Karen Guilbeault won $50,000 playing Powerball.

She stopped by a Safeway in Seattle to buy a soft drink when she decided to buy a ticket, a media release stated.

“The line to check out at Safeway was so long and the Powerball Jackpot was so high that I figured I’d purchase a ticket while my husband and I were waiting,” she said in the release.

She doesn’t know how she will be using the winnings yet but said in the release she will share with her family and siblings.
