Mark Stenson had participated in the April 24, 2022 draw for Cash4Life not knowing what would come out of it. Surprisingly, for Stenson, huge prize money materialized in the form of $1,000 a Week for Life.
The winning numbers for the top prize for the April 24 draw were 48-46-33-14-7 and the number ‘1’ was the Cash Ball. Stenson matched 48-46-33-14-7, winning him the tier-2 prize money.

Stenson was lucky enough to have visited the 7-Eleven Store where he purchased the winning ticket from. The particular store is currently located at 675 Sunrise High, West Babylon.
Lover of the Game of Thrones Series
Stenson told the lottery officials he is a die-hard fan of the ‘Game of Thrones series. The places he saw throughout the series have embedded in his mind and he wants to visit them once in his life.
This was the ambition behind him saving up money and cutting down on his daily expenses. He had even decided to leave his job and go on a long journey to interact with the locals. He wanted to live life there and witness how it feels to be surrounded by such beautiful mountains and greenery.
He told the officials he is going to have a wonderful journey and planned on taking his best friend with him as well. He wanted to take him on the trip as well but was hardly able to manage the expenses for himself. Now, he has enough money to go there and live there for several months before coming back.
For Stenson, it was the only thing in his life he had ever dreamed of doing and now, his adventure will be extreme.
