The head chef at the Colonnade Diner has just won a $7 million jackpot off the Golden Ticket, a game he frequently plays. He says he has won smaller amounts in the past which made him keep playing the $25 per ticket game. But when he discovered the win, he had a hard time believing it was for real.
With an oversized check for the full $7 million, there is no denying that Eduardo Reyes is now a millionaire many times over. He got to take home $4,362,280 after taxes were deducted. Now he plans to use the money to buy a new home for his family.
