Chicago resident Christopher Kaelin has proved Lady Luck truly is on his side after winning a hat-trick on the same lotto game – netting a total of $276,000.
After his third win he had mistakenly read his ticket to believe he had won $25,000, but had actually won $250,000.
Mr Kaelin said although he had landed a huge sum, it wasn’t so big that it carried too hefty a tax burden.
‘[The prize] is big enough to where it’s obviously life-changing, but not so big that it’ll be a problem,’ he told the Huffington Post.
Mr Kaelin’s plans for his winnings sound rather sensible – pay off student loans, buy a house, pay for his wedding and save for his daughter’s college fund. On other news, checkout this article about cheap loans for bad credit.
