New York Man Wins $5 Million on his Birthday

A New York man got the best birthday present ever!  Patrick Clarke, a 28-year-old New York native, won $5 million on his birthday!

Clarke purchased a $10 “Set for Life” instant ticket on December 20th—his birthday.  He says his mom gave him some money as a gift, and Clarke knew immediately that he would play his mother’s favorite lottery game, “Set for Life”.

Clarke waited to play until he arrived at his girlfriend’s house.

“I scratched the ticket and saw a match on number 16 with the word ‘Life’ under it,” Clarke said.  “I started laughing and dancing all around the house!”

Clarke chose the option of taking a lump sum payment totaling $2,453,693 after taxes.

He says he feels blessed to have won the lottery and knows he won’t have to worry about money as much.  “There will always be something to worry about,” says Clarke, “but for once it won’t be about money.”

We’re so glad that Clarke received the best birthday present ever! Congratulations!

Illinois Scratch-Off Games Discontinued

The Northstar Lottery Group, which provided scratch-offs for the Illinois lottery, has stopped running scratch-off games and started pulling them from shelves before selling all the tickets or awarding prizes.

The former Illinois lottery director, Michael Jones, says that the contract details leave Illinois lottery officials with their hands tied.  The Northstar Lottery Group oversaw management of the lottery, and now lottery officials must sit by idly as the games are discontinued.

Northstar counters that Illinois approved of the way games were run and that all games were run fairly.

Independent reports show that the state collected hundreds of millions of dollars in ticket sales, but failed to pay grand prizes.

We hope the state of Illinois sorts through their lottery issues and compensates their winners very soon.  Check back on FreeLotto blogs for more updates on this Illinois lottery story.
