Mass. Couple Claims $23.9M Powerball Prize

Gambling-Powerball
STERLING, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts couple has claimed their share of a $122 million Powerball jackpot.

On Thursday, Maureen and Stephen Hinkley of Sterling went to state lottery headquarters to claim a lump sum payment of $23.9 million after taxes. A Nebraska couple won the other half of the Dec. 11 drawing.

Maureen Hinckley told the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester the drawing came two days before her 58th birthday. She’s played the numbers, a combination of family birth dates, since 2010 when Powerball came to Massachusetts.

The Hinkleys have three daughters and a son. They say they have no immediate plans for the money beyond taking care of their children and grandchildren.

Maureen Hinkley told the newspaper she figures she won the money for a reason “and hopefully I’ll figure out what to do with it.”
