A Louisiana couple, in the southern United States, cleared his house to welcome the family this Thanks and found an old lottery ticket to finish off. When they check the numbers, they could not believe it: with all the successes, they won a prize of 1.8 million dollars.
The lucky ticket for the state lottery was purchased by Harold and Tina Ehrenberg on June 6. They could collect their prize when only two weeks left the 180-day limit to do so.
The couple reviewed the lottery website and found that one of their tickets coupled all the numbers in one of the drawings. After losing taxes, the Ehrenbergs take 1,27 million dollars, which they plan to save for their retirement.
"We have kept the numbers fixed," said Harold Ehrenberg.
After realizing that they won the prize, fear began invading Mr. Herenberg to suspect that they had lost the term to claim the prize. "I waited something to go wrong," he said.
The winning numbers for June 6 were 03-07-30-31-35-38. The store, where they got it, received a unique sale of $ 17,948.07, which is 1% of the prize.
"We're not planning to buy something crazy or make a great trip," explained Tina Ehrenberg.
A single South Carolina winner has won a $ 1,537 million pound in the United States Mega Millions lottery in October, leaving the previous record of $ 656 million established in March 2012.
