US Lottery Jackpot

Luckily it’s Maray! you know what A resident of Towson, Maryland, USA, was preparing for an urgent surgery when he won the lottery. The peculiarity of his luck was that Pramad Vashat (mistakenly) had bought three tickets of the same number and all three had won the lottery! According to a report published in the UK newspaper Mirror, an unnamed resident of Towson bought many tickets and won prizes for all the tickets. According to reports, a Towson resident accidentally bought three tickets for the same draw last week.

What happened was that he had forgotten that he bought one ticket in the morning by noon and went to Pick 5 Lottery Center in the evening and bought another ticket.

Meanwhile, his wife, who did not know that her husband bought tickets of the same draw twice, went to the lottery center and bought one ticket herself. Later, he bought three tickets of the same draw for the husband and wife and complained that the money was wasted.

They didn’t even think about their blunder hitting the jackpot. But the couple couldn’t believe their luck when a combination of three tickets with the same number 51359 won them a jackpot of $150,000 (roughly Rs.1,22,82,030).

In a statement given to UPI, this anonymous person said, ‘When I accidentally bought three tickets at one time, I had no faith that all three numbers would hit the jackpot.’

Surprisingly, this is not the first time that this Maryland senior has won a large sum of money in the lottery. According to a report, he won a big prize in a four-ball game a couple of years ago. What is even more remarkable and ironic is that even then it was a coincidence that he got the prize.

While the draw was taking place, the Towson resident offered to place a bet on 1979, the year his daughter was born. But the booking clerk mistook the number given by him and gave him a ticket with the number 1997. It was 1997 when he saw which number ticket hit the jackpot.

‘I went to bet on 1979 which is my daughter’s birthday. But the store person misheard what I said and gave me ticket number 1997. When I came back home, do you know the number that hit the jackpot? 1997!,’ he told the newspaper.

He asked what he will do with the jackpot money he has won, he said that he has decided to give a small part of it to his daughter.
