Roberto Tripodi and his family have been looking for a new home for a while, but the majority of the houses they liked have been out of their price range. Things changed for the better when Tripodi scooped a $1.000.000 Mega Millions prize after his daughter suggested that he should buy a ticket.

The lucky man from Valhalla, New York matched the five main winning numbers 18, 26, 30, 44 and 68 on March 15th, but he came forward to collect the amazing $1.000.000 prize over a month later. He wasn’t even planning to buy a winning ticket, since the jackpot was at $20.000.000 back then, but his 12-year-old daughter convinced him to try his luck anyway.
“I really only play when the jackpots get high. But, that morning my daughter told me I should play the lottery. She was sure I would win. I think that’s why she told me to play,” said the fortunate father of two.
Since he had $5 to spare, Tripodi decided to follow her advice, and purchased few Mega Millions tickets. He went to check them two days after the drawing took place and found out his daughter’s hunch was right.
“The scanner wasn’t working so I gave it to the clerk. He scanned it and said it was winner, but it didn’t say how much. Then he printed the claim ticket and told me I won $1.000.000. I thought it was a dream,” recalled Tripodi, who plans to buy a new house, set up college funds for his daughters and take them to Disney World.
