He carried the winning ticket in his pocket: the man almost lost $ 26 million
The man accidentally found out that he hit the jackpot.
In Australia, a man bought a lottery ticket and did not know about his prize for several weeks. The winnings amounted to 26 million dollars.
Casino.org writes about it.
Two weeks later, he came back to the store and heard people talking about the new owner of the Powerball jackpot. After that, the man checked the numbers on his ticket and realized that he was the winner of the last draw. His winnings amounted to almost 26.5 million dollars.
The Australian admitted that he then simply forgot about him, the ticket was in his pocket all the time.
A man is not going to radically change his life because of a large amount of money: he plans to go on a trip.
Recall that a married couple from the Canadian city of Prince George, British Columbia, played the lottery and hit the jackpot , but were left without winning because of their slowness.
