With the US Powerball once again causing such a stir, we can forgive you if you totally forgot about the 393M Mega Millions jackpot that was also recently won. The winner? A woman from southwest suburban Palos Heights and her husband, who have come forward just two weeks after the winning Mega Millions numbers were drawn.
Unlike the $758.7M Powerball Jackpot Winner, Mavis L. Wanczyk, Patricia Busking, needed a few weeks to process winning the 393 million on Mega Millions before coming forward to claim the colossal usa lotto prize.
Patricia and her husband said that they don’t play the Mega Millions lottery often, only when the jackpots gets really big, like most people really. In fact, it’s these ticket sales, from players that don’t normally buy lottery tickets that increase the prize fund and cause the jackpots to jump to crazy jackpot amounts.
The couple said that they picked up a few steak sandwiches for dinner at Nick’s BBQ, and decided to buy a Mega Millions lottery ticket at the same time due to the really big jackpot.
Patricia and her husband stopped by Nick's to pick up a few steak sandwiches for dinner on their way home. While there, she noticed the Mega Millions jackpot was high and decided to add on a lottery ticket. Nick’s BBQ will received $500,000 for selling the winning Mega Millions lottery ticket.
Jeff Keenen, who works at Nick’s BBQ, said ever since the news that the winning Mega Millions lottery ticket was purchased at the shop emerged, "Lines out the door for lottery. Like, 'Hey guys, we cook too!'"
The lucky couple said, "It was a surreal, out of body experience when I saw all those numbers that matched.”
The latest Mega Millions lottery winners said that they plan to share the mega prize money with family in friends, as well as donating to charities near and dear to their hearts.
The couple took the lump sum payment of $246 million.
Patricia, a retired health worker, said the numbers she played on the winning Mega Millions lottery ticket were not her own, but a Quickpick ticket. Her winning numbers in the August 11 Mega Millions draw were 23-33-53-56-58 and the Mega Ball 06.
Mega Millions in Illinois
It’s a win that might not have happened after recent problems with the Mega Millions lottery in the state of Illinois.
Powerball and Mega Millions lottery players in Illinois nearly saw their chances of winning millions go from slim to none recently, when the General Assemblies failed to pass a balanced budget by July 1, causing The Multi-State Lottery Association dropped Illinois from both the Powerball and Mega Millions games.
With the budget in place, the sale of Powerball and Mega Millions lottery tickets resumed.
It's a good thing it did for Patricia, that's for sure!
