Retired Lakewood engineer Hank Robinson has been playing the same Lotto numbers since the game began in 1989.

On Sunday he learned that they had finally paid off -- to the tune of a nine-point-two million dollar jackpot.

His payout because he took the cash option was 4.6 million dollars.

The 81-year-old retired in 1993.

He would still be working if it wasn't for a quintuple heart bypass.

Because he took the cash option, he only won half as much.

And he will have to pay taxes.

He plans to spend a lot of the money helping family members as well as replacing his 1993 minivan. And he will continue to pay the same Lotto numbers.
