When Gaurav Sharma’s eight-year old son prompted him to gas-up at the nearest station, he was a little peeved he had to get his receipt from the station’s convenience store instead of at the gas pump. But that led him to spot a ticket at the store and use the last two dollars on his pocket to purchase it on a whim.
He decided to immediately scratch the ticket which more than made up for the bit of inconvenience when it won the top $1,000 a week for life prize. Sharma is set to receive $1, 000 a week for the next 25 years, or a total of $1.3 million, as he chose the annuity option. Not too bad for a $2 bet.
The gas stop filled more than his car’s gas tank. Now his wallet will be full for the next 25 years!
