How many times have you popped a scratch-off ticket in a birthday card, or received one in a card sent to you? Have you ever thought about what you'd do if it was a winning ticket?
A mother and her 20-year-old college student daughter were recently thrilled and surprised when a family tradition won the daughter a million-dollar lottery jackpot.
With Erin Haggerty at school, her mother, Diane, sent her daughter a St. Patrick’s Day card that came with a "Win $1,000 a Week for Life" ticket inside. And sure enough, Erin won a guaranteed $1 million prize!
Even after taxes, the prize is life-changing money and Erin admits she immediately starting thinking about her life after college. And, not surprisingly, one of the first things she did after telling everyone the news was to go shopping.
So be honest: if someone sent you a winning lottery ticket or scratch-off, would you split the money with them?
