Last year, $30 million of the Lottery revenue was directed to local police and firefighters' pensions.
Noah A. was on a break from work when he went over to Kroger and decided to buy a Scratch-off. He picked a $20 Ultimate Triple 777 Scratch-off because he’d won on it before. He quickly realized this win was much bigger.
Noah won a top prize of $1.7 million on the ticket. He said he immediately shared the news with his girlfriend via Facebook Messenger, but she didn’t believe him until he sent a photo of the Scratch-off.
With the prize money, Noah plans to go to college and eventually buy a car and house. He plans to save the rest for later down the road.
Noah claimed the prize as an annuity, which will be paid out annually over 20 years.
