Bartender Wins $50,000 After Customer Leaves Lottery Ticket As A Gift

#Roommates, sometimes you never know where your good fortune can come from. That’s likely how a local Missouri bartender is feeling after hitting the lottery jackpot for $50,000—and it’s all thanks to a lottery ticket given by a customer.

As @People reports, Taylor Russey, who works at Bleachers Bar in O’Fallon, Missouri, said she has a regular customer who frequents the bar and often leaves behind lottery tickets, well this time the ticket turned out to be a big winner worth $50,000. Much to her surprise, she found herself on the receiving end of a winning lottery ticket thanks to the generous customer — even though she said she actually didn’t realize it initially.

Russey stated she was shocked to learn that someone who bought the ticket won and wasn’t speaking up…until she realized that someone was her. Upon realizing her good fortune, she scanned it and matched four of the five white-ball numbers drawn on October 19th, plus the Powerball, giving her a total of $50,000 in lottery winnings.

Speaking about the customer’s generosity, Russey stated:

“One of the regulars will buy the rest of the regulars in the bar lottery tickets every now and then, especially when it’s high. And he did that on Saturday — he bought us all lottery tickets. [Later] I was like, ‘Guys, who won all this money and didn’t tell anybody?’”

As of right now, Russey didn’t elaborate on if she plans to share any of her winnings with the customer, but it would be nice if she gave him something for such an amazing act of kindness.
