When Troy man Matthew Beidl won $5 from an instant ticket, he decided to use the winnings to buy a Cash King instant ticket. Now he’s a millionaire.
After Beidl discovered the million dollar win, he was unable to report for work – he went to his mother’s instead to have someone check to see if his win is valid. He has since made his claim and decided he wants to be paid $52,000 a year for the next twenty years. That will net him about $34,414 after taxes.
