Photo of Winning Lotto Ticket That Went Viral Is A Fake

Nolan Daniels did not win hundreds of millions of dollars as part of last week’s record breaking Powerball $588 million jackpot. But he did trick millions of people on Facebook into thinking he had.

On Thursday, Daniels posted a photo of himself holding a ticket with what looked to be the winning numbers on his Facebook page. The picture came with the message, “Looks like I won’t be going to work EVER!!!! Share this photo and I will give a random person 1 million dollars!”

Over two million people have done exactly that. But, alas, a random person won’t be getting a million dollars, as Daniels’ image is clearly a Photoshop  (The first five numbers in a Powerball ticket are always in chronological order, whereas the first five numbers in Daniel’s photo are not.)

Daniels, a software engineer from Arizona, isn’t the first person to use Photoshop as a part of Powerball prank. But he did think of a rather novel way to get his hoax to as many eyeballs as possible.

And, for that, he wins a grand total of zero dollars.
