Woman Gets Free Lottery Ticket and Wins $1 Million
A woman in New Jersey and her family are very happy after having won $1 million on a free lottery ticket in April.
Carole Halleran of Wayne, New Jersey, is a fan of clipping coupons. So when she saw a “buy one, get one free” offer for a CASH4LIFE lottery ticket in her local newspaper, she didn’t hesitate to cut it out. She put it in her wallet for safekeeping.
She remembered the coupon later when she went into the ShopRite location at 625 Hamburg Turnpike to grab some coffee for herself and her husband. She exchanged the coupon for a free Quick Pick ticket worth only $2.
The next day, Carole’s daughter called her to tell her what she’d heard on the news: the same ShopRite location in Wayne had sold a winning CASH4LIFE $1,000 a Week for Life second-tier jackpot ticket on the same day Carole had purchased hers. She told Carole she ought to go online and double check the winning numbers.
Carole verified the numbers reported on the news. She couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw the results. The ticket she had received for free contained all the same numbers except for the Cash Ball. She had the winning ticket!
One Big Payout
With her ticket, Carole had won the right to choose between either $1,000 a week for the rest of her life or a one-time cash payout of $1 million. After discussing the option with a financial advisor, she and her husband chose the $1 million.
