Just like you, a guy in Illinois named Giuseppe Anelli did NOT win the Powerball jackpot on Wednesday night. But get ready to hate him anyway.
Two-and-a-half months ago, Giuseppe bought a lottery ticket for a July 4th drawing, then forgot about it until last month, when he saw it while he was digging through his glove box.
Apparently he stashes lottery tickets there all the time, and sometimes forgets to check the numbers. But in this case, he took the ticket into a gas station, scanned it on the lottery machine, and a message popped up that said, "File a Claim."
So he went home, checked the numbers for July 4th . . . and realized he'd won a MILLION BUCKS.
Giuseppe says he and his wife plan to use the winnings to pay off their house and set up a college fund for their three kids. (Yahoo)
