Alabama man wins $1.000.000, spends whole summer without realizing it

The past few months would probably look a lot differently for Robert Pitchford if he knew then what he knows now. This 65-year-old Alabama resident woke up and went to work every weekday this summer not realizing he was a millionaire – he scooped a $1.000.000 Powerball prize back on June 24th, but only collected it this week.

There was no jackpot winners in Powerball drawing on June 24th, but Mr. Pitchford was lucky enough to match the numbers 3-5-10-22-32, only missing Power Ball 7. He won $1.000.000, but haven’t realized it until two months later after he checked the results from a Powerball ticket that was tucked in his wallet.

„I purchased a ticket for multiple draws. I always come to the state line to check my ticket,“ said the winner. He realized he won $261 from his other tickets, but only stumbled upon a gold mine after checking the one from June 24th drawing.

„I said ’Oh really! What?!’ I didn't even know that I’d hit,“ explained Pitchford, while collecting the prize at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.

If he knew about the prize earlier, some of it would probably be spent on a summer holiday by now. The two-month-long delay provided Pitchford with an opportunity to come up with  different plans – he will buy a new convertible, take a cruise and retire from his job as a tool and dye maker.

You still have few weeks to make this summer the best one of your life and Mega Millions could help you to achieve that goal. Play now to become $85.000.000 richer!
