Linda Windey, a New York native who was staying with relatives in Ohio due to her temporary job with eBay, purchased three Powerball tickets at Cincinnati South Travel Center on Richmond Road in Walton, KY. She discovered one of them matched five numbers in Wednesday's record $1.6 billion drawing after checking the winning numbers when she got home from work.
And in one of the most interesting twists to a winner story we've ever seen, Linda noticed the Bloodmobile parked in front of lottery HQ this morning for a regularly-scheduled employee blood drive. Saying she felt like she needed to give back "after having a million dollars fall out of the sky", after her news conference she tucked her $1 million check under her arm, marched out to the Bloodmobile and donated a pint of blood.
