A Man Won the Lottery with the Numbers from His Truck's Broken Odometer?
A man in Maryland won a $25,000 lottery jackpot by playing the numbers from his truck's broken odometer. It's stuck at 82,466 miles, so he uses the numbers 8-2-4-6-6 to play the lottery every day.
If you're picking numbers to play in the lottery, there are COUNTLESS inspirations to draw from . . . special dates, lucky numbers, fortune cookies, sports scores, or the code numbers on your Kohl's Cash.
But this is new: A 60-year-old man in Maryland won a 50-cent Pick 5 drawing, by using the numbers from his truck's BROKEN ODOMETER.
He says he bought an old truck with an odometer stuck at 82,466 miles, so he uses the numbers 8-2-4-6-6 to play the lottery every day. The numbers came up in last Friday's drawing, earning him a cool $25,000.
And his luck didn't start there. This is actually his THIRD jackpot. He won $50,000 from a drawing in 1995, and $100,000 from a scratch-off ticket in 2008. Those weren't using odometer numbers though.
The guy says the $25K will go toward "bills" . . . he didn't mention anything about getting that odometer fixed.
