Iowa resident wins $1.000.000 with a ticket he wasn’t planning to buy

Scooping an amazing $1.000.000 Mega Millions windfall is one of those things you simply can’t plan. As a matter of fact, Bob Hollenback who won this impressive prize didn’t even intent to buy a ticket that brought him this incredible fortune. His spontaneous decision made him $1.000.000 richer, and you could snatch even more cash with Christmas Lottery – play your numbers right to become a winner of a gigantic $1.000.000.000 windfall! 

The lucky Iowa resident matched the five main numbers in the Mega Million draw on October 23rd, when this game offered a historic $1.537.000.000 jackpot. He already had a ticket for that night’s draw, but decided to get another after making a stop at the Hy-Vee gas station located on Elmore Avenue in Davenport.

“I realized when I went into the gas station, I already had another lottery ticket for the same night. Something just told me, go ahead and buy another. It ended up being the winner – at least my winner,” said Hollenback after claiming his prize at the lottery headquarters in Clive.

He was a huge fan of draw games long before scoring $1.000.000, but never managed to collect a prize this big. Retired computer analyst and farmer always had an eye for numbers and realized his ticket was worth a fortune right away.

“I just remember numbers fairly well and for some reason those numbers stuck with me. And when I looked at the ticket, I thought, ‘We won.’ That's about all. No jumping up and down,” joked Hollenback and said he’ll share the money with his family, after going on a trip and buying some land.
