Unlucky Numbers – Woman Buys Powerball Tickets Too Late, Had Winning Numbers


In Pasadena, CA last week Margit Arrobio purchased a Powerball ticket for the the May 15th drawing. The next morning she awoke to hear how no one had hit yet she all six of the winning numbers on her ticket.


Margit had bought her ticket an hour too late to be considered for the Wednesday drawing and thus did not win the jackpot. As we know now, the jackpot grew to $590 million and someone from Florida claimed the prize.

Talking with KABC Margit said she was watching Good Morning America and didn’t understand how no one had won since she had the correct numbers.

I called my gas station where I bought the ticket and I said, ‘I don’t get it’. I have every number and yet they say there’s no winner.

The person at the station asked what time she purchased the ticket, which was about 8pm local time in California – an hour after the numbers had already been drawn.

Shock and disappointment is what Margit says she feels. Me, personally, I’d be kicking myself in the backside for that one. Maybe next time Margit, maybe next time.
