Nick's story starts when him and his boss stopped at a convenience store after a long day of work. The pair picked up some hotdogs, sodas and a few lottery tickets for a local draw happening later that night.
Slatten checked his tickets the next day and using an app to check the winning numbers, he saw that he had bagged the jackpot prize. “I pulled out my ticket and I noticed every single number was matching up as I was driving down the road," he said.
He shared the news with his wife, and the pair decided to keep the ticket safe and claim a lump sum prize. But before he could stash his winning ticket away, it was lost after he decided to show it to his brother.
Retracing his steps he searched frantically for the ticket. “I should have never had the ticket in my pocket,” he later told news reporters.
But what could he have done differently to keep his winning ticket safe?
