James Stocklas spotted and took a photo of a yacht just hours before buying a winning $291.4 million Powerball lottery ticket. He was enamored by the yacht and thought to himself, ‘I need to hit the lottery for this,’
He discovered that he won the $291.4 million jackpot on Friday while eating at a Bethlehem diner, reading an article about the lottery on his smart phone. He learned that he matched all numbers down to the Power Ball, and trembled for an hour.
He chose to collect his winnings in a lump sum totaling $191,470,307.
He says he will use the winnings to take care of his family, saying “Family takes care of family”
