Jerry Marchant says he'll talk to his financial advisor about his retirement fund after winning $1.58 million dollars in the Colorado Lotto.
The Colorado Springs resident says he has been buying two
tickets for every drawing since Lotto began.
He says he didn't realize he had won until last night. The
drawing was Saturday night.
Marchant says when he saw that all six numbers matched, he kept
looking at the paper in disbelief.
Marchant chose the cash value and will receive a check for just
over $561,000 dollars after taxes.
He says he'll probably meet family in Las Vegas and perhaps take
a cruise, but he'll keep working part-time for Hertz Rent-a-Car in
The Lotto jackpot will be one million dollars for Wednesday's drawing.
