I rarely buy lottery tickets, but when the jackpot gets really high I’ll waste a buck for one ticket. More than once I’ve read where a lottery was won by purchasing just one ticket. This guy bought more than one, but his timing couldn’t have been better.
Seems Joselito Dilone recently got laid off as a construction worker and bought a scratch off ticket. The ticket was a $5 winner and Dilone turned around and bought 5 more tickets. One of those was a winner and Dilone will get a lump sum payment of $40K plus $2K a week for the rest of his life.
May he live long.
