Mega Millions lottery players more often than not, have some sort of game plan when they buy Mega Millions lottery tickets online or offline. Whether they use their loved ones birthday’s, special event dates, lucky numbers or hot and cold lottery numbers.
The latest Mega Millions winner won using his Mega Millions game plan, and not only did he win the jackpot worth a massive $104m, but he also won on the second tier, increasing his mega win to $105 million! He’s opted to take his winnings as a one-off payment of $66,455,696, which is $43,980,380 after taxes.
The lucky Mega Millions winner is Wayne Harris from Homer in New York, USA. When asked what he plans to do with his new found wealth, the winner said that ordinarily he would have bought himself a new car, but he just did that. Relocating is also out of the question, so he’s going to fulfil a life-long dream of his, and buy an airplane and take flying lessons.
Like most lottery winners, Wayne, an electrical engineer, didn’t immediately realise that he had won the lottery. It was the day after the Mega Millions draw on September 22, that Wayne checked the Mega Millions winning numbers on the internet.
"I checked the Internet and saw that I had similar numbers," he said. "I checked my tickets and I won."
Wayne had to wait to claim his Mega Millions lottery win, but while he did, he made sure that he told his father the good news. “He was pretty excited.”
No kidding Wayne!
The winning numbers in the September 22 Mega Millions draw were 05-39-54-63-66 and the Mega Ball 15.
Winning Mega Millions Strategy
While questioned about his lucky win, Wayne did say that he developed a Mega Millions winning strategy, while playing the usa lotto game over the years.
"I choose them based on history of the lottery, if the numbers come up recently, then I play those numbers," he said.
Two of the main numbers in the September 22 draw had also come up earlier in the month.
