US accountant hits lottery jackpot

Florida-based accountant takes home more than £10m

Ian McNair, 26, an accountant from Coral Springs in Florida is one member of
the profession unlikely to be complaining about his wages after he took half of
the $42m (£21m) in the state’s
Lottery
.

According to the
Miami
Herald
, McNair was one of the two people to buy a winning ticket.

The paper reported McNair’s mother as saying he planned on taking his
winnings in 30 annual payments. ‘But he hasn’t lost his sense of
responsibility,’ she added.

According to Sara McNair, her son Ian will return to work tomorrow.

The winning numbers were 10, 11, 18, 24, 26 and 35.

A person’s chances of winning the Lotto jackpot are roughly one in 23
million, according to the Florida Lottery website.

The chances of being struck by lightening are 1 in 5,000.
