Mr. Rechnitz, who described the prank as “despicable,” told ABC News that he wants the nurse to have some fun with the situation and that he will buy an all-expense paid vacation for the nurse and her family to anywhere they choose.

The 62-year-old woman was the recipient of one of 18,000 tickets that Reb Shlomo Yehuda bought for his employees and residents at 80 nursing home across California.

The winning ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven located at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway in Chino Hills, California. While the nurse won’t be collecting her millions, at least she’ll get to enjoy an all-expenses paid trip courtesy of Reb Shlomo Yehuda. Not a bad deal.
