“Graduating at 82!”
A South Carolina man said his need to pick up milk led to his winning a $2 million lottery jackpot.
The man told lottery officials he went to the Food Lion grocery store because he ran out of milk and he needed it for his morning coffee.
While at the store, the man stopped at the customer service counter and purchased a Powerball ticket for the May 14 draw.
The player discovered the next day that he had matched the first five numbers drawn, 6-40-41-45-52.
“I freaked out,” the winner recalled.
The man had paid an extra $1 which doubled his $1 million jackpot to $2 million.
“It’s a large amount,” he said. “I’m excited.”
