Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it apparently has made one NY city cop rich!
Lukasz Solis who lives in Suffolk County likes to play the lottery. When he spotted a $10 Wonka Golden Ticket on a lotto ticket run at the Sweet Tree Food Store in Far Rockaway, he bought one. Asked why he chose to add the ticket to his purchases, he said it was a new game. Seems like he wants to try everything new and mix up his entries.
When he got home, he scratched the ticket and to his surprise, saw that his curiosity has paid off, big time! His ticket won the game’s top prize of $3,000,000! Now that’s something for a cop who earned less than $120,000 last year!
He has since gone to the lottery offices to claim his prize. He has chosen to receive the full amount in twenty yearly installments of $150,000 ($99,270 after taxes). The winner says he wants to spend on home improvements and to help his wife go back to school.
