Irvin Przyborski went to do his taxes and discovered a $9 million winning looter ticket he purchased a year ago. If only preparing your tax returns was this awesome for everybody!
Last year, Przyborski was putting his tax papers into a file. Somehow, he said, one of the Lotto tickets he bought March 24, 2010, which turned out to be a $9 million winner, slipped into the folder. He didn't even miss it.
It wasn't until he reopened the file this month that he found the ticket, took it to the store and discovered that it was a winner. Przyborski contacted an attorney, who then called the Lottery on March 15 to claim the prize, said Lottery spokesman Tracy Owens.
