A resident of the American region of Grand Strand, South Carolina, bought a lottery ticket to dispel boredom and hit the jackpot. Reported by the news agency UPI…
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, said that he bought an instant lottery ticket for $ 10 (736 rubles), as he was bored and wanted to entertain himself with something.
The American erased the protective layer and found that he had won 375 thousand dollars (27.6 million rubles). “I was shocked. I constantly got up and looked into the closet to make sure the ticket was still there, ”he said.
The winner did not realize how lucky he was, even after arriving at the lottery headquarters to collect the winnings. “I was shaking when I stood in line for money,” he said.
The man has not yet decided what to do with the winnings. “While I’m trying to enjoy the moment,” he stressed.
Earlier it was reported that a resident of the Canadian village of Ennismore, Ontario, played the lottery with the same numbers for five years and won more than 165 thousand Canadian dollars (9.6 million rubles). The woman noted that the drawing took place in September last year, but she did not know about her victory for a long time.
