Lexington Man and Co-Worker Win $50 Million Powerball Jackpot

Winning ticket was sold at the Shell station on Waltham Street in Lexington.

Dec. 12, 2012 was more than a once-in-a-lifetime date, it was indeed a lucky day for co-workers Reginald LeBlanc of Lexington and Rosa DeLeon of Arlington who reportedly are set to split a $50 million Powerball prize. 

LeBlanc and DeLeon purchased a ticket yesterday at the Lexington Shell station on Waltham Street that matched all six-numbers drawn last night, according to the Mass Lottery website and the organization’s Twitter feed.

The winning numbers were 08-10-25-36-44, Power Ball 28, the Lottery website said. An official announcement will be made at 1:30 p.m. today at a press conference at lottery headquarters.

Powerball winners can choose between annual payments over 29 years or a lump sum of $33 million before taxes.

According to Boston.com, Adam Muise, the storeowner where the winning ticket was sold, said the main claiming to be the winner was back at the store today, Dec. 13.

He really didn’t say anything, just stood off to the side,” Muise said. “He was really calm.”

LeBlanc and DeLeon aren’t the only winners here.

According to the Lottery website, the storeowner will also benefit from this jackpot win by receiving a $50,000 commission, the top retailer commission offered in Massachusetts, for selling the lucky ticket

Good for them! I hope the money doesn't end up ruining their lives, as has happened to so many lottery winners in the past.

I hope nobody tries to swindle them out of their winnings. There are lots of thieves and liars out there who would try to take advantage of them.
