It seems that not everyone lost money betting on Bernard Madoff: A New York construction worker reportedly used the swindler's prison number to play the lottery and win $1,500.
Ralph Amendolaro played the last three digits seen under Madoff's mug on the front page of the New York Daily News the day after he pleaded guilty. He played the number, 61727-054, at a corner store near his Glendale, N.Y. home for March 14-16, and on the last day, 054 came up.
Amendolaro told the tabloid that he plans to hand a chunk of the cash over to his wife for a 50th birthday trip to Las Vegas with friends, as well take his family out for a nice dinner.
“Hopefully it will turn into more money,” he said.
The father of three quipped that Madoff will probably look to charge him on the 16,000% return if he ever found out about the winning.
