Man throws away lottery tickets that won $1.25 million

Man throws away lottery tickets that won $1.25 million
 Recently a Pennsylvania man encountered a most extraordinary stroke of misfortune. In a bizarre turn of events, the apparent lottery winner who had just struck gold by winning a whopping amount of $1.25 million in a lottery mistakenly threw away his series of winning tickets in the trash bin. According to recent reports, the unnamed man who has been playing with the same set of lotto numbers for the past few decades reportedly lives only a few blocks away from the grocery store where he purchased the lottery ticket. The tickets were reportedly purchased on 13th March 2013 at the Zhou Grocery situated in York. Interestingly all 25 of them were identical tickets, all had the same number sequence of 4-3-4-1-8. The tickets interestingly would have fetched him a massive fortune since their collective value was approximately $1.25 million. Unfortunately for the unlucky Pennsylvania resident, he however read the numbers incorrectly. As a result of the misinterpretation he threw away the million dollar tickets away that could have radically transformed his life. According to another report Wendy Hinton, a man who works at the Zhou Grocery in York, the unidentified person was mad at himself for committing such a silly mistake. However the Pennsylvania lottery authorities reportedly tried their level best to locate the missing winner when they put out a news release back in February 2014. They even put up a warning notice saying that whoever held the winning tickets has time until 13th March 2014 to cash them.  The lottery authorities suspected that the winner may have forgotten about the tickets and put them away in innocuous places like a kitchen drawer, wallet or even a pocketbook and hadn't bothered to check. However according to the lottery spokesperson unclaimed tickets are very rare since they compose only 1 % of the total number of tickets sold in the state and therefore the $1.25 million jackpot will now remain in the state Lottery Fund.
