Woman Wins $3.3 Million Lottery Jackpot Days After Quitting Her Job as Nursing Assistant
Yahnique S. of Colorado said she plans to pay bills and make home improvements with the $3,312,287 she was presented last Friday.
Winning the lottery couldn't have come at a better time for this Colorado woman.
Yahnique S. of Aurora quit her job last month. But just days later, she won the $3.3 million Lotto jackpot.
The mother-of-three explained in a press release she resigned from her job as a nursing assistant after feeling burned out.
"My last day was January 17, but I didn’t have anything lined up yet," she said.
Yahnique, who has been playing the Lotto for more than 30 years, said she purchased a ticket at a local supermarket two weeks ago.
When she and her husband checked online for the winning numbers, they were shocked to find the numbers matched up to their ticket: 10-14-25-30-31-32.
"I was highly suspicious but then I thought, there’s no way she could mock up their whole website," her husband Bruce said. "She knows her way around the computer, but not that well."
Yahnique was presented with the cardboard check, indicating she had won $3,312,287 last Friday, and said she plans to pay bills and make home improvements with her first several payments.
