North Liberty Man Wins Lottery!
Congratulations to 92-year-old Charles "Chuck" Svatos! The Iowa Lottery has just announced that Chuck won the September 25th drawing of Lucky for Life. He matched all six numbers correctly, and scored $25,000 a year - FOR LIFE!
At 92, it's no surprise that Chuck took the cash option. After taxes, he'll walk away with $390,000. He told the Iowa Lottery, "I had a feeling my luck would be changing after reading my fortune cookie." It turns out, the fortune cookie said he would be coming into some wealth...I guess it was right!
Chuck picked his own winning numbers. It's funny, he didn't check his ticket until a week later. His plans for the cash are to take trips to Hawaii and Switzerland.
I'm so happy for Chuck, enjoy your cash my friend!
