This man didn’t listen to what his wife said, but it turned out to be a big mistake.
Nancy Viola, a 37-year-old housewife from Staten Island, won $169 million when she played the lottery.
Nancy told her husband, who is a police officer in New York City, to buy Powerball tickets at the store.
Instead, he went his own way and bought a cheaper Mega Millions ticket.
On January 8, the ticket was a winner right away.
Aside from the screams that came from their house when she saw that the numbers matched, the couple kept quiet until they could get a group of financial experts together.
This week, they turned in the winning lottery ticket and chose to get their money all at once, which after taxes would be more than $64 million.
