$1,000,000 is Perfect Timing
It took a while for Matthew Housman to get his check on August 7, 2012, but get it he did. The $50 Million Money Mania Scratchers was accidently torn in half by the clerk. Since there happened to be two Lottery representatives in the store at the time, they assured him that the ticket would be validated; it would just take a little longer.
Matthew originally started to play the $50 Million Money Mania because the different colors of the ticket caught his eye. He’s been playing them since they came out, and this time he bought two from the Lottery Express machine. He scratched them in his car in the parking lot, and the first words out of his mouth were, “Thank you, God!” Then, after the ticket was taped back together, he went to tell his wife. Her first words were, “Are you serious?”
The $50 Million Money Mania Scratchers gives the $1,000,000 winner the choice of either an annuity or a lump sum. Since Matthew chose the lump sum, his win was $625,000 before taxes. The timing of this win is perfect. First, he and his wife plan to make a tithe to their church. Then they’re going to pay off all of their bills, buy a house without a mortgage, and save the rest. The winning ticket was purchased from Fry’s Marketplace, 1935 N. Stapley Dr., Mesa.
