The winning combination that proved to be life-changing for this lucky Matteson resident consisted of the numbers 1, 6, 12, 14 and 25. They were all drawn in the Lucky Day Lotto game on June 7th and had made Mr. Gambles $1.050.000 richer in a blink of an eye – and it’s not even the first time that these numbers brought him an incredible fortune.
“Nine years ago, I won $50.000 playing the numbers from the jerseys of my high school basketball team. I’ve been playing the same numbers ever since. I can’t believe they paid off again,” said the retired school administrator after collecting his incredible windfall at the Illinois Lottery headquarters.
The 65-year-old winner isn’t the only one profiting after his amazing lotto victory – Harvey’s Corner store in Country Club Hills will receive an impressive $10.500 bonus for selling the ticket. Gambles said his family and friends will also get a fair share of his jackpot. When asked to give advice to all the lottery players out there hoping to follow in his footsteps, Gambles said it’s essential to have patience.
“Pick your favourite numbers and stick with them. It worked for me,” explained the lucky man.
