Sometimes you have to change tack to get different results. When Clifford Owle Jr. of Murphy has not found much luck matching lottery numbers, he bought a 10th Anniversary Millions scratch-off ticket instead. Now he is a million dollars richer for it.
His $10 investment in an instant ticket gave him a million dollars which he chose to receive as a one-time payment of $415,503.00 net of taxes. He says he intends to invest his winnings.
