Georgia man wins $1M on forgotten lottery ticket

October 30, 2014, 9:03 am ET

A Savannah, Georgia, resident realized this week that it was no trick when he found a forgotten lottery ticket that led to a major treat: a $1 million prize.

David Bramble, 42, matched the first five numbers from the July 9 Powerball drawing, winning a $1 million prize.

Georgia Lottery representatives presented Bramble with an oversized check Wednesday at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Savannah.

His lucky lottery ticket went unnoticed for three months.

"I had these tickets that were sitting in my car," said Bramble, who claimed his prize Oct. 21.

10 Pennsylvania co-workers share $2 million Powerball prize

Maybe there was a glare on the machine, and maybe Stacia Thomas just didn't think it possible.

The Red Lion woman scanned her ticket and stared at the prize line on the Pennsylvania Lottery machine. She thought it listed $2,000, so she asked a clerk at the Sunoco A-Plus Market to read the amount for her.

$2 million. Yes, that really happens.

"'Oh, my God, I gotta go tell the girls!'" Thomas recalled yelling before rushing back across the street to the office at Industrial Distribution Group to tell her nine coworkers they'd finally struck it big.

New Jersey Lottery

NJ lottery winners dodge a tax bullet

October 28, 2014, 10:39 am ET

A proposed extra tax on New Jerseyans' lottery winnings stalled today after it became clear it was unlikely to be approved by a key state Senate panel.

"It didn't have the votes," said Senate Budget Committee Chairman Paul Sarlo (D-Bergen).

The bill (S1767) would impose an additional 0.5 percent tax on lottery winnings of more than $600.

The money would be used to fund after school programs run by non-profit groups in municipalities where at least 40 percent of the school district's students are "at risk."
