Nine years ago this week, attorney Stephanie LaBorde claimed a $40.6 million February 12 Powerball jackpot win for her client. The client chose to remain anonymous. She was at the time a 55 year old resident of Baton Rouge who owned a government relations practice.
The winner credited her dog for the big win. She had adopted a abandoned Labrador retriever, gave her a better life, and believed that she gave her luck playing Powerball. “She’s convinced the dog was her good luck talisman,” said the attorney. She marked only the ninth Louisianan Powerball jackpot winner. Her attorney told news that the “winner was a regular Lottery player who purchased $5 dollars worth of Powerball tickets every Saturday. ” She chose the cash option, which after taxes was worth sixteen million dollars.
