  • A Lucky Stop for a Hollywood Tour Guide Leads to a $900,000 POWERBALL® Win!

  • For Sonny Alexander, it was just another day of work in Hollywood. See, Sonny is a tour guide who shows tourists how the rich and famous live. Little did he know, his stop at Shelly Café, which is located at 7013 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, would lead to fortune and fame for the tour bus operator.

    Two tickets in the May 4 POWERBALL draw had the five winning numbers of 26, 36, 40, 7, and 12, but missed the Powerball number 17. That means the two winners split the prize of $1,835,712, making each winning ticket worth $917,856.

    Sonny says he was just killing some time recently while the tourists took pictures in Hollywood when he decided to purchase 10 POWERBALL tickets. “I purchased the tickets and didn’t think anything of it,” he said. But then later when he decided to check his tickets at the same spot, during the same tour, Sonny realized he had won $917,856!

    The tour guide plans to spend his winnings on higher, spiritual aspirations. “I am going to buy a church! I have been praying to God to get money to buy a Greek Orthodox Church,” Sonny said.
