The retiree from Morley plays the Lottery every day, but he doesn’t always play the same game. On this particular day, he saw one Lottery ticket that seemed to be protruding from the roll; sticking out all by itself. He decided he had to have that ticket, and bought the $5 Wild Time Mania instant game ticket. He also purchased two more of the tickets. “I scratched them all, but I saved the “special” ticket for last, he said.”
The player (who chooses to remain anonymous) could barely believe it when he was done scratching, and had matched one of his numbers and one of the winning numbers to win the $300k jackpot!
He plans to buy a new car and make some investments, that he hopes will help with his grandchildren’s college costs.
The winning ticket was sold at Wee Bee’s Party Store located at 139 S. Cass St. in Morley.
