A retired employee of the city of Chicago won a million dollars from the Illinois Lottery’s St. Patrick’s Day Millionaire Raffle.
It was actually Edward Casper’s son who called his father to tell him they had won. He initially thought it may be for $500 or even $5000. He was delighted to learn it was really for a full million dollars. Then he did another thing right – he sought help from a financial adviser before claiming his prize.
Now he wants to clear off debts, buy cars for his son and daughter, and invest the rest.
