Postal Payoff

Postal workers generally go unappreciated for all of the hard work they do – fending off an angry dog, trudging through a winter storm, or sweating through a muggy July day to make sure our packages arrive on time.  Michael Stetar is one lucky postman who got the thanks he deserved when he purchased a winning scratch off ticket worth $4 million! Michael has been a postman in Elgin, Illinois for 17 years, and a loyal scratch off player for about as long. By his own account, Michael purchases one scratch off a week hoping to hit it big, and that’s just what he did with a $20 Golden Casino ticket. Michael explained his life changing decision, “I feel luckier when I play a new game, so when I saw the Golden Casino ticket, I bought it, and I won! I scratched my ticket outside and then ran back into the store and had the clerk confirm that I really did win!” Michael elected to take the one-time payment, and he will receive $2.4 million after taxes. He plans to invest some of his winnings for retirement, but only after he splurges on a brand new truck.

One Happy Accident

Most accidents end up costing money, but for one lucky Connecticut man the reverse was true! Earlier in June, Bob Sabo arrived at a Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield with the intention of purchasing two $20 lottery tickets. Unwilling to wait in the long line, Bob decided to try his luck with the lottery vending machine. The automated machines are meant for speed and ease – press a few buttons, and no need to talk to anyone. Unfortunately, Bob forgot his glasses and accidentally purchased one $30 ticket instead of the two $20s he wanted. Frustration quickly turned into excitement when Bob arrived home and scratched the ticket to find out he won $30,000. He recalls the unlikely moment, “…I couldn’t believe it- we won $30,000. Winning the way we did was a very freaky thing!” Bob hasn’t revealed what he plans to do with the money, but we bet he’ll be back at the vending machine sometime soon!

MA Lottery has first $15M winner in Supreme Millions Instant Game

Newlyweds from Cape Cod are the first $15 million winner of Massachusetts State Lottery’s Supreme Millions Instant Game, which was introduced on April 28, 2015.

How’d they win:

On Saturday, Stacy Foster and her husband walked into a convenience store on Route 6 in Eastham, MA, and requested a $30 ticket. But the store clerk told Stacy the dispenser wasn’t operating and that she would need to purchase a ticket from a different dispenser.

The broken dispenser was worth $15 million, or $9,750,000 less taxes since the couple took the one-time cash payment.

The newlyweds plan to purchase a house, pay off student loans and buy a truck with their winnings.

According to MA lottery officials, three $15M prizes and 61 $1M prizes remain to be won.

If you want to win millions but don’t want to spend $30 for a ticket, play FreeLotto.

FreeLotto winner tells his story of winning $2 million

José Reis, FreeLotto’s latest multi-million dollar winner, talks about what it’s like to become instantly rich.

“When I first received the email from FreeLotto telling me I had won this big prize, I was very surprised because I was not expecting anything.

“When I opened it, I first that it was a scam. I was very suspicious. I made my own inquiries. I found some telephone numbers, especially the ones for FreeLotto directors.

“I called them and sent emails, and they answered me. Then everything started to become clear. And I began to take the matter more seriously. I became very happy.

“I first registered at FreeLotto in 2008. And I’ve been playing for 7 years. At first, I checked the results every day. Then, of course, over time, I let it slide, which is why it took some time to realize I had won.

“I have a lot of projects in mind with the $2 million. Although I haven’t decided yet, I think I’ll probably travel, pay for my children’s studies, and finish some projects around the house, and a lot of other things, like charity, especially a program FreeLotto has launched to which I believe I’ll contribute to Amnesty International.

The only advice I can give to other players of FreeLotto, based on my experience, is to be relentless and never lose hope.”

Sounds like good advice for life.

Lottery Scammers on the Loose

Two Florida men are currently on the loose after scamming an elderly woman into purchasing a fake lottery ticket. According to reports, the victim, a 70 year-old-woman from Miami-Dade County, was waiting at a bus stop when two men approached and offered to sell her a winning lottery ticket. The man told her he was not a legal resident and therefore, unable to claim the prize himself, but would give it to her for $10,000 in cash. The elderly woman agreed and allowed the two men to drive her to the bank, where she took out the requested sum. Afterwards, she was driven to an apartment complex, where the men allegedly tried to snatch her purse. A struggle ensued, and the woman was eventually thrown from the car. The woman was shaken up, but largely uninjured, while police are still searching for the two men involved.

The Thief Who Missed $1 Million

It’s not very likely you’re relieved when your car is broken into, but that’s exactly how one Seattle couple felt last week. Their car window was smashed, and the thief stole a pair of sunglasses, leaving behind a seemingly worthless lottery ticket. The couple purchased the ticket in February for a $350 million jackpot drawing, but never bothered to check the numbers until mid-May. They soon discovered that their forgotten ticket was worth $1 million as part of a second chance prize. The couple declined to be identified publicly, but told lottery officials they plan to use their winnings to travel to Paris and Iceland – and to buy new sunglasses!

Lucky Californian Man Wins $2.7 Million

On May 26th a small market in Salinas, CA made a very big sale. Charles Messenger, a computer administration employee, purchased twenty $1 Quick Pick tickets while doing his usual grocery shopping. As luck would have it one of those tickets correctly matched five of the six numbers selected in that night’s Mega Millions drawing. Just like that, Charles won a cool $2.7 million dollars! He recalls that the shock of winning set in almost immediately, “Last night was surreal when I checked the ticket. It’s like a whole new reality.” He continued, “My son said he refused to believe me when I told him. He kept saying I was messing with him”. Charles confirmed his winning lottery ticket with the East Bay district office on his way to Las Vegas. While the family trip was planned prior to his big win, Charles did joke, “Now I can play at the $25 blackjack tables.”

Michigan Lottery Legislation Aims to Leave Lotto Winners Alone

Earlier this month a Michigan House Regulatory Reform committee approved a measure to allow state and national lottery winners to remain anonymous. The state already allows anonymity for winners collecting prizes under $10,000, but this new bill would allow the same for Mega Millions and Powerball winners. Rep. Ray Franz, a supporter of the legislation, says, “Lottery winnings, while for many is a major plus in their lives, it can be a major negative at times. It costs friendships. It costs family relationships. It costs jobs. I thought it should be an option that’s available.” Michigan would add itself to list of six other states that already allow their lottery winners to remain anonymous – Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio, and South Carolina. While many are in favor of the bill, the Lottery Commission opposes it on the grounds that it will detract from their ability to promote new winners and further encourage ticket sales. The bill will move to the full House for a vote later this summer.

Latest Virginia Lottery scratch-off winner nets $4 million

“I couldn’t breathe. It feels so surreal. It’s so unbelievable!”

Those are the comments from recent Virginia Lottery winner Jacqueline Duvall who scratched her Money Money Money ticket to reveal she is Virginia’s newest multi-millionaire.

Ms. Duvall, no relation to famous actor Robert Duvall, purchased the ticket at a Quik-E Foods in Forest, Virginia, last week, then went back to the store on Friday to pick up her $4 million from the Virginia Lottery. She could have taken the full $4 million over 30 years, but instead opted for a one-time cash payout of $2,149,572 before taxes.

Ms. Duvall purchased her ticket before a lunch break and scratched off a bit to see if she had won. When she saw the money bag icon, she knew she had won something, perhaps her money back, she initially thought. Incredibly, she put the ticket down and finished her lunch before seeing what she had won.

If you’re playing the Virginia Lottery, you should now be aware that this is the first top prize won, so there are 2 $4 million winning tickets available. The previous odds of winning the top prize were 1 in 1,305,600. Click here to view the new odds.

If you enjoy scratch-off games and playing state lotteries, you’ll love FreeLotto. The odds are similar to state-run lotteries, except you can play for free.

FreeLotto’s $2 million jackpot winner tells his story

FreeLotto’s recent $2 million jackpot winner, José Reis who lives in France, offers the following advice to all lottery players:

“Be relentless and never lose hope.”

Mr. Reis began playing FreeLotto in 2008 and would check his emails every day.

Over time, he stopped reading his FreeLotto emails every day and would only check every now and then. But he kept playing.

Then came the big day when his numbers matched the jackpot. And his official email from FreeLotto congratulating him on his win sat in his inbox, unopened.

The email sat for a few days until the subject caught his attention. He won?

He opened his email and his first reaction was that it was a scam. Two million dollars!

He read it carefully over and over. The language was pretty clear. He was a winner.

The email did not say he was eligible to win. The email didn’t ask him to purchase anything first. The email did not require him to provide a credit card or pay a fee upfront. None of that. The email just said he won.

So he emailed the FreeLotto office in New York City, not exactly sure what to expect back.

“We were wondering why he hadn’t contacted us sooner,” said a FreeLotto prize official.

A phone call was set up and the details were confirmed. Arrangements were made for a FreeLotto representative to go to his house and set up a photo shoot.

The realization that he was $2 million richer was now sinking in.

Mr. Reis needed to sign documents and understand and take care of his tax obligations.

Then came the publicity photo shoot, followed by a video interview.

Indeed, his dreams were coming true.

Mr. Reis said he plans to use the money for his children’s education, finish up some remodeling projects around his home, and to travel.

He also will be donating a portion of his winnings to National Amnesty, one of the FreeLotto supported charity programs.

His final advice to other FreeLotto players: “Check your emails!”

You may not be an immediate winner, but you have to play to have a chance of winning $11 million. If you enjoy scratch-off games and playing state lotteries, you’ll love FreeLotto. The odds are similar to state-run lotteries, except you can play for free.
