Marilyn Managault Hometown: Lake Charles Game Played: Powerball Amount Won:
Most Louisiana Lottery players react immediately when they've won. For Marilyn Managault of Lake Charles, it took a few days.
"I didn't realize I won $20,000 from Powerball until five days later," exclaimed Managault, who purchased her ticket from Calcasieu Exxon in Lake Charles. "It really hit me, and I'm so excited!"
Her ticket matched four of the five white ball numbers drawn plus the red Powerball number to win $10,000 for the Aug. 20 drawing. She won $7 on a second ticket. However, Managault purchased the Power Play option on both of her tickets and multiplied her winnings by two when the Power Play number "2" was selected during the drawing.
