Ex-NFL star Domata Peko‘s father-in-law had a helluva Tuesday — it turns out his gas station sold the $2 BILLION Powerball-winning ticket … resulting in a $1 million payday!!
The 37-year-old former Bengals nose tackle — who played the majority of his career in Cincinnati — shared the exciting news just now … saying, “My Father In-Law Sold the winning PowerBall (ticket) 2 billion $”
Joe Chahayed — who owns the Joe’s Service Center gas station in Altadena, CA — turned into a local celeb after it was announced he sold the winning ticket … with folks in the area heading to his store to take selfies with him.
Joe told reporters he’s had some winning tickets in the Super Lotto and Fantasy 5 at his location in the past — but those tickets were only worth up to $9,000.
BTW — Domata reportedly made over $47 million in contract money over the course of his career.
Joe says he’s not going to retire just yet … but his family can expect a really nice Thanksgiving.
