One man or woman's nightmare, was another man's gain.
However, notice the payout of $183,000. The Rainbow Six consolation only paid $36,659.22 for a 20-cent bet.
This man took a $72 ticket for a dollar. And hit the bet five times. If he took it for twenty cents and he was the only winner - he wins the whole pool.
As Daryl Kaplan put it on twitter.....
Wonder how many others are playing $1 tickets not realizing they are excluding themselves from $1.4 million? @Pullthepocket @jeffporchakNot only one bettor missed out on a jackpot score of a lifetime. The bettor with this $1 ticket never even had a chance.
