Woman won $1 million trying to convince her husband lottery is pointless

Woman won $1 million trying to convince her husband lottery is pointlessA North Carolina woman who said she wanted to prove to her husband that playing the lottery is a waste of money bought a $10 scratch-off and won $1,000,000, The Huffington Post said on Wednesday.

I had to eat my words, Glenda Blackwell said in a release from the state lottery commission.

But those are pretty good words to eat, she added.

The 57-year-old from Leicester said she purchased the ticket Saturday after her husband asked her to pick up two Powerball tickets. She instead grabbed the Carolina Millions scratch-off for herself.

I wanted to show him that luck doesnt always hit, she said.

It didnt quite work out that way.

When I scratched the two, there was $1,000,000 winner under the two, Blackwell said.

Blackwell said she was in total disbelief until she was handed a blown-up check bearing the seven-figure sum on Monday.

Weve struggled a lot, so now we can buy our own home and our own land. Itll be paid for and I dont have to worry about that no more. So, thats what I plan to do with some of the money and the other part I plan to help my daughter and to put money up for my two granddaughters for college, she told the local Ashville station.

Blackwell chose the lump sum of $415,503 instead of receiving 20 annual payments.
