Do you know how it feels to win a $5 million prize from the lottery? Watch this video to hear from a strangely calm scratch off ticket winner.
A Queens man turned a $50 birthday gift from his mother into a $5 million lottery jackpot. 28-year old Patrick Clark tells us in the video that he was not really expecting to win but win he did. He also describes how it felt when he first found out he had won big.
He had bought the winning $10 Set for Life scratch-off from the Friendly Deli & Grocery in Brooklyn last Dec. 20. He then proceeded to this girlfriend’s house and scratched off both tickets, where one was revealed to have won the top prize of not less than $5 million. After taxes Clark gets to take home $2,453,693.
He says he knows that there will always be something to worry about, but this time it will not be money. He plans to continue working as a ramp agent for Delta Air and still plays the lottery. He says he wants to ensure the financial futures of his 2 children.
