This couple from Pennsville, NJ are $5.2 million richer after winning Monday's Pick-6 XTRA jackpot.Sam and Kathy tell CBS News that when they heard their was a winning ticket, they immediately went online and were shocked to discover it was them!
Reportedly, the 5 numbers they played were their grandkids' birthday, which is the same trick my own father does. Unlike my father, they ended up actually winning the jackpot.
Thanks to the win, the store that sold the ticket, Rachel's Deli, will also be receiving a $10,000 bonus.
