Bus driver claims a $1.000.000 Powerball prize after a month-long delay

Some of the most forgetful people in the world can be found amongst the ranks of lottery winners – many of them spend weeks and even months walking around with a fortune in their pockets, without even knowing it. One of these people is Roberto Portillo who claimed an amazing $1.000.000 Powerball prize this Thursday, over a month after actually winning it. You can avoid complications and claim your prize without any delays by playing online – Powerball is offering $184.000.000 on Wednesday!

Mr. Portillo matched the five main winning numbers 5, 25, 26, 44 and 66, but missed the Power Ball 9 back on May 7th. He bought the lucky ticket at the 7-Eleven at 6720 Old Dominion Drive in McLean, and walked around with it in his wallet for a month. When he finally decided to ask a store clerk to check the numbers for him, the fortunate man was in for a treat – not only did he won, but he became $1.000.000 richer in a blink of an eye.

 “That’s incredible! I still cannot believe it!” said the lucky bus driver after collecting the prize at the Virginia Lottery headquarters, and added he has no immediate plans with the money.

He isn’t the only winner in the recent memory who spent a whole month waiting to claim his prize – members of the bakery syndicate from Chester also spent a few weeks before realizing they’ve scooped £1.000.000. Things eventually turned out fine in their case, but sometimes they don’t and life-changing windfalls end up unclaimed because of it.
