A Marquette woman is looking forward to an earlier retirement after winning $100,000 playing Powerball.
Gail Zorza, 62, matched four white balls and the Powerball – 10-11-47-55-58 PB: 26 – Saturday to win $50,000. Thanks to the Powerplay, her prize was multiplied by two for a $100,000 prize She bought her winning ticket at Cal’s Party Store, located at 123 Genesee Street in Marquette.
“My husband and I have a set of numbers we play for each drawing,” said Zorza. “My husband saw the numbers after the drawing and then went to check them at the store. When he called to tell me the ticket was a winner I had a hard time believing him.
“I’m going to get my husband a new truck and then save the rest for my retirement. I have been slowly cutting my hours back, and now I will be able to stop working even sooner!”
Zorza visited Lottery headquarters Tuesday to claim her big prize.
