Frederick Man Loses His Cool after Big Powerball Win

Congratulations to this Frederick couple on their $50,016 Powerball win.

Lucky player claims $50,016 third-tier prize

When Edward Rybolt Jr. of Frederick realized he and his wife won $50,016 playing Powerball, he recalls being overwhelmed with excitement.

One Sunday after church, he visited his favorite Lottery retailer to buy a $10 ticket for the Oct. 29 drawing. His lucky retailer is Edgemere Convenience store located at 7308 North Point Road in Baltimore. When he scanned the ticket after the drawing, he couldn’t believe Lottery luck had really come his way.

“I just lost it,” the 51-year-old said, recalling the moments after his amazing discovery. Lucky Edward gave a special shout out to his wife for playing a vital role in helping select numbers for the ticket. He attributes his lucky win to his wife and to lots of prayers.

Edward plans to use his winnings to pay off bills, build up the family’s savings and perhaps enjoy a night out on the town with his wife. During the day, the small-business owner runs a company that offers landscaping and power washing services.
