A Huge Gift Came Her Way

TRENTON (Jan. 15, 2019) – Melissa Spagnola doesn’t buy lottery tickets for herself, only as gifts for clients and other people.

Her parents don’t even buy other gifts anymore – just lottery tickets. This time, Melissa’s father purchased lottery tickets and gave a 100X The Bucks lottery ticket to her, which she scratched off while she was with the family. Melissa didn’t know how to play that game, but thought she might have won; so, she showed it to her parents and asked “Is it real?” One look and they confirmed that it was, in fact, really a winning ticket for $2,000,000!
