Maryland: Sometimes, luck plays a big role in making you rich. It’s true! Things worked out in a dramatic way for this American woman who was merely out to buy groceries.
A woman from Maryland, USA, is now in cloud nine as she has won a two hundred and twenty-five thousand dollar lottery prize – all thanks to a trip to the grocery store.
Vanessa Ward told Virginia Lottery that her father asked her to pick up a head of cabbage, so she stopped by the Giant Food Store in Groveton. While she was there, she decided to buy a Win a Spin scratch-off ticket. Rest is history.
She then scratched the ticket and discovered that she had won the game’s top prize: a live spin on the Big Wheel and the chance to win anywhere between $100,000 and $500,000.
Vanessa’s lucky spin earned her a massive $2,25,000 prize – that’s approximately Rs 1.5 crore!
Vanessa, who lives in Temple Hills, says that she now plans to put the money towards her retirement – and perhaps take a trip to Disney World.
