An 86 year old man from San Jose may have stumbled on a good lottery playing routine. The man has been watering the flowers at Our Lady of Refuge Catholic Church, praying for a bit and then buying lottery tickets for the past year. Though his prayers have been for help taking care of grandchildren, he has just been blessed with a lotto win.
After paying for $4 for a Set For Life instant ticket, the man discovered he had won $4,000 a month for life. The man, who requested anonymity, later chose a single payment option of about $696,000. He says first priority is a new roof on his house.
