A Louisiana Couple in the South of the United States cleared his house to meet the family on Thanksgiving and found an old lottery ticket that would soon expire. When checking the numbers, they could not believe: with all the successful ones, they won a $ 1.8 million prize.
The lucky ticket for the state lottery was bought by Harold and Tina Erenberg on June 6th. They managed to collect their prize when they were only two weeks away from the 180 days limit to do so.
They looked at the lottery's website and found that one of their tickets corresponded to all the numbers listed in one of the drawings. After tax cuts, Ehrenbergs take away $ 1.27 million, which they plan to save for retirement.
"We keep checking the numbers over and over again," says Harold Erenberg.
After realizing that they had won the prize, fear began to invade Mr. Harenberg to suspect that they had missed the deadline for receiving the prize. "I kept waiting for something to go wrong," he said.
The winning draw numbers on June 6 were 03-07-30-31-35-38. The shop they acquired was given a unique sale bonus of $ 17,948.07, which is 1% of the prize.
"We do not intend to buy anything crazy or make some great travel," said Tina Erenberg.
The only winner in South Carolina won a record $ 1.537 million in a US Mega Millions lottery in October, leaving behind the $ 656 million record, set up in March 2012.
