One of eight Israelis to win Monday's $10.2 million lottery jackpot insists luck had nothing to do with it, and is crediting God with providing the winning ticket.
Identified only as “Moshe,” the man told Israel's Channel 10 News that “time after time, [God] has stood by my side in my hour of need. Twice more in the past, I have won [the lottery], because I knew how to request from Him what I needed.”
Moshe's win was truly nothing short of miraculous. He had bought a lottery ticket earlier on Monday, but later that evening felt an urge to go buy another. He managed to purchase another ticket just 15 minutes before the lottery stands closed.
“I knew inside of me that this was the winning ticket,” said Moshe, who along with the other winners will receive approximately $1.4 million.
