Grandma Wins The Powerball Jackpot

One in 175 million.

Those were the odds stacked against a Rhode Island grandma.

But 81-year-old Louise White of Newport had lady luck on her side.

She won the Powerball jackpot of 336-point-four million dollars.

Well, I want to say that, um, I am very happy, and I'm very proud and this will make my family very happy. We are truly blessed. Thank you.

White took the lump sum payment of 210-million dollars or 30 annuity payments spread out over 29 years.
