Dad Informs Kids About Lotto Win Via A Text Link

How do you contact your children these days? You text them right? An Easley couple who won the Palmetto Cash 5 lottery last week thought of the perfect way to tell their kids — they texted them, and then had a little fun too.

Alfred Castle wins the lottery

Alfred Castle found out that he had won on the lottery when he double checked his lottery ticket just after the draw took place. He was at home with his wife on Tuesday, the same night as the South Carolina lottery drawing took place, when he realised that his numbers 5, 17, 29, 34 and 37 were the lucky winning numbers.

Alfred immediately screamed to his wife to quickly come and double check the numbers again as he could hardly believe what he was seeing.  She did, and also got the shock of her life when she realised just how much they had just won of the lottery.

The lottery winning couple knew that they had to tell the kids, but decided that instead of calling them, they would do what they would have more than likely have done, and well, simply sent them text.

Dad tells kids via link he won the lottery

Keeping up with technology, they first decided to forward them a link to a news story about an Easley retailer who sold a winning $100,000 ticket for the Palmetto Cash 5 game, but the winner had not yet come forward.

Fifteen minutes later, they sent a picture of Mr Castle holding his South Carolina lottery winner’s cheque!

However, despite the fun that they had breaking the news to their children, Alfred Castle and his wife said that the lotto win still doesn’t feel real.

“Winning hasn’t completely set in yet.”

The Castles are definitely planning to share the South Carolina lottery winnings with their children.

Mrs Castle immediately received a few thousand so that she can treat herself to “anything she wants,” said Alfred.

Good idea. In case the kids did not see the text for quite a while yet? Then what happens..? The parents begin to panic.
