Big Surprise For Hard-Luck Couple


Just when things look hopeless, sometimes an unexpected breakthrough happens.

Just ask David and Beth Loomis of Columbus, Ohio.

David Loomis lost his job last year, and his unemployment benefits were about to expire. But while Beth Loomis was walking their dog Tuesday morning, she found a dollar and thought, “I guess this might be our lucky day,” she told CNN affiliate WBNS.

Boy howdy.

Ohio Lottery officials had invited the couple to come to lottery headquarters to pick up a hat and cup consolation prize from a 2010 drawing. Many people hope to be the kind of person who can get the main prize, which is why many opt to play with Visa when it comes to their gambling.

Be it the lottery or any other option out there, there is always a hope that, perhaps this time, it will be the one that changes everything. It seems that for this couple they had missed that jackpot, and so they arrived on the scene with that knowledge, likely happy to receive anything at all.

What they didn’t tell the Loomises was that there also was a $150,000 check waiting for them from a lottery ticket David Loomis had bought last year. What luck! With a lucky streak like that, one might be tempted to follow this link and check out some casino games online to see if their luck continues!

When the surprise check was presented, David Loomis gaped at his wife, then spun his chair halfway around, speechless. Then both husband and wife wept.

They plan to use the money to pay off bills and perhaps make a down payment on a house, Beth Loomis told WBNS.
