New Jersey Lottery:
Mike Ducker has started this New Year with a lot of luck, a third round of luck in fact. He has hit the top jackpot prize of $200,000 with the $500 frenzy game.
However this is not Ducker’s first experience of hitting the lottery prizes, he began playing back in 2013, winning $20,000 on a 20X cash scratch off ticket around Christmas, fast forward a few weeks and he’d claimed another $20,000 with the same game, totalling up $40,000 all in all from his purchases at the Singin Oil auto-repair shop in Lakewood. However the top prize, he wasn’t expecting to win, he described the situation as an “overwhelming experience”. When he tried to scan the ticket, the self-checkout came out with an error message, he checked over and over again before coming to terms with the fact that he was a winner!
Ducker says he participates in the lottery more than the average person, having spent a total of $125,000 on it, but has won $300,000. He plans to put down a portion of the money on a deposit for a house and additionally buy a new vehicle. The retailer, Sarath Mamdapadi will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the ticket. “Anything can happen in Jersey” they say!
