PowerballPowerball: Visiting guest helps family win $200,000

For the Cremer family of Nampa, Idaho, this Thanksgiving was one to remember, thanks to a visiting brother-in-law who got them to go in on buying a Powerball ticket.

Greg Cremer and his wife and brother-in-law Paul Moore won $200,000 on a winning Powerball ticket. Moore was visiting from San Diego for a family Thanksgiving.

The Cremers usually don't play Powerball, but every time Moore visits he gets them to go in on tickets. They purchased a $10 Quickpick at the Gem Stop on Midland Boulevard in Nampa on Wednesday.

The winning numbers were 03, 11, 13, 20, 40, and the Powerball was 20. All of their numbers matched, except the Powerball.

"This was a wonderful Thanksgiving for our family," Greg Cremer said. "We can't wait until Paul visits us again."

"We've had many close calls to winning the big jackpot recently, so it's great to have another big winner from Idaho," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery director.

The Cremers' $200,000 winning Powerball ticket was the third $200,000 winning Powerball ticket purchased in Idaho since Veterans Day. It's also the fifth six-figure or higher prize won in Idaho since October.

Congrats to them! I bet they are glad that their brother-in-law convinced them to buy some tickets. Yes Nod

        Good for them -

        I don't get this thought- from the OP:

        The Cremers usually don't play Powerball, but every time Moore visits he gets them to go in on tickets. They purchased a $10 Quickpick at the Gem Stop on Midland Boulevard in Nampa on Wednesday.

        The winning numbers were 03, 11, 13, 20, 40, and the Powerball was 20. All of their numbers matched, except the Powerball.

        So they win $200,000 and still he has to come visit before they'll play?

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          maybe they feel he is their good luck charm?  Just maybe he is.
