I wouldn’t be able to trust some clerk with a possible winning ticket
A truck driver in Brooklyn is headed toward easy street after winning last month’s $298.3 million Powerball jackpot ― the second-largest in New York Lottery history.
David Johnson won the Dec. 26 jackpot with winning numbers 5-25-38-52-67 and Powerball 24. The 56-year-old Jamaican native didn’t even check to see if he had won until two days after the drawing.
“I got a call that the winning ticket was sold at the store where I buy my tickets,” Johnson told Powerball.com. “I went to the store and gave the ticket to the clerk to check. He scanned it and said, ‘Congratulations.’ I needed to see it for myself, so I scanned and saw it read BIG WINNER.”
That’s one trustworthy clerk. Let’s say the clerk does a quick exchange with your ticket and some losing ticket he has laying around. You’re screwed here. I’m happy for the truck driver that it all worked out, but damn that could’ve gone south fast. This is, after all, Brooklyn we’re talking about. This isn’t some little old lady running a Powerball register in the middle of Ohio.
Numbers from :
Novak Djokovic wins his 15th major title, breaking a tie with Pete Sampras for the 3rd most in men's tennis history.
It's also his 7th Australian Open title, which broke a tie with Roger Federer and Roy Emerson for the most by a man in tournament history. pic.twitter.com/jL4kD2rphw
