Linskey won about $14 million in 1991. The catch is that Linskey bought the ticket from a liquor store owned by mobster Whitey Bulger, a crazy man straight from some Hollywood gangster flick. Bulger decided to have a meeting with Linskey. Afterwards, Linskey was all to eager to claim that he bought the ticket alongside the mobster Bulger. Linskey probably forfeited about $7 million so he could keep his life.
