10/31/2006 Louisiana Woman Claims $15 Million Louisiana Powerball Jackpot!
Jane C. Jabert stepped out of a stretch Hummer limousine with 10 close family members and couldn’t help but dance around on the sidewalk outside of the Louisiana Powerball Lottery’s downtown headquarters. The 67-year-old Louisiana native,
held the sole winning ticket of the $15 million Sept. 30 Powerball jackpot.
Jabert, who said playing the Powerball Lottery and dancing were her two favorite hobbies, chose her own Powerball numbers regularly, sometimes using birthdays or other specific numbers that gave her a good feeling. It turned out that her hunch was worth millions. Although she had been playing a specific set of five numbers over the past three months, she changed her mind about the sixth number, the Powerball number, at the last minute and won the jackpot.
I can dance my life away now! exclaimed Jabert, who admitted her new millionaire status still doesn’t seem real. I’m still just Jane. With her winnings, Jabert said she plans to pay off all her debts, help her family and give to charity. Although she’s always dreamed of driving a pink Cadillac, she said she is hesitant about making the purchase. They use a lot of gas, don’t they? she said.
