The lottery has just given a newlywed couple a huge wedding gift. David and Stacy Foster may not even mind that the lottery’s ‘gift’ is a couple months late.
The couple wanted to buy instant tickets off a machine which happened to be closed. They had to settle for three instant tickets from a dispensing machine which was open. That was all it took to give them a $15 million payout. The happy pair later chose to receive their prize in a single payment of about $6.8 million net of taxes.
Now that their life together is off to a great start, the winners are looking to buy a house, a car, and to pay off student loans.
