That's how much the unemployed laborer and father of five took home yesterday when Lonchay cashed in his Powerball winnings at the offices of the state lottery â€“ all on numbers he says came to him in his sleep years ago.
â€śI know, it sounds crazy,â€ť says Lonchay. â€śI wrote them down. I kept playing them â€“ faithfully.â€ť
