New Haven Man’s Special Powerball® Numbers Finally Drawn
Vacation isn’t over for David Beecher of New Haven as he claimed a $50,000 prize on Powerball
drawn on July 30, 2016. Fresh off a family trip, Beecher almost didn’t play a Powerball ticket. “It was a spur of the moment,” Beecher explained to Lottery officials.
Interestingly enough, Beecher has been playing the same Powerball numbers for seven years and each number has its significance. They are a combination of his daughter’s softball jersey numbers and family member birthdays.
The winning numbers drawn on July 30th were ---- 11 – 17 – 21 – 23 – 32 – Powerball: 5 ---- with Beecher matching 4 numbers and the Powerball.
After checking his winning numbers on the morning news, Beecher was delighted to tell his family the good news. In disbelief, the Beecher family thought he was joking!
The lucky winner looks forward to using his prize for a few bills and “put it away for something fun.” Even though his numbers were finally drawn, Beecher has no plans to change his picks. Call it superstition, but the numbers certainly paid off this time for Beecher and his family.
Beecher’s winning ticket was sold at Krauszer’s located on 25 Townsend Avenue in New Haven.
