Chicken Noodle soup is good for the bank account. Man wins money after making a choice to buy soup

A man in New York has an odd story to tell that involves a lucky can of soup, a scrach ticket and a burger.
Neal Damato won the New York Lottery’s Set for Life instant game, worth at least $5 million when he made a split second choice to spend $20 at a scratch ticket vending machine.
I was not working that day and told my wife that I wanted to go out for a burger for lunch, Damato said. After that, we did a couple of errands and my wife told me she wanted to go to Kohl’s. I sat in the car like I always do, feeling really stuffed from the burger. I decided to head over to the Stop and Shop for a can of soup for dinner because that’s all I had room for.
I scratched the first ticket outside the store and stood there in disbelief thinking, ‘Something’s not right here1’ he told Newsday. I double- and triple-checked, and then went looking for my wife. He opted to receive a lump sum of $2,624,617 after required holding and hopes to add Tahiti to the itinerary for his 50th wedding anniversary trip to Hawaii with his wife Carol. His wife said she would rather prioritize the prize money by spending it on their children. We both want to help our kids with their college bills and mortgages and pay off other bills the best we can, she said. Damato never ate the soup.
One thing is certain, he said. No one will ever open that can. I want them to bury me with that lucky can of chicken noodle.
