One man’s lottery fantasy numbers netted his wife a $60 million windfall. Surprisingly, he received the winning numbers 20 years ago.
Even more amazing, the money arrived at precisely the right time. During the coronavirus epidemic, Deng Pravatoudom, like millions of others, lost her employment. The 57-year-old was out of work and cash-strapped.
Deng has been playing the same digits since her husband first dreamed of the winning numbers 20 years ago. After 20 years of playing the identical numbers, the numbers were eventually won on a Lotto Max ticket.
Dong Truong, her spouse, had numbers made up of significant dates such as family birthdays.
Surprisingly, the couple did not collect their award for another ten months.
“After prayers, I left my temple and proceeded to a neighboring mall to run some errands and check my Lotto Max ticket. I won a Free Play ticket and added Encore — I couldn’t think the ticket would be worth $60 million just a few days later!” Deng was willing to share.

Dong went to inform his wife that their ticket was a winner.
“For over 40 years, my husband and I have toiled as general laborers, attempting to preserve all we could for our family,” Deng explained.
“I was let off last spring because to the epidemic, so this money would undoubtedly make our life lot better.”
The couple, along with other family members, moved to Canada from Laos and were sponsored by a church. They have a daughter and a son-in-law, as well as two grandkids.
They’ve already started thinking about what they’ll do with the money. The couple want to pay off their debts and bless their relatives. They also want to travel.
“I have never actually traveled, except for when I came to Canada from Laos,” Deng said.
“I want to explore Europe, Texas, and Hawaii. I can’t wait to see the rest of the globe!”
