John Stresing has been playing the Cash4Life game for sometime. So when he bought a ticket using the same number combination containing family members’ birthdays and the number 4, it was not unusual. It was the result which was unusually lucky for him.
John Stresing hit the big one – the top prize in the game which paid $1000 a day for life. He immediately asked his son John Jr. to call, and then decided to split the winnings with him. Now father and son will each receive $182,500 before taxes every year for he rest of their lives.
John Sr. will prioritize paying bills and taking his wife on a honeymoon they never had. And John Jr. wants to travel and maybe even retire.
