A Canadian man who gained a lottery jackpot of almost $75,000 mentioned the winning ticket sat forgotten for months in the pocket of a jacket he had loaned to a friend.
Jose Lima, 69, told Ontario Lottery officials he received his jacket again after loaning it out to a friend and found the pocket contained a forgotten ticket for the Sept. 28, 2019, Lotto 6/49 draw.
Lima took the ticket to a retailer to see if it was a winner and he initially thought he had scored a smaller prize till the validation slip revealed he had won $74,045.50.
“I really feel fantastic. It’s one thing that occurs as soon as in a lifetime if it ever occurs in any respect,” Lima mentioned.
