There's nothing like having something in common, especially when it's winning $10,000! Pictured is Jayesh Patel of Lima. He won $10,000 on $5 Million Jackpot. Patel bought the ticket at the end of his shift because he could not get anybody else to buy it. A clerk at Marathon Food Mart in Lima, he decided to buy it after a customer had him tear it off the book. That customer did not realize that the ticket was a $20 ticket and changed his mind about the purchase. Patel tried to sell it all day long but had no takers. Realizing he had an extra $20 in his pocket at the end of the shift, he bought the ticket. It brought him $10,000.
