Abel Aguado-Belmudez checked his $100,000 Cashword instant Lottery ticket very carefully before allowing himself to believe that he had won the big prize of $100,000!
When asked about his reaction to winning such a windfall, Aguado-Belmudez states that he “almost fell down.”
Aguado-Belmudez, who has been living with relatives, intends to buy his own home with the money.
The winning ticket was sold at Meijer #26 located at 0550 Baldwin St. in Jenison.
