Lucky couple will pay off home with lottery winnings

Gordon and Linda Alsberg of Malta were having coffee last Thursday morning, as they usually do. Gordon was reading the week's lottery results in the daily newspaper and Linda was looking through three or four tickets they typically buy each week.

"He always reads me the numbers and I always look through the tickets," Linda said.

"Yup," she'd say to Gordon as a number would match.



"Nope," she said. "Why didn't you say 37 instead of 27?"

"I did," was Gordon's reply.

And suddenly, the Malta couple was $59,700 richer.

The Alsbergs said that is enough money to pay off their house, and that is what they are going to do.
