$9.4 million jackpot winner shows good work ethic
Most multimillion jackpot winners can’t wait to collect their fortune, while others prefer to finish their job duties first. Eric Tackett definitely belongs to the latter group as the truck driver dropped off his load before claiming his $9.4 million bonanza
. That’s what they call ‘a good work ethic’.

came up in the lottery draw that took place on 31 August. He has decided to take the cash value of the annuity prize and will receive a one-time payment of nearly $3 million
