Woman Tells Husband He’s Wasting Money With Lotto Tickets, Then Buys One and Wins $1 Million
“Sometimes I get aggravated with him, so I tell him, ‘You’re just wasting your money,'” Blackwell told WLOS News 13.
Then she scratched the ticket.
Blackwell won a million dollars, but collected $415,503 after taxes, deciding on the lump sum rather than 20 yearly payments of $50,000.
“I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating,” she said, laughing.
She plans on paying off the family home and land, and using the rest to help put her daughter and two granddaughters through college.
As for future lottery chances, the couple has decided to halt their luck. One and done!
