In Lansing, Michigan, a teenager won $500,000 from a lottery and is willing to give most of the money to his parents.
As the state lottery officials said, the teenager is a 19-year-old boy and wants to stay anonymous, but after claiming the prize on Friday, he told the lottery officers that he would give most of the money to his parents as only he will retain the amount of $5,000. The teenager replied to the question, “why?”
And his answer was that his parents had done all they could do for him and his sister, and this amount of money is just a small piece, and “if possible I will do more.” He also replies helping his parents is one of the goals of his life because no one can return what their parents have done to them, “everything you do will be lesser than what your parents did to you.”
The teen is said to buy the ticket at a Sunoco gas station, which is just outside of Lansing, and he also claims to have brought the only remaining Golden Wild Time ticket. And, he also scratched it off inside the store, and never thought to win it, as it was the only one with no choice for him to select.
According to the facts, the Golden Wild Time lottery game was launched in August, and its tickets are only $10 each, which had more than $18.5 million in prizes as of Friday, and that also includes a set of $10,000 prize money for 45 tickets each.
