A Kansas Lottery player is even luckier because gas station employees tracked him down to return a Mega Millions ticket he dropped that was worth a million bucks. The anonymous winner told lottery officials that his brother dropped the ticket when he went in to the store in Salina to check them and had no idea it was missing.
Gas station workers found the ticket, scanned it and found out it was a $1-million winner, so the clerks tracked down it’s rightful owner, with some help from the store owner’s son. The winning man happened to drive back by the gas station and that’s when the owner’s son pulled out behind him and flagged him down.
“He explained what happened and handed me the ticket, and I just couldn’t believe it,” the winner says. He told Kansas Lottery officials that the store employees’ actions restored his faith in humanity.
