What's Fresh 11/01/2018

A South Canterbury man celebrated his first Division lottery win with a well-deserved trip to KFC.

After winning $166,667, the man would have a lot of thinking to do regarding what he should do with all the cash. Perhaps it's not surprising he took a trip to KFC to eat some chicken and think. 

The man was finishing his shop when he checked the ticket: 

When I handed my ticket over to check in-store, it made that winning noise, and the lady behind the counter had a grin from ear to ear,

When she showed me the prize receipt I said 'oh cool, $166, can I get that paid out now?' She told me to take another look, and that's when I saw the extra numbers on the receipt.
