Ray Hazell loved playing the lottery so much that he set aside $10 to $15 from every paycheck so he can continue playing after retirement. The 69-year old retiree was finally rewarded when a “$4,000,000 Gold Bullion” scratch ticket gave him a million dollar payout.
Hazell contained his excitement enough to keep the win a secret so he could surprise his wife with it. He claimed the money, and then bought roses, wine and some appetizers and set the check in the middle of the table. Now they couple can enjoy their retirement without having to worry about financial matters.
