Two house painters in New Jersey and Kansas have become bonafide millionaires, but the money didn't come from their day jobs.

A lucky New Jersey house painter won a big payday when he recently bought a ticket for the $89 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Angel Guallpa-Mayancela, 32, of Orange, NJ, pocketed a cash payout of $65.7 million for the drawing held Jan. 25, the New Jersey Lottery just announced. He and his family claimed the prize Feb. 15 and were in “joy and disbelief,” lottery officials said.

House painter Angel Guallpa-Mayancela recently claimed a $65.7 million prize. It is unknown whether he will continue to paint houses.

“I’ve been telling my wife that someday she would be married to a millionaire, because I am a hard worker,” said Guallpa-Mayancela. “So when I told her that I had won the Mega Millions $65 million jackpot, she didn't believe me.”

The Lucky Numbers

A father of young children, the painter made his winning purchase from Lisa’s Deli and Grocery Store in Orange. His lucky numbers were 11, 12, 17, 31 and 48, the New Jersey Lottery said.

The jackpot roll has generated an estimated contribution of more than $5.6 million to support New Jersey’s sponsored institutions and educational programs, according to Carole Hedinger, executive director of state’s lottery. In fiscal year 2012, retailers earned commissions of more than $153 million, she noted.

Good Times Roll

Guallpa-Mayancela is not the only painter starting 2013 on a green note.

Early in January, a house painter from Wichita, KS, claimed the $1 million prize in the Kansas Lottery’s Holiday Millionaire Raffle.

The painter, in his 40s, wished to remain anonymous. He told lottery officials that he planned to use the prize money to purchase a new car and a house.

The Kansas Lottery reported that the winner, his wife, and their three children had to borrow a car to make the trip to claim the prize in Topeka.

The painter had bought five tickets at Dillons 31 in Wichita and found out Dec. 31 from the Kansas Lottery website that one was the winning ticket.

“The whole family started crying and hugging and jumping up and down,” he said. “This has truly changed our lives.”

The millionaire said that “something inside him” told him he was going to win the money, lottery officials said.

Lots of lottery players have "something inside them" telling them they will win the lottery.
