Tony Nozar of Suffolk, Virginia believes in luck.
He recently threw a penny in a fountain and wished to win the Virginia Lottery.
Just a moment later, he bought a pair of Virginia’s $5 Million Club tickets. One of those tickets won the game’s $5 million top prize.
I ran back in the store and hugged the clerk, Nozar said.
He said, “Did you win?’ I said yes!
It happened in Chesapeake, Va.
He had a choice between taking the full $5 million over 25 years or an immediate cash option of $3,210,000. He chose the annuity, which comes out to $200,000 per year before taxes.
Nozar, who works as a delivery driver, said he hopes to use his winnings to buy a house.
Well duh. I hope so dude.
