26 Year Old Single Mum Wins $188 Million in Lottery


Marie Holmes, a mother of four  from North Carolina, USA bought one of the three winning tickets estimated to be about $564.1 million.

Excerpt from yahoo news ...
Television news station WECT reported the numbers on 26-year-old Marie Holmes' ticket matched those from the Wednesday night jackpot drawing, the third largest in the game's history and one of the largest lottery jackpots ever in the United States.
In a television interview, Holmes, who lives in Shallotte, said she has four children and had been looking for work. She said she was grateful for the chance to provide more for them.
"I don't think it's really hit me yet," she said. "I guess when it hits my account, that's when it's really going to hit me."
North Carolina lottery officials said on Friday they had not yet received the winning ticket, sold at a convenience store in the coastal town of Shallotte.
