A retired plumber from Maryland, USA, has just made his dream come true after becoming the winner of a stunning international lottery jackpot. The plumber from Mechanicsville got a phone call while he and his wife were visiting a friend. Were they really the winners of $775,000 in the August 22nd Multi-Match draw? They were eager to get home to find out if it was all true.
The plumber wishes to remain anonymous for his family’s security. The winner’s lucky ticket was bought at McKay’s Food & Drug Store in Charlotte Hall where he usually goes to buy his groceries. Because the winner and his wife had been out of town visiting their friend, it took them a few days to realise their tremendous luck. The phone call they received came from a friend who heard that a big winning ticket was sold at the very same grocery store that they frequent.
Many lottery winning couples have discovered their big wins while on holiday or visiting family and friends. The anticipation was a killer for this couple, though, because they had left their lottery ticket at home and therefore couldn’t check if they were the winners. “We were joking about the fact that it could be us. I’ve been playing Multi-Match forever, playing the same set of numbers,” said the husband.
It was the couple’s quick-pick line that won them the jackpot, however, and not the pre-selected number he usually plays. That just goes to show that you should never be afraid to mix up your routine because it might just bring you immense luck!
The day after they heard the news, they returned home. They instantly ran to check the ticket. The wife was packing her husband’s lunch for the following day when her husband shouted, “Honey, it’s us!” She didn’t believe him at first. “He had to literally show me the ticket,” said the wife.
The couple kept their $775,000 a secret until they had everything verified and sorted out at the lottery headquarters. To break the news to their family and friends, they held a pizza party! They have chosen the cash lump sum option and are now using the windfall so that he and his wife can retire. They are also giving some money to their kids and remodelling their old kitchen. Some charitable donations are also in store for the happy couple.
