Man Gives In-Laws $1M Lottery Ticket

Fred DePasqualeA Pittsburgh pharmacist has learned the $20 Pennsylvania lottery ticket he gave to relatives for Christmas has paid off big -- $1 million.

Fred DePasquale, owner of the Medicine Shoppe in the Brookline neighborhood, does get some money out of the deal, a $5,000 bonus from the state for selling a winning ticket.

DePasquale said he rarely plays the lottery. But he bought some $20 tickets for a special drawing -- 625,000 tickets with five $1 million prizes -- and gave them away as presents.

He has no regrets about his gift.
