A Michigan man won $45,000 in a lottery game – but drowned with the ticket in his wallet before he was able to cash it.
Gregory Jarvis, 57, was at the Blue Water Inn in Caseville on Sept. 13 when he played the Club Keno add-on game The Jack — and hit the jackpot, WJRT of Flint reported.
“Very nice guy, he was here every day,” joint owner Dawn Talaski told the news station. “Somebody said someone just won The Jack and he said, ‘Great,’ and someone asked him, ‘Was it you?’ and it was, so he was super excited.”
Talaski said Jarvis returned to the inn almost a week later and bought rounds of drinks, but had still not cashed his winning ticket because he didn’t have the proper documentation.
“He couldn’t cash it because he didn’t have a Social Security card at all, it wasn’t any good, so he applied for a new one,” she told WJRT. (Read more from “Man Drowns With Winning Lottery in His Wallet” HERE)
