Boy, Did He Get the Right Numbers

The management of the Payis Israel national lottery is waiting for an unknown person to come to their office and claim the largest prize in the history of the lotto’s weekly gamble. The ticket was correctly filled in by a Ramat Gan resident and carry-overs from previous weeks when there were no correct entries brought the prize money up to 2.4 million Shekels (about $200,000). The person paid 35 Shekels (about $3) for his entry form.
