According to Good News Network, the lottery winner “never indulges in spontaneous purchases, but after running to the store to get mushrooms for his pasta sauce, he got a sudden urge to play the lottery.”

Lewis went to the store to buy a last minute ingredient that was missing for the pasta he was preparing. He was preparing a “two-day sauce my dad used to make”

Receiving a $10 change from his purchase, he felt a sudden urge to drop by the vending machine to buy a Set For Life scratch-off ticket. Interviewed by the New York Gaming Commision, Lewis said: “I never put money on those things. What possessed me to be in that store at that time with just the right amount of money in my hand for that machine I will never know.”

The overwhelming feeling of winning a huge prize money has made Lewis think about he will do with his unbelievable rewards. He has opted out of receiving the whole jackpot but instead wanted to receive an increment allowance of $172,000 per year.

The Good News Network said that he “plans on using his most recent payment to help out a family member with some medical bills.” Lewis also plans to take a ski trip.
