Man Won $18 Million Jackpot After 30 Years Playing The Same Numbers
A 61-year-old man from the US seems to have been blessed by Lady Luck after winning $18.4 million from the lottery. But it is his consistency that surprised people the most.
30 years with the same number series
The new multimillionaire who comes from Michigan has decided to stay anonymous, as per a press release.
The jackpot winner reportedly shared with the statewide gaming board,
“I HAVE BEEN PLAYING THIS SET OF NUMBERS SINCE 1991 AND HAVE RARELY MISSED A DRAWING.”
The winning numbers were 03-05-10-20-28-31 and it was put down in the first row by the man.
This is the lucky papar and number series that won the man the jackpot he always wanted.
According to Fox News, the man bagged his huge jackpot after buying the series at a grocery store in Prudenville, Michigan on June 23rd.
He told Michigan Lottery,
“I CHECKED MY NUMBERS BEFORE I WENT TO BED THE NIGHT OF THE DRAWING. WHEN I RECOGNIZED THE SET OF NUMBERS, I CHECKED MY TICKET OVER AT LEAST A DOZEN TIMES. I WAS SHOCKED.”
What the player is going to do with his money
After taxes, he will spare his money with his family and for charity causes.
Also according to Fox, he will receive $11.7 million after calculating all the taxes.
The winner also said that he is going to split a part of his winnings with his family as well as charitable causes. He still cannot believe that he has won that big, saying,
“It still hasn’t sunk in that I won. “I am so glad I decided to stick with this set of numbers!”
