Everyone wants to win the lotto big time, but some individuals are just as lucky as others. In the lottery, luck is everything. A Michigan guy just won $25,000 a year for life in the lotto. According to a UPI article, the man created the numbers on his winning ticket using a random number generator he obtained online.
The Warren resident, 50-year-old Aaron Essenmacher, claimed to have bought his Lucky for Life drawing ticket on September 15 at the Warren Happy Days Party Store.
Essenmacher told UPI, “I’ve been playing ‘Lucky For Life’ quite a bit lately, and I usually use the same numbers.
“When I bought my ticket, I played the sets of numbers I always play, and then I decided to add another set of numbers,” Mr. Essenmacher said. “I acquired this set of numbers by utilizing a random number generator I discovered online.”
According to the source, the five white balls in the artwork were the digits 02-18-27-41-45.
“The day following the drawing, I looked up the winning numbers online, and I couldn’t believe it when I discovered that I had matched five! The fact that the numbers I won came from the random number generator astonished me even more. I repeatedly scanned my ticket on the app because I couldn’t believe I had won, “Mr. Essenmacher said.
According to a lottery press release, Mr. Essenmacher recently visited the lottery’s offices to claim his prize. Instead of getting a $25,000 (20 lakh rupee) annuity payment each year for 20 years, or until he died, whichever came first. To pay off his obligations and take a vacation, he has chosen to receive his winnings as a one-time lump sum payoff of $390,000 (3.2 Crore).
With Lucky For Life, lottery players may enter to win prizes worth up to a lifetime’s worth of money for just $2 for each play. The biggest prize in the game, $1,000 each day for life, is won by matching all five winning numbers, which range from 1 to 48, plus one Lucky Ball, which can go from 1 to 18. The release further said that players who match all five winning numbers but not the Lucky Ball would get a lifetime payment of $25,000 per year.
