Tennessee Man Wins $2 Million Lottery, Thanks to Dad's Advice
A Tennessee man says his dad told him to play the lottery, so he did.
Donald Coffman is a grown man, but he does what his father tells him.
And he's very, very glad he did.
The Tennessee man said his dad told him to buy a Powerball ticket. "He told me to play and dream big," Coffman said in a Tennessee Lottery press release. "So I did!"
His ticket matched five of six numbers drawn Saturday. He added the Powerball Power Play for $1, which doubled his prize money.
"We called the store about this, and they were screaming and screaming," Coffman said. "They were as excited as us."
The couple said they will build a new house with their winnings, complete with a "man-diva cave."
