A Montreal man cleaning out his closet to donate clothes made an incredible discovery. Inside of an old jacket was a very valuable forgotten 2017 lottery ticket.

It turned out to be worth $1.75 million!

Gregorio De Santis says he was shocked to all of the sudden become a millionaire.

That 2017 jackpot was actually worth $7 million, before it was divided in four.

De Santis says he will use his new winnings to organize his retirement fund and see more hockey games with his nephew.
