This is without a doubt the greatest story in Powerball jackpot history.
Charles W. Jackson, a 66-year-old grandfather in North Carolina was the lone winner of a $344.6 million Powerball jackpot, and he picked his numbers from a damn fortune cookie.
According to CNBC, Jackson claims the winning lottery numbers were on the back of the piece of paper inside the cookie, which was given to him by his granddaughter during a recent trip to a Vietnamese restaurant.
It gets better…
Initially, Jackson didn’t see that the final digit on his ticket also matched the drawing, so he thought he’d “only” won $50,000, and not the full grand prize.
When Jackson checked the ticket a second time, he says, “I said, ‘Dang, I got them all.’”
After looking online to find the value of his grand prize, Jackson says he told his wife: “You ain’t going to believe this — I got it all.”
It still gets better.
66-year-old Jackson sounds EXACTLY like “Boom Howard” from “King of the Hill.”
It gets even better than THAT.
