Tea Shop Owner who won Rs. 6 crore and carried on working

Some lottery players love their working, like Harikumar, a humble, non-assuming man who runs a tea shop in Bangalore. A few years ago, he won Rs. 6 Crore (almost $1 million) in the Thiruvonam Bumper lottery. Now some people might have stopped working at the point, but not Harikumar. You can still find this family man at his tea shop today. The lotto win did however buy a better home for him and his family, and his children now also attend a better school. The best part however is the fact that this clever lotto winner is investing his lotto win wisely. Well done!

Scrap Dealer from Kolkata who won Rs. 17 crore

There’s no better lotto story than someone who had a tough time making a living, and then winning the lottery! Meet Jaiprakash Jaiswal. Before he won the lottery he was a poor scrap dealer based in Kolkata. But that was before he won the Super Lotto, winning a total of Rs. 17 crore! That’s $1.8 million! This is exactly what playing the lottery is about. Catapulting your life into riches!

A Heart of Gold

K. Sudhakaran runs a small shop in the state of Kerala where he sells sweets and soft drinks. He also sells lotteries. He was once asked by one of his regular customers to purchase 10 lottery tickets for him. Sudhakaran did as asked, and even before the customer had collected the lottery tickets, he found out that one of them had won the Rs. 1 Crore jackpot. Now, Sudhakaran is a poor man, who barely manages to earn a living for his family. He could have so easily kept the winning lottery ticket for himself and sold another one to his customer – and nobody would have been wiser for it. But here’s what he does – he faithfully hands over the winning lottery ticket to his customer and congratulates him on winning Rs. 1 crore! What a noble gesture! Such honesty is something unheard of, especially in a country like India.

She had no idea she had won the lottery

Sharda Rani Sinha loves playing the lottery and regularly played in the Playwin online lottery. Luck finally found the 61-year old housewife and she won Rs. 2 crore! Sharda however had completely forgotten about the lotto ticket and it was only a month later when she read an article in the local newspaper that she realised she had won. Lucky for you – you have more than likely already registered right here at where not only will you receive an automated results mailer with any matches reflected, but you will also receive a telephone call in the event of a substantial lottery win. Making sure you always know about your win!

Go on, live a little!
