Patience is a virtue, and it can pay off big time – just ask Stephen Munoz Espinoza! The 43-year-old Delray Beach resident recently won a whopping $1 million after a stranger cut in front of him at a lottery ticket machine in his local supermarket. Talk about a lucky break!
Munoz Espinoza was so impressed with his luck that he chose to receive a lump-sum payment of $820,000. He and his wife plan to use the money to purchase a new home for their family. The Publix where the ticket was purchased will also receive a $2,000 bonus commission.
It’s not just Munoz Espinoza who’s had luck on the lottery. A Maryland man was astounded to receive a $100,000 prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket, just over three years after winning $50,000 in a different lottery game. The man said he had used his previous earnings to remodel his home.
And that’s not all – a man in the United States won lottery prizes six times for a total prize worth over $2 million. Raymond Roberts Sr., a Vietnam veteran, won the $25,000 a year for life prizes in the December 14 drawing. He said his major win was the result of a gut feeling, noting that his “intuition” had led him to purchase multiple tickets with the same numbers.
It just goes to show that patience really is a virtue! You never know what might be waiting for you around the corner if you remain calm and patient. It’s an inspiring reminder that good things can come to those who wait!
