FLOYD COUNTY MAN ONE NUMBER AWAY FROM WINNING MILLIONS ON POWERBALL; WINS $50,000!
August 26, 2016

The Powerball jackpot for the August 13, 2016 drawing stood at an estimated $82 million.  While there wasn’t a jackpot winner for that drawing, Beverly McGuire, of Langley, matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number to win $50,000.  This is the games third prize. 

Beverly buys his lottery tickets once a week, usually on payday.  It’s on that day that he’ll also check the tickets he’d purchased the previous week.  It was last Friday when he stopped off at Food City #458 in Pikeville to do just that.  Beverly scanned his Powerball ticket on the self-ticket checker when he read $50 on the machine.  Since the information remained for just a few seconds he scanned it a second time just to double check the amount.  Beverly then realized there were a few more zeroes behind the $50.   

“The clerk called over to me asking if I was okay, I guess from the expression on my face.”  I said, “This can’t be right, it says I won $50,000,” Beverly said.  The clerk went on to tell him that they’d sold a $50,000 ticket recently and to let him check it.  Next, the clerk told Beverly that they’d been waiting on him and then gave Beverly a high-five.    

 Beverly is already being referred to as “the Money Man” by some of his coworkers from R/S Godwin Truck Body Company.  As of right now, Beverly plans to buy a new truck with his winnings.
