Wins $50,000 playing Golden Ticket Scratch-Off
The 68-year-old retired truck driver arrived at Lottery Headquarters still skeptical about his win. Even as the paperwork confirming his Lottery luck was completed, he expressed his bewilderment.
“When I scratched the ticket there in the store I was pretty sure I’d won,” the winner told officials. “But when I showed it to my friend and he told me it was for $50,000, I didn’t believe him.” The store’s clerk assured him that his Golden Ticket was a big winner, but even that didn’t convince him. “I told them both that if they were pulling my leg that there would be trouble.”
