Joseph Timmons was at home when his long-time partner, Heidi, left to run errands. Joseph asked Heidi if she’d buy him Fast Play tickets while she was out. After purchasing the tickets, Heidi realized that she had a winning ticket. She asked the cashier for the jackpot amount and was told the current Extreme Green Fast Play jackpot was $30,003, which was true, because Joseph and Heidi had just unknowingly won the $512,881 jackpot with their ticket purchase and the jackpot had reset. Heidi excitedly called Joseph to tell him he’d just won $30,003.
Heidi continued her errands for the day until her niece called and shared that someone had won a $500,000+ jackpot nearby. Heidi rushed back to the store and overheard other players discussing the recent jackpot win from earlier in the day. She looked at Joseph’s ticket more closely and realized the amount he had won was printed at the top of the ticket: $512,881!
The couple was elated to find out they had won much more than they originally thought! Heidi called her mother who cried in happiness after learning the news. Heidi also called their son, who repeatedly ignored her calls while on the other line. Finally, when he answered, he sarcastically said, “What, did Pops win the lottery or something?”
The couple plans to pay bills and make repairs and improvements to their home.
