A trip to a convenience store in Vineland, New Jersey has made someone's life $100,000 more convenient thanks to the purchase of a winning lottery ticket.

Good news like this keeps me hopeful and makes me a believer! Just like that 90s Nicolas Cage/Bridget Fonda romcom 'It Could Happen to You'.

This latest very profitable Powerball ticket matched four white balls from the Wednesday, May 8, 2024 drawing, and the Powerball, according to NJ.com, to the tune of one hundred thousand smackaroos!

The May 8th Powerball winning numbers were: 07, 41, 43, 44 and 51. The Powerball was 05 with 2x Powerplay.
