US Woman Wins $1 Million Trying to Prove Lottery Tickets are a Waste of Time

A woman has won $1 million after buying a scratch card to prove to her husband that lottery tickets were a waste of money.

Glenda Blackwell from Leicester in North Carolina was asked by her husband to buy two Powerball tickets. To demonstrate to him what a waste of money the lottery is Glenda ignored his request and bought a $10 Carolina Millions scratch card for herself. Afterwards she said, “I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating”.

She has opted to receive a lump sum of $415,503 after taxes rather than 20 yearly payments of $50,000 as she said she isn’t sure she’ll live long enough to receive all the payments. Now she is planning on using the money to buy a house and set up college funds for her two granddaughters.
