Who knew a simple milk errand would turn out to be a rare chance to win $1 million?
Dennis Willoughby of North Chesterfield, Virginia, went to a local 7-Eleven to buy chocolate milk for his children. He also decided to pick up a scratch-off lottery ticket, according to Virginia Lottery officials.
again a beautiful story that brings a great prize for a man who will remember all his life this connection between milk, baby and prize. Such a thing is a happy life story and he brought her a fatter wallet. It's very nice.
what an incredible story of this man, who would have thought that he went to buy chocolate milk and ends up winning 1 million dollars, luck sometimes happens in the least thought moments, and this man is very lucky, also wanted to emphasize that the 2nd option I think is the most reasonable, although much tax charged by the United States, an abuse.
what a crazy story!go buy chocolate milk,buy a scratch ticket when you are there and win 1 million dollars! and whats even better,story got bonus for his win,great 10000 dollars !great story for all of them!
that's right my friend, these are stories that when they are told to you you don't believe it, it seems that it is taken out of a movie, but it is real friends, the least thought things happen, and sometimes we can't explain it, but if you can enjoy it, good luck to all this new year, and congratulations to this winner.
even though we didn't win it, it feels good when you see that normal people win money, they deserve it, sometimes things happen for a reason, what a great prize he got, who would have thought what would happen to him, sometimes luck comes to you at the least expected moment.
The man was a fool not to take the full $1 000 000 payout prize paid out over a 30 year period. it would have been a monthly income which he could count on for the next 30 years. It would have been a check for $2777.78 every month deposited into his account for 360 months. There would have been no way for him to piss it all away in the next 12-18 months like 94% of lotto winners. The bank would have gladly given him credit for a new house or truck. congrats on his win but he was a fool, I wish him luck. Ronin
Yeah,we talked about that in some other threads,for other winner and how that is maybe better optio,especially when amount is bigger! In other thread man los 30 % of winning,instead to do it like you say,to get money per year,month,whatever,but people want money right away,to buy house,car,to travel!
A nice story with a valuable outcome either way. It’s a bit of a con prize though isn’t it. You win a million dollars but cant have it unless you live for another 30 years. However, the choice of whether to take a lump sum now of a reduced amount (before taxes) which even with a modest 2% increase in value through investment of the whole sum would just about make it up to $1 million if you didn’t spend anything for 30 years seems a bit cheeky on the promoters part.
Taking the $33,333.00 a year for 30 years sounds like a sound decision of guaranteed income as long as you either live for 30 years or the money can be claimed by your estate upon death. You only need to do 20 years to equal the amount that you would get as a lump sum.
Either way, a nice prize but a difficult decision to maximise the benefit of it.
What an impressive story of this man who would have thought that he went to buy chocolate milk and ended up winning a million dollars that totally changed his life sometimes luck comes when one does not expect it we start with positive news this year
