Who knew that delivering pizzas could bless you with such a massive lottery prize? Joseph Carrillo is a newfound millionaire and doesn’t need to be delivering any more pizzas for a long time, if ever again!
Joseph is from Hemet in California, USA, and he is used to getting cash tips, as well as other tips or ‘life hacks’. On a lucky day, one of his co-workers offered him some advice on how to win the lottery. Joseph gladly took the advice, and he went on to win $1.2 million in the Set For Life scratchcard game!
Joseph was beginning to feel immense frustration when seeing his Pizza Hut co-worker win endless $100 scratch card wins. “I was getting frustrated with the guy! I’m moving, I need the money!!” he laughed. He sucked up his envy and pride and asked his co-worker what his secret was and what tips he could give him to increase his luck, too.
On a day that Joseph had off from work, he determinedly headed over to the Paradise Express Liquor & Market in Hemet and bought three of the new Set For Life scratch cards. It just so happened that his final ticket was one of the tickets that blessed him with the opportunity to win $4,000 a month for the next 25 years of his life!
Joseph’s win is the recent big one in California after Jack Long took home a $60 million Powerball jackpot. “If I’d won $50 it would have been great,” he said. “I’m tickled, I’m flabbergasted, I’m waiting for my heart to explode,” he added.
Joseph is 31-years-old and he is a single father. He wants to move out of his current home because he needs to find a cheaper place to live. He told lottery officials that the day he won was when he was down to his last $100, which had all come from pizza delivery tips.
It was his co-worker who gave him the really useful tip, though. “He told me, ‘Pull the trigger man, just do it (buy the scratch card). I looked forward to this year being a new start and this is the greatest start I could ever ask for,” he explained.
Joseph chose the cash option and will, therefore, receive $696,000 before taxes. He plans to go on holiday with his daughter and clear all his debts.
