A US man from Pennsylvania somehow managed to win $1.25 million from the lottery, but decided to throw it away before realizing his mistake.
According to official reports, the lucky (but quite mindless) man has been buying 25 lottery tickets a day for quite some time now. The unnamed man has been buying the tickets from a Zhou Grocery store in York and has been trying to get his hands on the jackpot day after day. However, when his luck finally knocked on the door, he had already trashed the tickets. The reports state that the 25 tickets the man had bought earlier this March were worth $50,000 each, which means he could have gotten $1,250,000. Unfortunately, the man probably misread the numbers and decided to throw away his winning tickets.
Thus, he was never able to claim his prize. Since the tickets expired in March the lottery fund got to keep the money.
