Janon Frei, a 50 year old woman from jasper, Georgia in the Southern United States, is a dog lover who regularly enters her Jack Russell Terriers in dog shows.
Right after the Septemeber 17th, 2014 Powerball drawing, Ms. Frei was busy preparing for a dog show and completely forgot to check her ticket.
But, after she arrived at the dog show, she checked her Facebook news feed and saw the winning PowerBall numbers posted. It seemed to her that the numbers looked familiar.
She decided to check the numbers after she got back home, but but realizing that a lot of money might be at stake, went ahead and compared her ticket to the winning numbers.
To her joy, she had matched 5 of the 6 numbers for a $1 million prize, but this was doubled to $2 million because she had selected the Power Play option on her Quick Pick ticket.
A Registered Nurse and mother of 3, Ms. Frei plans to pay off her home mortgage and auto loan.
