Michael Pozzi liked the numbers from one of his old quick pick tickets so much that he hasn’t stopped using them even after they failed to bring him luck in the first place. It turns out it was a right decision after all, since these numbers helped him to win an astonishing $1.000.000 Powerball prize few months later. The jackpot is still up for grabs – play now and you could scoop $141.000.000 tonight!
The fortunate Central Islip resident matched the winning numbers 3, 12, 16, 32 and 34, but missed the Power Ball 14 back on April 30th, and was presented with an oversized cheque worth $1.000.000 few days ago. When asked how he feels about this amazing lotto victory, Pozzi compared it to winning the Monopoly.
He owns his fortune to Play it Again option, which allows players from the state of New York to purchase an exact duplicate of a ticket they purchased within the last 30 days. Pozzi decided to use this option because he liked the set of numbers on a quick pick ticket he previously bought.
“I’ve been using these numbers for a couple of months. I’ve used play it again for a couple of games. If the numbers seem like an odd set or I think they could win I’ll play them again,” explained the man, and added he plans to use the prize to pay off some bills and make safe investments for the future.
