Lucky Tina Renee Johnson, a resident of Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA, purchased her ticket at the 7-Eleven in her neighborhood during a family outing. As they approached the register, her cousin observed that the Powerball jackpot had increased and implored her to purchase a July 19 Power Play ticket.
Her additional expenditure of $1 increased her share of the $1 billion windfall to $100,000. Tina stated that her cousin forced her to do it. She would not have paid a dollar more for the Power Play if not for my cousin. However, she advised her to do it. On July 20, Tina claimed her prize at the lottery’s headquarters in Richmond.
