Mega Millions Winners’ Stories

The Mega Millions is one of the most popular lottery games in the United States of America. This game is played in 43 states as well as U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia. While the jackpot starts at $15 million, it ultimately amounts to ten times that amount because of the sheer number of people playing.

Each ticket costs a minimum of $1 when purchasing in the USA and there are nine different ways to win, depending on the combinations of balls and numbers. The jackpot winner has to have all the numbers on their ticket match with the numbers announced. The numbers can either be chosen manually or at random. The randomly chosen numbers are called “quick picks”.

The Mega Millions winners’ story of November 2014 was that of an 80-year-old retired school principal, Harold Diamond. He became an overnight sensation when he won $326 million. His was a single winner lottery ticket. He bought the winning ticket by chance as he and his wife were returning home after voting on Election Day. When it started raining, they stopped at the Valero to have dinner and just bought the ticket on a whim. He has now chosen to withdraw the money in a lump sum amount and use it to help out deserving family members and the wider community.

The December 2015 Mega Millions winners’ story was that of Steve Tran, a delivery driver who realized he had won the prize nearly two weeks after it was announced. Because his job involves travelling through different cities, he had completely forgotten about buying this ticket. It was two weeks later, when he heard the place where the winning ticket was bought from, that it occurred to him that he had been there! This prize, the second largest jackpot in the history of the U.S., is a joint prize shared by two people. Steve Tran has still not decided how to withdraw his prize, which can be taken either as a lump sum option (in this case, $173.8 million before taxes) or as an annuity payment spread over 30 years.

The Mega Millions winners’ story of Rick Knudsen, who won $180 million in August 2014, was one of a series of incredible coincidences leading up to him choosing the lucky numbers that won him the lottery. He felt a hunch that he was having a lucky streak when he paid for five transactions over the course of the day and it all balanced out to even amounts. He didn’t have to pay change at all. Later, when playing at a casino, he ended up winning on seven different machines. That’s when he stopped and bought the Mega Millions lottery ticket. He has now quit his roofing business and is planning a trip to Alaska, which has long been on his wish list. He plans to donate an amount to his church and use the rest for his family.

Each of these winners have had their life changed significantly for the better with just one stroke of good luck!
