We’ve all seen and heard of lottery winners around the world. Lottery jackpots can grow to staggering numbers. In fact, someone recently won a huge jackpot of $522 million USD! That’s half a billion dollars won in just a couple of seconds–it doesn’t get much better than that.
The winning numbers, 1-2-4-19-29 and 20, were actually on a ticket made by Kewal Sachdev, the owner of Ernie’s Liquors in San Jose. Since this business sold the ticket, they received a one-million-dollar prize to celebrate their good fortune. In the whole of the United States, Ernie’s Liquors was the only retailer in the country to sell a ticket that matched all of the numbers. According to the L.A. Times, this had a 302.5 million in one chance of happening –talk about luck!
All winnings change per lottery. Some lotteries are slightly easier to win but have lower jackpots, and lotteries also roll over if no one wins them. This means that you can get staggering jackpots that will continue to grow as long as no one wins them. This is one of the most exciting parts of playing the lottery! Millions of dollars become even more over time!
Another example would be in Moraine, Ohio, where a convenience store won a hefty sum of $100,000 after selling a winning $143 million Mega Millions ticket in May. The store was Fat Daddy’s Road Dog and the store manager has said it’s been crazy ever since the winning was announced.
Unfortunately, no one claimed the jackpot but the store still got their reward!
It makes you think how lucky people must be to win, but it also makes you think that the more people who buy lottery tickets at a store, the higher the chances of the store owner actually winning something as well. No matter who wins, as long as the ticket was purchased from that store, the owner will get their own little bonus and there are other advantages too.
For instance, more people might come to that store to buy a lottery ticket because they think it’s good luck. In fact, some people might even return to the store and purchase other goods because they’re superstitious and believe that the store is radiating good fortune. There are plenty of good advantages to selling the winning lottery ticket, and you’ll be surprised at how much it can change not just the life of the winner, but also the store owner.
Going back to a store that sold a winning ticket can be very exciting, but standing in long queues is not. That's why playing online lotteries is such a popular option. Never leave the comfort of your home or even play while you're sitting in traffic, from the convenience to international jackpots and affordable prices, the list of reasons to play the lottery online is endless.
