Everyone has their own special theory as to how to win millions on lottery draw games and scratchers, from choosing numbers based around family birthday, to trusting in a lucky item of clothing when buying their tickets. However, could the answer simply be to get married? This week has witnessed one set of newlyweds and a couple due to tie the knot this fall both win big by playing instant win games.
David and Stacy Foster of Orleans, Massachusetts were married May 1 and received a late wedding gift beyond their wildest dreams when their $30 Supreme Millions ticket scored them a $15 million windfall. In an amazing stroke of luck, Stacy had indicated the ticket she wanted to buy to the clerk at the store on Route 6 in Eastham, but was told that she had to have one from the open register. That proved to be a winner, boosting the Fostersâ€™ joint account by $9.75 million after tax withholdings.
The couple say that they will pay off their student loans, invest in a house and buy a truck with the lottery win.
In Illinois, Chase Knapp of Downers Grove, west of Chicago, will not have to worry about how to pay for wedding favors and champagne for his upcoming nuptials after claiming $2 million on a 50x The Cash instant game while running errands for his fiancee. Chase visited three stores, buying instant games in each and eventually picking the $10 winning ticket up from the Villa Park Mobil. He says that he will invest the prize, although some will go towards paying for the big day in October.
As well as offering scratch-offs, the Illinois and Massachusetts lotteries both offer a range of fun draw games that you can play whether youâ€™re married or not, and you can find the latest winning numbers at Lottery.net!
