每日英語跟讀 Ep.K075: About the US - Man wins $2M after mistakenly buying extra lottery ticket
A detroit-area man who accidentally bought an extra lottery ticket has won two $1 million jackpots.
Samir Mazahem, 56, of Dearborn Heights said he was saving numbers on a lottery app after buying a $2 ticket for the Mega Millions game. He then realized that he had purchased a second ticket with the same numbers.
"I was a little bummed but didn’t think much about it," Mazahem said. Until he recently logged onto the app and found he had two $1 million winners.
"I couldn’t believe it was real," he said. "It took several days for the reality to set in." He plans to buy a new house and save the rest after claiming his prize.
The Super Bowl had 30,000 cardboard fans 超級盃擺了3萬個球迷人型立牌
Super Bowl LV kicked off between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida looked full with the help of some fake fans.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the NFL had approximately 25,000 in the stadium for the 55th Super Bowl, far fewer than the 70,000 fans that attended the big game the last time it was held in Tampa.
To make up the difference, the NFL produced 30,000 cardboard cutouts of fans to fill most of the remaining seats.
Unlike other sporting events where the cardboard cutouts are all bunch together in some areas of the stadium that receive the most TV coverage, the fake Super Bowl fans are spread out to keep the real fans socially distant.
The NFL charged fans $100 for each cardboard cutout at the game. That’s a cool $3 million in revenue to make up for some of the lost ticket and concession sales.
