American multimillionaire almost forgets to return his winning ticket

An American forgot that he had bought a lottery ticket, until he returned to the place of his purchase. To his great shock and joy, he was almost 8 million euros richer.

Excited by a friend's explanation, Wilbur Brown decided to buy a ticket from the Megabucks lottery on Christmas Eve. At the Moose Lodge in Springfield, Oregon, he bought a total of 26 consecutive lottery draws for 25 dollars. During the first few weeks Brown checked to see if he had won anything, but eventually forgot about his ticket.

Winning Lottery numbers

When the man recently returned to the Moose Lodge and scanned his ticket, the message 'Large Lottery Winner' appeared on the screen. His numbers 15, 33, 34, 40, 42 and 47 were good for no less than 8.8 million dollars. The man will receive about 185,000 euros annually after tax for the next 30 years.
