Aug. 24 (UPI) — A Missouri woman won a $7.5 million lottery jackpot after changing her mind and purchasing a ticket just moments prior to the drawing.
The girl told Missouri Lottery officials she initially didn’t anticipate investing in a ticket for the Aug. 10 Lotto drawing, but she finished up stopping at Stevenson’s Hi-Pointe Service & Wash in St. Louis just moments prior to the cutoff time and energy to buy tickets.
“I wasn’t likely to purchase a ticket, but I simply thought, ‘My God, it’s $7.5 million. I believe I will,'” the winner said.
The longtime Lotto player said she selected her very own “lucky” numbers, 1-12-17-23-31-36.
“That night, I’d heard that someone won, but I didn’t desire to check my tickets,” the ball player recalled. “When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it!”
The ticket was a $7.5 million jackpot winner.
“Our two daughters will undoubtedly be engaged and getting married,” the girl said of her plans your money can buy. “Thus that will be ideal for the weddings.”
