A very lucky lotto player from Queens, New York, has just become $10 million richer on a scratch card jackpot. The chef told lottery officials that he even had a feeling that he would win. Read further for his full story.
The chef’s name is Chang Tong Chen and he is 51-years-old. He explained to New York lottery officials that he was in the process of cooking a Sunday dinner on the 4th of October when he decided to quickly pop into Primacare Plus Pharmacy which was close to his home, in order to buy some lotto tickets.
He had a good feeling that he would win that night. He chose a $10,000 A Week For Life ticket. He said that he felt attracted to that particular ticket because it had his lucky number ‘8’ on it. “I felt like I was going to win,” he admitted to officials at a press conference where they presented him with his $10 million
He added further, “I felt good at the time,” but in fact, that ticket with his lucky number 8 on it wasn’t the lucky one. So he instead bought the next ticket in the roll because that one had the number 7 on it. 7 is his son’s favourite number.
He scratched the ticket off there in the store and Mr. Chen ran straight home to his family to show them the wonderful news. “He knew he won but wasn’t sure about the amount,” said Mr. Chen’s 16-year-old son when his father returned home clutching the ticket worth $10,000 a week, for the rest of his life.
The confounded New York Chef chose to take home his winnings in the form of a one-time lump-sum payment worth $5.1 million after taxes. The son said that his father is not a squanderer and will definitely spend the money wisely. Mr. Chen wants to buy a new house, go on a well-deserved vacation with his wife and put money aside for a comfortable retirement.
Congratulations to Mr. Chen for acting on his gut and putting his lucky lotto feeling to good use. When that lucky feeling strikes, you have to act FAST because it can go away just as quickly and suddenly as it appeared.
