Deer Hunter Hits Powerball Lottery Jackpot!

Roger Custer picked out some Powerball lottery numbers when he was on the way to go deer hunting for a week.

Roger Custer, right, and his wife accept the check from Powerball officials.

When the Bristol Township, Pa., resident got home, a friend told him a winning ticket was sold near their town. Custer asked his wife to check the numbers to see if they were millionaires.

They were.

Custer and his wife claimed the Dec. 5 Powerball prize of $33,134,526.18. He brought the ticket at Levittown News & Tobacco while picking up some things for his hunting trip. Custer also won $5 on an instant ticket and gave that to his wife. He kept the $33 million ticket in his wallet for at least five days before checking them.

“The best part about winning the Powerball jackpot is being able to take care of my family,” the retired Custer said in a statement. “It’s a good feeling to know that my family will never have to worry.”

Custer said he plans to do more hunting and fishing, which we wholeheartedly agree with!
