Jin the 50-year old hard-working father, couldn’t believe his luck, what with his 22-year old son carrying his winning ticket in his wallet for almost two weeks before discovering the big win. “I actually went to purchase a Mega Millions today and decided to check my Powerball ticket while I was there,” said Jin, smiling. “When I scanned the ticket, it said I won $50,000!” Jin asked the store clerk what he should do next, who instantly instructed him to head down to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim his prize, but he failed to tell his wife until him and his son were in Baltimore.
