Did you know that the store that sells the winning lottery tickets gets commission for selling the ticket?
Well, when you sell yourself the winning ticket, it’s a double win. You get the lottery winnings plus the commission.
That is what happened to Ron Rea who owns twos Tobacco World stores. He has one in Uniontown and another one in Bell Vernon, Pa.
He sold himself a 1.8 million dollar lottery ticket. The commission for selling the winning ticket is $10,000,
Ron bought his winning ticket at his Belle Vernon store. Ron likes playing the games with the highest odds of winning.
He is quoted as saying, “It you hit, your life’s changed.”
He beat the odds this time.
The ticket Ron purchased ended up being valued at $1,782.432.
Ron plans on the money helping him and Rita his wife with their retirement savings.
That sounds like a real good plan to me. Ron is 68 years old and this nest egg is definitely going to be a big help with retirement.
