Devoted lottery player
They celebrated the jackpot on the day their son was born. Lu noted that he is a devoted lottery
player. His usual six numbers have now brought him the $7.2 million jackpot. However, Lu revealed that
he had chosen the numbers randomly.
Danced like fools
The winner commented that it seemed like a dream when he checked the numbers. He bought the ticket at a gas station on the same day. They informed their children about the jackpot win, after they danced around like fools.
Their 28-year-old daughter declared that she thought it was a joke
. “I asked my mother: Is this one of your practical jokes? I just couldn’t believe it.” She needed to check the numbers herself to be sure that it wasn’t a joke.
