Everyone’s wish is to win an amount of lotto that will change their lives for better. Every lotto bet goes with a silent prayer of a win.
It wasn't his fortunate day: a man from Michigan, in the United States of America (US), died just days after winning the lotto. According to WJRT, Gregory Jarvis, 57, was discovered washed up on a private beach near Caseville's Saginaw Bay on a Friday morning by a local resident.
Jarvis had won $45 000 (about R668 000) in the lottery.
An autopsy would show that he drowned, but after discovering the winning lottery ticket in his pocket, there were suspicions of foul play in his death — notably at the hands of someone who desired Jarvis' newfound money for himself, but this was quickly ruled out.
Gregory Jarvis sought to pay his ticket, but his social security card was in bad shape and he needed to file for a new one, according to the station. Anyone who wins more than $600 in the lottery must present their social security card in order for their payment to be processed, according to state regulations.
