How’s this for a crazy stroke of luck.
Marvin Martinez, 27, found a scratch off ticket for the New York Lottery game “Win $1,000 a Week for Life”.
He found the ticket whilst working as a landscaper in Hicksville, New York back in 2012. And was actually clearing up after Hurricane Sandy had paid a visit.
As he says:-
My co-worker was blowing the leaves and I was collecting them when I saw the ticket hiding between wet leaves. I still don’t know what made me pick it up.
