It was just another day at work for Jerry Nitschke, until he took a lunch break and nipped in to buy himself a scratchcard…
Nitschke bought the “Extreme Crossword” scratchcard ticket on August 8 from a local Safeway while he was taking a break. He first thought he had got lucky and won $500 and was pretty happy with his win for some hours.
It was only much later that he double checked the ticket again and realised to his astonishment that he had in fact won a whopping $150,000.
“I drive a bus in West Seattle and decided to pick up a Scratch ticket on my break. When I scratched it, I thought it was for $500! I didn’t realize until a few hours later the ticket was for way more,” he shared with a laugh.
It seems as though Jerry has added his bit to the jobs with the most lotto luck and joined the ranks of bus drivers who have won the lottery. Just like the Corby 12 syndicate who won the £38 million jackpot back in 2013 and each took home a very cool £3 million each. They are joined by Sean Lloyed from Manchester who also won $1.2m on the UK Lotto jackpot earlier this year.
Bus drivers are lucky
When Jerry told his friend, Joe the good news, all he said was, "Oh boy, here we go again." It’s not the first time his friends have gone through this. Back in December of 2012, Jerry won $50,000 on another scratch ticket.
When asked how he plans to spend the money, Nitschke came up with a few ideas, but was most excited about making his favourite hobby a little more spectacular.
“Maybe I’ll buy a new hot rod, a Chevy El Camino! I’ll absolutely use some of the winnings to work on restoring some of the cars I already own.”
