"Jimmie Smith of East Orange, N.J., is a lottery ticket hoarder. He has old tickets going back many, many months and does not check them very often. However, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], when a local newscast reported that a jackpot awarded more than a year ago remained unclaimed, he decided to check his cache of tickets and found the winning numbers, worth $24.1 million.
Smith told the news service, UPI, that he has been playing the lottery since the 1960s, but is never in a hurry to check the winning numbers. “I always told myself, ‘I’ll check them when I have the time,’” he said."
