Illinois postal worker wins $4 million lottery prize

June 29, 2015, 6:07 pm ET

An Elgin, Illinois, man has won a $4 million lottery prize after purchasing a ticket from Lundeen's Liquors in St. Charles.

Michael Stetar, 54, has been a letter carrier for the United States Postal Service for the past 17 years. He buys a lottery ticket weekly and won big after trying his luck on a new game.

He was on a break when he went into Lundeen's Liquors, 610 East Main St. in St. Charles, to get a snack and saw the Golden Casino ticket.

"I feel luckier when I play a new game so when I saw the Golden Casino ticket, I bought it, and I won!" Stetar said in the statement. "I scratched my ticket outside and then ran back into the store and had the clerk confirm that I really did win!"

Man forgets glasses, mistakenly buys winning lottery ticket

June 29, 2015, 11:17 am ET

A man in southwestern Connecticut who mistakenly bought the wrong lottery ticket is $30,000 wealthier.

Bob Sabo, of Easton, says he didn't want to wait in line to buy a lottery ticket at the Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield, so he decided to buy a ticket from a lottery vending machine - something he had previously never done.

Sabo says he meant to buy two $20 tickets, but says he didn't have his glasses on and instead bought a $30 ticket.

"When I got home and scratched the 30X ticket, I couldn't believe it--we won $30,000," Sabo told CT Lottery officials. "Winning the way we did was a very freaky thing!"
