Father and Daughter Win Lottery After Trying Something New
60-year-old Irene Harper and her 80-year-old father Thomas Foden of Wolverhampton, England have played the lottery every week since it started in November, 1994.
Not only that, but Thomas and Irene bought their ticket from the same store every week for the last 18 years. The most they’ve ever won is $15. So last Friday, Irene decided to change things up to see if it improved their luck.
A grocery store had just installed a new lottery machine, so Irene bought her ticket there, instead of at the newsstand they normally went to. Surprisingly it worked. Thomas and Irene matched all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing, and won the jackpot. The jackpot was a little more than $6.3 million.
If they are having any trouble spending that money feel free to throw some my way.
