Lucky Man Finds $1 Million Lotto Ticket

As our loyal lottery news readers will know, we have often discussed the benefits of playing the lotto online. One of the big advantages includes the fact that you never need to worry about forgetting to check your lotto ticket.

Ron Yurcus from Chicago, USA, very nearly learned this lesson the hard way. He had been accumulating lotto tickets on his desk at home, simply forgetting to check the winning numbers after each draw. One day while moving his computer he decided to finally go through his pile of old lotto tickets, with surprising results.

Ron checked the winning numbers for his various tickets online and discovered that one of them had in fact matched the first 5 balls in the August 22nd USA Powerball lottery. A draw that had taken place nearly 2 months prior!

When his wife got home he got her to double check the ticket and “just about screamed” when he realized he was now $1 million Dollars richer.

Ron is a retired hospice chaplain who purchased his winning Powerball ticket at a B.P. petrol station. He is planning on investing the money, donating to charity and sharing it with his three children and four grandchildren. Ron is also planning a trip to Lithuania to visit the homeland of his grandparents.

Ron has the following piece of very apt advice for fellow lottery players:

“Check your old tickets – you could have a big winner there!”

When you play lotto online with you can be certain that all entries are checked automatically against the winning numbers after each draw. You will receive a results email directly into your inbox after each draw. For any winning amounts over 200 GBP you will also receive a telephone call to notify you.

The moral of this episode is, "DO Not check the results for some days unless you have bought it online when Hugelottos themselves will phone you up"
