After the winning numbers were announced, the 44-year-old checked his ticket and couldn’t believe his luck. As a second source of confirmation, Rana asked his wife to cross-reference the information and was surprised herself. “She thought I was joking,” Rana told reporters. “So I went home and showed her the ticket. We just kept checking the numbers over and over again. We were both totally surprised.”
The news site adds that Rana was a devout lottery player, purchasing a ticket each week at his business. Now, he’ll receive a check worth $227,410 each year for life.
His plans for his mega earnings includes traveling back to India to visit family, and buying a house.
