A Brooklyn man may have used up his share of luck for many years. James Geoghan, decided to buy another $20 ticket after his first time playing the Maximum Millions resulted in a $20 win. The second purchase proved considerably lucky, giving James a very substantial $5 million jackpot.
The win so shocked James that he went back to the store and showed it to the lady at the counter. The lady started screaming after she saw the ticket, confirming James’ incredible stroke of luck.
James opted to receive a single payment of $3,115,200, and is now considering buying a home.
James was only one of nine winners awarded prizes Thursday. The list of winners include a fifty something man (James), a student, and a retired carpenter.
