The nightmarish conversations spawned by those billion-dollars strong Powerball shenanigans will soon ride swiftly off into the sunset, given the fact that three winning tickets were announced earlier this week. However, for one of presumably millions of people who didn't nab any portion of that $1.6 billion haul, the impact of this historic Powerball will likely be felt for many months to come.
"Please help me and my family as we have [exhausted] all of our funds," a Powerball non-winner named Cinnamon Nicole wrote when announcing a GoFundMe page aimed at bouncing back from a perplexing investment, according to VIBE. "We spent all of our money on lottery tickets (expecting to win the 1.5 billion) and are now in dire need of cash. With your small donation of at least $1.00, a like and one share, I’m certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this [loss] and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again!"
At time of publication, the GoFundMe page would appear to have been given an official "Nope." from site administrators:
Winning tickets were sold in Los Angeles, Florida, and Tennessee earlier this week, with the Associated Press reporting that lottery officials had confirmed the identity of the Tennessee area winner early Friday afternoon.
