If Not of “Courtesy”, This Mom Could’ve Been US$590 MILLION Richer (but she has zero regrets)

Florida, USA— The lottery, as we know it, is a popular game that is being played all over the world in different forms and in different names, but shares one common goal; to change people’s lives in an instant, by the MILLIONS.

Indeed, BIG jackpots have been everyone’s motivation in playing this century-old game of chances. But for Mindy, a mom from Zephyrhills-Florida, a playful twist-of-fate taught her that lottery can lead people to something that is more valuable than winning jackpots, or rather, that May 13 POWERBALL jackpot amounting to US$590 MILLION— and it’s called kindness.

THE LUCKY MOVE

That day in 2013, Mindy Crandell, 34, checked in to Publix supermarket along with her daughter Mallory to get a Powerball entry as the jackpot for the lottery that time has reached a record-breaking US$590 MILLION.

While attending to her children in a line to the counter, an old lady Gloria C. Mackenzie, 84, suddenly cut in front of Mindy that her 10-year old daughter noticed.

“Mom, there's a lady in front of us,” Mallory told her mother.

Mindy saw that the lady is now in front ahead of her, but with the kindness in her, she decided not to make a deal out of it as a courtesy to the old Mackenzie.

“I noticed that the lady was there. (but) Didn't pay a lot of mind to it”

More than the two knew it, the lady at the counter also saw what happened so she halted Mrs. Mackenzie to allow Mindy to retake her place but the latter declined the offer.

"Go ahead, " she told the old lady who bought one Quick-Pick ticket and left the store.

Mindy and her daughter got their own Quick Pick ticket next to the lady and went home to wait for the results of the Powerball that will be drawn later that day.

THE REVELATION

Powerball had its draw that night of May 13 and it was announced that someone from Florida got the combination right — but it was not Mindy Crandell or anyone she might know of.

But she was wrong.

When the winner of the US$590 MILLION Powerball jackpot finally emerged in national television to claim the historic prize weeks after, Mallory, Mindy’s 10-year old child immediately recognized a familiar figure who she believes they have met in Publix that same day when they bought a ticket.

 "My daughter was like, 'Mom, look at the lady!'" Crandell said.

As clear as it is, the lucky winner of that record-breaking Powerball jackpot is Gloria C. Mackenzie, the same old lady who Mindy open-heartedly allowed to take what supposed to be her turn on the counter for the Quick Pick.

In line with it, a statement by Mrs. Mackenzie revealed that her winning lottery number could have gone to another woman’s hands who she says was “kind enough” to courteously let her buy her Quick Pick ticket first which happens to be Crandell.

THE OTHER BIG WINNER

That simple gesture of whole-heartedly giving her supposed spot to an old lady might’ve cost her fortune, but without any regret on how fate played with her that day in Publix, Mindy wishes all the best for Mackenzie for the multi-million win.

"(I hope the win) truly blesses her family," she said.

"It could have been us, but things happen. Sometimes it's better to be patient than right. I knew we were teaching our daughter the right thing,"

Crandell added.

For sure, more than anything, Mindy Crandell will be the proudest mom for being able to teach her child a valuable lesson of “Kindness” that happened that day in Publix which Mallory will bring inside her for the rest of her life.

How “Positivity” Helped a 20-year-old Man Win $451 MILLION

Florida, USA— After a series of big time rollovers, the MegaMillions jackpot prize the night of January 5 this year has reached a record-breaking amount of $451 MILLION—4th largest in the multi-state lottery’s 15 years of history— and the much-awaited draw attracted individuals not just in the USA but in all corners of the globe, hoping they win one of the grandest jackpot prize in lottery history.

After the drawing that was shown in live telecast, it was immediately announced that there is one (1) lucky player in Florida, who is now the newest MegaMillions Multi-Millionaire after getting the exact winning combination 28-30-39-59-70 plus the Mega Ball 10 to win the $451 MILLION jackpot prize.

Oh. My. God.

These are the first few words that the “world’s luckiest person” that day posted on his Facebook wall just minutes after realizing that one of the tickets he holds in his hands is the single winner of the massive jackpot amount.

He is Shane Missler, a 20 year old man who works as a verifications specialist at a local background screening company before a single winning MegaMillions ticket changed his fortune forever.

More than anything, keeping a positive mind-set has been the main key to Missler’s triumph. The day he bought his ticket is just a typical day where he had a gut feeling that something good awaits him. With that positive vibe, he decided to go to a lottery agent and buy a scratch card to try his luck of winning quickly.

Sure enough, his scratch card won an amount but instead of putting the winnings inside his wallet and call it a day, he used his scratch card winnings to buy five (5) MegaMillions “Quick-Pick” tickets that include the one that got him the massive pot prize.

In a statement he said,

“If there is one thing I have learned thus far in my short time on this earth it is that those who maintain a positive mindset and stay true to themselves get rewarded”

Indeed, how much more of a reward could you wish for if you have become a multi-millionaire in a single night, at a very young age of 20. But for Missler, who is now enjoying his brand new life with those winnings that he put in trust funds and investments, being prepared and knowing how to handle such a BIG fortune like his is more important than anything else.

“Although I’m young, I’ve had a crash course this week in financial management and I feel so fortunate to have this incredible wealth and team behind me,”

“I intend to take care of my family, have some fun along the way and cement a path for financial success so that I can leave a legacy far into the future.” Shane added.

In the end, lottery is a game of chances and to win it requires the right opportunity, courage and luck. Here in Overseas Subscribers Agents, we pave the way for you to smoothly enter your favourite global lotteries including the MegaMillions, US Powerball, EuroMillions and many more, at the most rewarding and convenient way possible.

“The power of POSITIVE-THINKING should never be underestimated”
