A man in Maine is finding out that persistence really does pay off after a recent lottery win. Gregory McAllister told Maine Lottery Officials he started using his lottery numbers on his 27th birthday, which was decades ago. He’s been playing those same exact numbers for 35 years and they just made him a fortune.
McAllister’s lucky day happened in the October 28th drawing, when his trusty numbers finally came up. So how much money are we talking? His jackpot won him $3.2-million!
He’s not planning to quit the job he’s had as a bar manager for the last 20 years, because he says “the people and the place are like a home to me.” But he admits he may drop a couple of shifts now. “I just can’t believe I finally won,” McAllister says. “I feel great!”
