Man wins $273m Lottery after Someone returned Ticket he Left Behind

New Jersey Lottery said in a statement that Weirsky "ventured out in a snowstorm" to scan the ticket at a nearby store.

Weirsky said during a press conference on Thursday that he purchased the ticket at QuickCheck nearby his home, where he often purchases lottery tickets.

Murray said she will not ask for a cut of the jackpot but hoped he do the right "moral thing" considering how long she supported him. He told lottery officials he had nearly lost the ticket the day he purchased it and said he forgot it at the counter in the store, but a good samaritan gave it back to the store clerk. To his surprise, he found that somebody had handed them in the day before.

"I don't want people downing him thinking he's the slouch", the caller said, calling him a "good guy".

Weirsky got divorced about five months ago.

"I just put the ticket back down, watched TV for about another half-hour". "I'm not going after anything". He's spent $20 per week on tickets, on and off, for years.

"I was a bum in high school, I was a bum after", he said with a laugh. "I'm going to keep that private".

The clerk said someone had turned them in.

"My parents raised me to be a good person, honest, sincere, " Campolo said. "I have morals. I know what I've worked for and it's everything that I have".

Lottery officials told AP on Thursday that the person who found the ticket could have claimed the jackpot had they held onto them. How long did I work?

Weirsky said the lottery win would change everything for him. He says he doesn't intend to take the job but will possibly start a business with family members.

Weirsky is taking the lump sum of $162.5 million and said he has bought a new truck and plans to buy a auto for his mother but has not made any other big decisions on how he will spend his fortune.
