Betty Cook matched all five of the main numbers, but failed to get the Powerball on Saturday, August 2, 2014. She remained oblivious to her lotto success until her daughter heard a radio announcement about an unclaimed prize won on a Danville ticket.
"She said mama where is that ticket at? Let me check it," Betty recalled. "She sat down and she pulled it up on her phone and she checked it and she jumped up and about gave me a heart attack she said mama you won you won. I was just stunned."
As for her plans for the money, Betty said she intends to pay some bills and help out her daughters.
