The Lion's Share of the Jackpot

Harry Black, 66, has been playing the lotto for 35 years, and entered every draw with two tickets, each with duplicate lotto numbers. It’s a solid strategy, and to Harry’s delight it’s finally worked – he recently took home a portion of the $63 million lottery jackpot!

And not only did Harry take home one portion, but in fact he got the lion’s share of the lottery jackpot due to his strategy of buying two tickets with the same number combination, which ultimately was a winning set. Some may claim it’s just crazy to choose the same numbers but Harry’s now sitting on a $30 million fortune, so he’s pretty pleased with his lotto playing method.

“This is a wonderful surprise to all of us,” said Kevin Gass. “While it’s not known how many people buy identical lotto tickets for a draw, it is the first time in the company’s recollection that we’ve had this unique sort of win.” The winning numbers were 02, 10, 17, 19, 44 and 47.

Numbers man

What’s as astonishing as winning with two lotto tickets is the fact that Harry Black held onto his lotto-winning pair for a few weeks before claiming his lottery jackpot prize. The level-headed winner decided to take the time to make the sometimes difficult decisions regarding how he’d spend and invest his fortune. “After this is done, I’ve got to get out of Dodge and do something I’ve never done in my entire life: Go on a holiday!” Harry said.

The modest lottery jackpot winner expressed his wish for a holiday, but he won’t be retiring on his fortune despite the knowledge that he could live comfortably for the rest of his life, never having to work again. Our Harry Black certainly is a deserving recipient of this generous slice of lottery jackpot - he wishes to share his winnings with friends and family and build a home with his proceeds. “I already got enough toys,” he said at the press conference where he received his oversized lottery jackpot cheque. “I worked hard for them. Maybe I’ll have time to play with them.”

If enter every draw 14 tickets with the same number combination,each with duplicate lotto numbers,it would take about 5 years for lottery jackpot...
