Husband Buys Wrong Ticket, Lands Him and His Wife Accidental $169 Million!

Husband Buys Wrong Ticket, Lands Him and His Wife Accidental $169 Million!

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Nancy Viola, and her husband Vito Viola, 37 have landed themselves a monumental $169 million with MegaMillions thanks to his mistake.

Nancy asked her husband, a NYPD sergeant to buy her some Powerball tickets as the jackpot had grown to $900 million, however he ignored her and bought $1 QuickPick ticket- which ended up having all the winning numbers of: 11, 39, 51, 57, 75 and Mega Ball 2. When she realised all the numbers matched up, she thought she was having a heart attack- there was lots of screaming and excitement yet the pair kept the big news to themselves for months.

Finally, they opted to claim a lump-sum of $64,796,160 which they cashed in by setting up a foundation called The Orbity Fund LLC. They stated: “It’s just absolutely amazing, anything is possible. Maybe a Convertible. Everything is so new still. It has to just settle in, you know, see what happens. Buy a big house? Maybe in the future. It’s a lot of money”. The winning ticket was purchased from the 2520 Foodmart in the Willowbrook part of Staten Island.
