An Australian man recently claimed $143,920 in lottery winnings. When officials asked him where he had purchased the ticket he said he hadn't purchased at all. It was a birthday gift.
"My wife was reading the paper, and she saw they were looking for a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot winner from Tumut," he said. "I remembered I had some tickets that I'd been given as a birthday gift, so I came down to the news agency to check them."
"That's when I found out I won. I thought 'Oh, my God,'" the man recalled.
He made no mention of giving any of the money to the person who gifted him which brought us to our text question today. The consensus seemed to be that even though was under no obligation to fork over any dough, a nice little kick back makes sense.
