A US Mega Millions story you’ll never believe
Out of all the lotteries in the world, US Mega Millions makes the most headlines. As well as being one of the most popular lotteries in the world, it also has some of the biggest jackpots ever recorded in history and has changed the lives of people across the globe.
Here’s one of the most recent winners’ stories…
In March 2019 an anonymous winner came forward to claim their prize. Ok, this alone isn’t anything remarkable, but here’s where the story starts to get interesting!
This anonymous winner came forward to claim their prize nearly 5 months after the draw! That’s right, their winning numbers were selected in October 2018 and they waited 5 months to claim their prize of a whopping AUD$2.1 billion dollars. This was only 1 month before the lottery deadline!
What would make someone wait this long to collect their win? We don’t know, but we do know that many past international lottery winners recommend waiting some time before collecting your win, allowing the excitement to settle down and giving you the chance to proceed with a clearer mind.
This anonymous winner took home the biggest Mega Millions prize in history and the 2nd biggest US lottery prize ever, an amount of money incomprehensible to most people.
The lottery winner decided to take the cash option, meaning he/she walked away with a mind-blowing AUD$1.2 billion. This was the biggest lottery jackpot claimed by a single winner in US history!
What could you do with AUD$1.2 billion? You could buy nearly 50 private jets, approximately 5 super yachts, a round-the-world ticket for you and 240,000 of your friends, approximately 30 private islands and a whole lot more!
The ticket was purchased at a convenience store in Greenville South Carolina, a city with a population of less than 70,000. If the winning ticket was a quick pic it could very well have been sold to another lucky player, with the winner letting someone push in front of them in line to buy a ticket in the exact same lottery draw!
You don’t have to wait in line or be in the USA to play Mega Millions lottery though. You can win from draws of international lottery without leaving Australia, all you need is internet access.
