Luck runs out: Man loses $92K in winning lottery tickets
TAMPA - The same lucky lottery numbers, 7-1-5, that won a Florida man tens of thousands of dollars over the years banked him another $92,000 payout last month. And then his luck ran out: the 184 winning tickets, each worth $500, were nowhere to be found.
Walid Aboroomi searched high and low, even calling his garbage hauler to see if he might try to salvage the Florida Cash 3 tickets. He couldn't - his trash is taken to an incinerator.
Aboroomi told The Tampa Tribune he has a ticket from the lottery machine showing 184 tickets were sold on May 28. But lottery officials told him he must have the tickets to get the cash.
Aboroomi has had a lucky streak over the years, winning well over $1.5 million from various lottery games.
