ODD NEWS: Man waiting to cash in $1,000 lottery ticket wins another $177,777

A Virginia man waiting to cash in his $1,000 winning lottery ticket ended up winning an additional $177,777 before collecting his prize.

Jeff Melick of Newport News told Virginia Lottery officials he was waiting until the lottery’s customer service centers reopened to cash in his $1,000 winning scratch-off ticket when he purchased a Lucky 7s Tripler ticket.

The ticket turned out to be a $177,777 top prize winner.

“I kind of went numb,” Melick said. “I was doing good with the $1,000 winner.”

Melick said he plans to use some of his winnings to pay it forward by taking care of strangers’ purchases at his local convenience store.
