Bobby Guffey has played the same numbers in the Indiana Lottery for years. The numbers represent various ages and birth dates.
Recently when he bought a ticket, it was dark inside the store and he didn’t have his reading glasses. When he got outside in the daylight, he realized that the last number he chose was an accidental 48 when he meant for it to be a 46.
That mistake won him $3 million.
Interestingly, after he realized he bought the wrong numbers, he went back inside the store to buy another ticket with the “right” numbers. That ticket won $1000, because it matched 5 of the 6 correct numbers.
“My wife says it pays to be blind,” Guffey said .
A little luck helps too.
