Lottery Ticket In Cookie Jar

Lottery Ticket In Cookie Jar, An American man who was facing a mountain of bills and eviction from his house has become a multi-millionaire after discovering a lottery-winning ticket in his cookie jar.

Ricardo Cerezo of Geneva, Illinois, said his wife was cleaning out the kitchen and mentioned the lottery tickets that had accumulated over the past month in a glass cookie jar.

“It was either take them, get them checked, or she was going to trash them that night,” Cerezo was quoted by Chicago Tribune as saying.

Cerezo, a management consultant, said he took the tickets to a 7-Eleven in Aurora and scanned them. The first eight or nine tickets were not winners.

“The following one was USD 3, so I was excited. I get to pay for my Pepsi. And then the last one said file a claim,” he said, which meant it was worth at least USD 600.

Cerezo went online and found that the numbers matched the February 2 Lotto drawing.
