A young couple wins a Million US$ in the Powerball
Adam and Mandy Clark discovered they had an unplanned US$ 350,000 tax bill on April 15, and they´re thrilled.
That´s because they get to keep the other US$ 650,000 from the 1 Million winning lottery ticket.
"We´re excited to get our first home and put some money aside for our daughter´s college, and some for retirement," said Adam.
The Clarks said their winnings have made long-term planning a more exciting proposition in their household. Adam is a production manager at Nutritional Labs and Mandy works at Missoula Surgical Associates. Their daughter is 8 months old. They´ve been married for two years.
The couple said they usually buy two or three tickets a month, occasionally winning $5 or $10.
"I bought a ticket for Saturday´s drawing after we found our win on Wednesday," Mandy said. "I bought a ticket today as well. The odds are the same."
