“I just started jumping,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

The “10X the Money” game features prizes ranging from $5 to $100,000. He’s the first top winner in the game, which means six $100,000 tickets are unclaimed. The odds of winning the top prize in this game are 1 in 1,049,143, while the odds of winning any prize in “10X the Money” are 1 in 4.28.
