68-year-old Jimmie claims $24 million lottery win after finding a year old lottery ticket

Jimmie Smith, a 68-year-old New Jersey man just had the greatest luck of his life money wise. He bought a lottery ticket then forgot about it, not knowing that he had the winning number. Jimmie Smith, retired security officer who lives in New jersey were he bought the lottery ticket in May 2016 totally forgot about it in the pocket of an old shirt hanging in his room.

For a whole year after the winner of the lottery was announced, Jimmie had no idea he had $24 million hanging in his closet. The New York Lottery kept announcing the winning numbers and for the lucky winner to come claim it but Jimmie had no idea he was the one.
What is yours in truly yours, this was the case of Jimmie who just two days before the one-year deadline expired Jimmie saw a news segment that alerted him to the Lottery’s efforts in finding a missing Lotto player.

Jimmie, who is a father of two and a grandfather of 12, decided to go in search of his ticket and was shocked to find that he was the winner with number,  05-12-13-22-25-35.  Jimmie said he’s been a consistent lottery buyer since the 1960s, but that he’s never rushed to check if he’s won.

With extreme joy he said: "I ended up with a stack; a pile of tickets, including the one they were talking about on the news. I stood there for a minute thinking, 'Do I see what I think I see?' I had to stick my head out of the window and breathe in some fresh air. I was in serious doubt. I really had to convince myself this was real."

Jimmie said: "I always told myself, 'I'll check them when I have time."

Jimmie Smith has just claimed his ticket and will receive his $24,100,000 prize by installmental payments over 26 years.
