A resident of the American city of Greenville, South Carolina, drove the key to wealth in a car for a week and did not know about it, according to the UPI publication.

As a result, the man won a prize of 500 thousand dollars (36.1 million rubles).
“This is some kind of sur. This is the only way I can describe it, ”he said.
The winner decided not to wait any longer and immediately went to the lottery headquarters to collect the winnings. The store where the American bought the lucky ticket also received a reward of five thousand dollars (361.1 thousand rubles).
