This poor guy is having some serious Larry David type luck.
The winner of a $1 million lottery scratch ticket may not be so lucky after all: He’s a convicted bank robber who isn’t supposed to gamble.
I’m guessing he disguised himself as Santa during his bank robbery days. Now he’s incognito as a member of ZZ Top.
I say give the guy a million dollars. He’ll stop robbing banks (hopefully) and maybe he’ll even get robbed by some old “work acquaintances.”
More than anything, I think it sends the wrong message that playing the lottery is gambling. As if the odds of winning are on the same level as blackjack or roulette. Playing the lottery is just throwing your money away or taxing the poor.
