New York Lottery Winners Plan "Crazy Thing"

A couple who won the top prize in the New York Lottery's "20X the Cash" game has agreed to do one 'crazy thing' with their winnings and have settled on a second honeymoon in Hawaii.

Ronald Nau, 63, and his wife Diane have been married for 42 years and when the New York Lottery's Yolanda Vega presented them with their check Nau joked his wife only married him for his money, but it took her 42 years to get it.

Tickets for the "20X the Cash" game cost $5 and Nau's unplanned investment would have been worth $1 million if he had chosen to take it annuity payments, but Nau decided to take the lump sum option and walked away with $555,912.
