Big Winnings For A Big Family

Bill Hansen, of Long Island, New York, was loading his groceries into the trunk of his car when he realized that he had a $20 bill in his pocket and decided to go back into the supermarket and buy a scratch off ticket. That decision would ultimately change his life. He walked back into the store and selected a $500,000,000 Extravaganza instant ticket. He scratched it off right there in the store and at first glance thought he had won $5,000. Hansen asked the customer service desk employee to check the ticket. It didn’t sink in that he had won $5 million until they announced it on the loud speaker.
The retired crane worker and his wife Mary, have been married for over 50 years, claimed the winnings together. They were joined by their family. The Hansens will receive 20 annual payments of $125,000 each before taxes. They plan to use the money to take care of their extended family which includes six children, eleven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
