North Carolina Woman Wins Powerball Jackpot

Struggling Mother of 4 Has Winning Powerball Ticket Worth $188 Million

Marie Holmes of Shallotte, NC, may have scared her kids when she screamed in excitement, but since she had pretty good reason for the outburst, we think they'll forgive her. On Wednesday, Holmes came forward with one of three winning Powerball lottery tickets, worth about $188 million. "I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I saw the ticket and checked it," Holmes told local news. The mother of four children — one with cerebral palsy — was forced to quit her jobs at Walmart and McDonald's in order to care for her children full time, but it seems like things are definitely looking up for her. Watch the video and find out Marie's big plans for her millions.
