Georgia - William and Heather ten Broeke were grocery shopping when Heather reminded her husband to buy a Powerball ticket for the Sept. 17 drawing.
"Aren't you going to get a ticket?" Mrs. ten Broeke, 38, asked.
"Without her reminding me to buy the ticket, we wouldn't have won," said Mr. ten Broeke, 46.
The ten Broekes arrived at Georgia Lottery headquarters Monday to claim the $246,764,131 million jackpot prize. They selected the cash option, which totaled $165,613,511 before taxes.
