The winning ticket was purchased from 54-year-old Philip Chipeva from Southend Bay, Michigan. "After I bought the tickets, I put them in my truck," Chippewa told the Powerball website. "I ran out to look at them and didn't have to look past the front row to see that I was the winner. Of course, my wife and my son thought I was playing a trick, so my son pulled his phone numbers and read them aloud while Zora [his wife] and I looked at the ticket together. While he did, we both had tears in our eyes.
"We called a family meeting and told all seven of our children the good news. There was a lot of emotion in this room because we always put our family first and it wasn't always easy, but they were all so happy for us.
"With seven children and 21 grandchildren, I have always said that I may not have the most money, but I am rich in family. Now I have all the money I will ever need and I can help my family for generations. It means everything to me. "
