Retiree Finds $24 Million Winning Lottery Ticket In The Nick Of Time

Lotto players are constantly told to remember to check their tickets after the draw, but for one lucky jackpot winner this advice came in handy in the nick of time.

Lotto players are prone to let their tickets pile up without ever giving them a second thought, but you can be certain that this New Jersey retiree will never fail to check his tickets ever again. Jimmie Smith, a 68 year old retired security guard, went through a stack of old lottery tickets and discovered that one of them was a $24 million winning ticket; which was set to expire in two days! 

"I always told myself, 'I'll check them when I have the time,'" the New Jersey resident told himself. And he's lucky that he did, if he had waited only two days longer he would have missed out on the $24 million jackpot! He bought the ticket for the New York Lottery over a year ago, and only checked the ticket again nearly a year later to see that he was $24 million richer. He has chosen to be paid out over a 26 year period, making sure that his family will remain financially secure for a long time to come.
