Steve Anthony’s life has not been very easy, that is why he buys a few instant tickets now and then hoping for a significant win. And New Year’s eve was a good time to win, so he bought a $250,000,000 Cash Spectacular instant game for $10. That turned out to be a very good decision.
The ticket came out a big winner – $1 million to be exact. He thinks it is a great start of the year and plans to spend most of the $600,000 less required withholding he received to care for his parents and to do some traveling.
Christopher D’s, the store which sold the winning ticket, earned a $10,000 seller’s bonus.
