The attendant, who is from Salt Lake City, was delayed on her December 28 flight to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. He bought a Powerball ticket at a convenience store near the airport and won $50,000 for his January 1 drawing. The Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

“I’ve traveled all over the world, but by far the best place is Hebron, Kentucky,” the attendant, who wished to remain anonymous, told lottery officials in a news release.

Utah does not have a state lottery, but the attendant buys tickets while traveling. At that time the Powerball jackpot was close to $500 million.

“I went to the store and while checking out, I thought, ‘I’m going to buy three sets of numbers for three drawings,'” the flight attendant told lottery officials.

The attendant chose a quick pickup option and put the ticket away. When he checked the ticket several days later, the man realized he had matched four numbers and the Powerball.

The number drawn on January 1 was 12-28-39-48-50 and the Powerball number was 7. That person didn’t have the number 28 only.

The attendant posted on Reddit that he was only one number away from the big prize, but one user pointed out that he was still a winner. The Herald-Leader reported that the man checked in, and of course, he was richer than $50,000.

“It’s crazy,” the attendant told the lottery officials. “I have never had so much money in my bag. it is amazing.”

According to the Herald-Leader, he put his winning ticket on his refrigerator and switched with a co-worker so he could return to Kentucky and get cash in the ticket.

The newspaper reported that the man received $35,500 after taxes. He said he would likely use the money for a down payment on a house.
