Brother saves a lottery ticket from a rubbish bin

A Montana resident was surprised to realise that a $50,000 winning ticket she wanted to throw away was saved by her brother. Virginia Busko-Gewald explained to Montana Lottery officials that she was motivated by her brother's lottery-playing habit to buy lottery tickets at the Great Falls Albertsons. Even though her brother is a regular player, she couldn’t decide what game to play, so she went for the first lottery game the shop clerk suggested: Powerball. Busko-Gewald added that she intends to pay some bills, pay a visit to her nephew in Korea and also to her niece in New York.
