Bought a ticket from a local store
According to the Washington Lottery, the couple bought the lottery ticket at a local store. At the prize draw, the couple found they had won a prize money of 28,000 rupees ($360). After this, the husband again went to the store to get the money for the ticket amount. But when he reached the store, he told that the prize money was high and he would have to go to the lottery office for it.
When the manager told, he found out how big the amount is
In fact, by now the husband was confused and did not know that he had hit the jackpot. This was because the local store had a reward limit of up to $600. So the person thought that his prize money might be a little more than that. He found out when the store manager told him how much money he had actually won.
2.80 crore lottery
The store manager told him that he won not $360, but $360,000 (208 million Indian Rupees). As soon as he came to know about such a huge amount, the person started shouting in joy. He said that he is going to run immediately and cash this amount. According to local media reports, the couple’s happiness knew no bounds.
What will the couple do with the amount?
The Washington Lottery, citing local media reports, said the couple first handed over a $10,000 check to their son and daughter-in-law, who were on their way to give birth to their child. The couple told lottery officials they were going to use the remaining money as a retirement fund for themselves.
The big lottery has already started
However, this is not the first time a couple has won the big lottery. Earlier, a couple had won a lottery worth Rs 39 lakh. The couple from Missouri had been trying their luck in the lottery for the past 30 years. What was special was that the couple was always using the same number that they had chosen together three decades ago. Finally, thirty years later, his luck caught up with him.
