Man Finds $24 Million Lottery Ticket in Old Shirt Pocket

NJ Man Finds $24 Million Lottery Ticket in Old Shirt After TV Report

A New Jersey man says a television news report led him to check lottery tickets he had stuffed in an old shirt, and one was a $24 million victor.

Smith said he needed some time after finding the $24 million victor "to clear out some cob webs" before making the trip to the Lottery's lower Manhattan Customer Service Center to claim the ticket.

Smith and his much-sought-after ticket have been the subjects of a much-publicized search undertaken by the New York Lottery to locate the would-be Lotto millionaire on the verge of forfeiting the prize as the one-year deadline for claiming it approached.

After completing a review, the NY lottery released Smith's name on Wednesday. He has been buying lottery tickets since the 1960s, he explained, but he never checks them immediately.

He said he'd check them when he had the time. The shirt's pockets were filled with lottery tickets that had not been checked. He had to buy a used shirt to find the forgotten lottery, which involved a 2016 draw and two days before its date of expiry, to display it to the competent body and collect the extraordinary amount of $ 24 million. I was in serious doubt.

Over a year ago, he purchased a New York Lotto ticket with the numbers "05 - 12 - 13 - 22 - 25 - 35". "I always told myself, I'll check them when I have the time", he said.

"I stood there for a minute thinking, 'Do I see what I think I see?"

According to the news outlet, Smith opted to receive his prize in installments over the next 26 years.

So earlier this year, the New York Lottery started to get the word out. Once thing calm down, he says he'll have a family discussion about the money.
