Nick Slatten of Sparta, Tennessee, has been through a bit of a roller coaster this month.
He bought a $1 million winning lottery ticket. And then lost it … only to find it again later in the day.
Nick bought the ticket at a grocery store and realized he was a big winner. He was so excited that he shared the news with his fiancée. But, he wasn’t excited enough to take the day off.
Instead, he ran some errands, that included taking his brother to an auto parts store.
Somewhere along the way, Nick lost the ticket. Fear set in.
But, Nick retraced his steps and found the winning ticket in the parking lot of that auto parts store. It was on the ground and, luckily for Nick, nobody thought to pick it up.
Nick says that he and his fiancée plan to continue working, but plan to buy a new house and a car -- and invest the rest of the money.
