Lottery operators care constantly telling us to keep our tickets safe, and two lucky lotto players chose a very unique hiding spot for their winning ticket.
When two friends stashed their lottery ticket in the cup holder of a car they never dreamed that the ticket would win the pair a $1 million jackpot. The ticket had been languishing in the cup holder for almost three weeks after the draw before one of the pair found the ticket and checked the numbers.
The ticket was sold on the 6th of January, and matched five of the main numbers drawn to win the million dollar jackpot, and the shop that sold their winning ticket will also receive a $10,000 commission prize. If the two had paid only one more dollar and played the red Powerball number their payday would have been in the hundred-million dollar range!
The US Powerball jackpot is currently over $100 million! Get your tickets now and stand a chance at winning one of the year's biggest jackpots!
