Lori Paldino of New Jersey has won a huge $2 million jackpot from the Powerball Lottery. The ticket she had bought for the July 2 draw managed to match all 5 regular numbers drawn but not the powerball. Normally that would have meant only a million dollar payout, but since Paldino invested an extra dollar in the Powerplay option, the prize was doubled. A dollar for an extra million dollars; if only all investments paid that well!
Paldino already has a few plans for the money, including paying off mortgage and buying a ‘practical car’ for her daughter. When asked what the best part about winning is, she has only one answer: peace of mind.
