Sandeep Singh, 22, is having the best string of luck in his life!
First his girlfriend dumps him, then he wins the lottery. Something straight out of movie, Singh won $30.5 million and says he is hoping not to get any calls from the woman who jilted him now that he's a millionaire.
As reported by Boston Globe:
“She broke up with me, but right now, I’m not really worried about it,” Singh said. “I was heartbroken at first, but now I’m getting over it.”
Singh, who currently works two jobs to help his family make ends meet, won $4 on a scratch-off lottery ticket and used those meager winnings to buy four quick pick Mega Millions tickets, including the winning $30.5 million ticket.
Singh, who goes by Sunny, came forward with his mother, sister, and niece Wednesday to claim his prize. Singh elected to receive the money in a lump sum payment of approximately $23 million. After taxes, he should net about $16.1 million.
It was Singh’s older sister who actually purchased the winning ticket for him.
Hopefully he’ll give her a nice cut of the loot. As for his ex-girlfriend, she’s probably thinking twice about dumping him, don’t you think?
