Teenager Wins $500K Playing Lottery and Gives it To His Parents
A lucky teenager who won $500,000 on the lottery has given nearly all of his winnings to his parents.
The player, who has asked to remain anonymous, won the money on a scratch card lottery game. He said that he intends to invest about $5,000 of the winnings but will give the rest to his parents. Talking last week he said that his parents have done so much for him and his sister he is pleased to be able to help them out, “Helping them takes a big weight off of their shoulders and mine”.
He bought the winning $10 Golden Wild Time ticket at a Sunoco gas station in Michigan and scratched it off in store. At first he though the store staff were playing a prank on him but he then saw their genuine excitement and realised he had really won.
