going to change my life and the life of my children and my
grandchildren and my friends," said Verke, who was joined by friends and
financial advisers at a press conference.
A single parent with two children and five grandchildren, Verke said she used
a well-worn strategy to win the December 1 top prize -- picking a set of
numbers and staying with them each week for years.
Her winning combination of 5-10-11-12-20, with a Powerball number of 2,
is a combination of her birthday and that of her two children, she said.
"I picked these numbers at least 6-and-a-half years ago and stuck with them.
Even if I had to gather quarters, nickels and dimes, I bought them," she told reporters.
Verke bought the winning ticket at a Safeway supermarket in Fort Mohave,
which is about 200 miles northwest of Phoenix.
She is Arizona's third-largest winner of Powerball, a game played by
residents in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Her odds of winning were more than 1 in 195 million.
