Terry Barnett had always believed his number combination would hit the jackpot someday. To that end he has been betting on his 07-10-14-22-32-41 combination for the last ten years, even though his wife never shared his faith in the numbers. And then finally his number combination was drawn on July 5.
Only problem was, even Terry did not know that at first, leaving lottery officials to wonder why nobody has turned up to claim a $6.2 million prize. It was weeks later when he decided to check the tickets in his wallet while filling up at a gas station. The first ticket won $3, but the other prompted a message that said ‘File claim’. It was the cashier who guessed that he was the missing $6.2 million winner.
They are now happy to be able to pay off their mortgage, buy a new car, and are considering going on a vacation. One thing that is not about to change is the regular lottery ticket purchases. Interestingly, Terry plans to keep playing the same numbers.
