Joemel Panisa, from Oregon has found a lottery ticket worth $1,000,000 just 8 days before it was due to expire! Panisa purchased the winning ticket on the 25th of January, 2016 at a mini market along a highway by the city of Newport, however he then placed it in his home office and completely forgot about scratching it. Luckily, after the weather brought ice storms and snow to the state of Oregon, Panisa found the motivation to clean out his office, which led him to find that very ticket worth a huge amount of cash! He claimed the ticket that same day, Monday the 9 th of January and handed it in to lottery headquarters to secure his winnings. Panisa is now the fourth Mega millions $1,000,000 winner from the state of Oregon since 2010. The lottery retailer will also receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
