Two friends who purchased a lottery ticket then totally forgot they did, recently won a cool $1 million.
23 days after buying a Powerball lottery ticket in North Charleston, South Carolina, USA, two friends (who opted to remain anonymous) came across the usa lotto tickets that they had stashed in one of winners girlfriends car’s cup holder.
They decided to double check it long after the draw took place and got the shock of their lives when it was a winning lottery ticket and was worth a massive $1 million.
Unbeknown to them they had won the $1 million in the Powerball draw that took place on January 6th. It was only on January 29th that they realised the winning Powerball lottery ticket had been casually lying around in the cup holder.
They bought the Powerball lottery ticket from The Spinx #351 store on W Montague Avenue in North Charleston.
They matched the five main numbers 12, 29, 30, 33 and 61 in the January 6th Powerball draw, just missing out on winning the jackpot. Had they also had the Powerball number itself which was 26, they would have won a whole lot more. But, $1 million is definitely not something to scoff at and will change their lives substantially.
The store they purchased the winning Powerball lottery ticket from will also receive their commission from South Carolina lottery officials, worth $10,000.
So many people buy Powerball lottery tickets, especially when the jackpot soars to near record-breaking jackpot amounts, but as we’ve seen time and time again, not many offline lottery players actually double check their tickets to see if they have won.
Which once again brings us to just how amazing it is to buy usa lottery tickets online. Not only is it impossible to misplace your ticket or worst case scenario, lose the ticket, online lottery players will also receive an automated result mailer informing them of the latest winning lottery numbers for the draw they purchased a ticket for. The mailer will also reflect any matches they may have had, which makes life so much easier.
