We’ve all heard the saying “Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck.” But for one man, a penny found in a hotel parking lot in Omaha, Nebraska, it couldn’t have been more true. He turned that penny into $200,000. Humberto Alejandre found himself the lucky winner of a $200,000 lottery jackpot after picking up that lucky penny. Listen how cool this is!
Humberto Alejandre was on a road trip from Florida to Colorado when his car broke down in Omaha, Nebraska. After stopping at a hotel overnight, he saw a shiny penny lying face up in the parking lot. Humberto didn’t think too much of it but decided to pick it up anyway.
You’re never too rich to pick up a penny when you see one.
Humberto then went to a nearby convenience store and used that lucky penny to scratch a lottery ticket, to his surprise his luck had changed. Humberto had just won a $200,000 lottery jackpot! According to the Nebraska Lottery, the odds of Humberto winning were 1 in 140,000. The victory led him to plan to use the winnings to fix his car and continue the journey to Colorado.
“Find a penny pick it up all day long you’ll have good luck!”
So especially today on ‘Lucky Penny Day‘ if you see one grab it and go gamble somewhere because it could change your day and bring you some great luck. But now the only question we have to ask is which side of the penny is the better luck? Heads? Or Tails because tails never fails.
Are you superstitious or do you have a lucky item you carry with you?
