People often give up on playing the lotto because they do not win right away. Are you guilty of this? Have you tested the waters and haven’t won the big one? If so, you may be forgetting that sometimes, it takes years to win. I know, that’s not something that you want to hear, but it’s true. But before you throw in the proverbial towel, consider the story of James Decker.
James Decker is a Michigan native and he has been playing the lotto for years. He has been playing the numbers 05, 39, 54, 63, and 66 for a long time. So long that he doesn’t ever think he’s going to win. That is, until now.
The 81 year old man, after many years of lotto play has finally done it, he won the jackpot with his winning numbers. He didn’t change them, he just kept playing, and he is now the $1 million dollar Mega Millions winner in the Michigan lottery.
He will now live the rest of his days with a cool million to help him enjoy things. The media caught up with him and he stated that he was thankful, and he hasn’t decided what he is going to do with the money. But one thing is for sure, patience, and persistence pays off dividends.
