Richard O., the lucky winner, did not even think twice about claiming his grand prize after winning $1,000 a day for life in the Lucky for Life drawing held on Fri., Aug. 20, 2021. Monday morning the winner was ready to claim his prize as a lump sum and has plans to put the newfound wealth to good use.
As per reports, the winner and his wife own the Green Parrot Lounge in Florence and often play the lottery at their bar in their free time. However to state it clearly Richard is no rookie, though he has been playing since the lottery was established in 1983.
On Saturday, when the couple came to their office for work, the bar manager greeted them and questioned whether it was them who had won the top prize! As he was informed by the Lottery that the winning lottery ticket was sold at their establishment.
Wondering about the number of Lucky For Life tickets sold for Friday night's drawing, the couple immediately rushed to check the numbers on their lottery ticket.
And there they were, Richard had matched all six winning numbers - 8, 24, 36, 39, 45, and Lucky Ball 6, for Friday night's drawing.
The "Lucky For Life" couple, who have been married for 53 years told the Lottery that they are proud to be the residents of Centennial State, Colorado, and are out in the market to hunt a new single-level home since Richard's wife is suffering from multiple sclerosis.
