Anytime you clean out a junk drawer, there will always be surprises, but nothing like a Florida man found when cleaning out his. Kenneth Morgan of Jacksonville, Florida, was tidying up over the Fourth of July weekend when he found an old lottery ticket. He’d bought the winner at his local Publix in April, then forgot to check it.
When he came across it again, he checked the numbers and found that he matched five from the drawing, but not the Powerball jackpot, making the ticket good for a $1 million payout. “I’m still in shock!” Morgan told Florida lottery officials. His local Publix, which sold him his quick pick numbers, gets a $1,000 bonus for the ticket, too.
