The 13th proved extremely lucky for a mum from Cheboygan County in Michigan, USA, who became an instant millionaire after winning on the magnificent Mega Millions lottery.
The lucky Mega Millions winner is, Brenda Jewell, 49-year-old, who thanks to playing the Mega Millions lotto game won the $1 million prize on the usa lotto draw that took place on Tuesday February 13. She matched all five main Mega Millions winning lottery numbers.
The lucky Mega Millions winner took no time at all to realise that she had won the massive prize and go in to the Michigan Lottery headquarters in Lansing to claim her prize.
Speaking to the Mega Millions lottery officials, she admitted that she felt ‘a bit ill’ when she found out she was a big-time winner.
“I checked my numbers and just felt shaky and sick,” Ms Jewell told Michigan Lottery officials when she claimed her Mega Millions prize.
She went on to say that she’d been a loyal usa lottery player for many years, but never thought this day would come: “I’ve played for years and dreamed of winning, but you never think it’s going to happen to you.”
It’s not the first time that we’ve heard lottery winners say this, but we have to admit that 2018 definitely seems to be the year for those who have played the lottery for many years to all of a sudden win some seriously high lotto prizes, like the Powerball winner from North Carolina who after regularly playing the Powerball lottery for just over 32 years finally winning $150,000 using the very same lucky lotto numbers.
At the time of her realising that she had in fact won a substantial amount, she said that she called her husband and daughter as soon as she found out that she’d matched numbers 5, 12, 15, 46 and 49 in the Mega Millions draw.
Like so many people getting this phone call, her husband also never believed her at first.
“He told me to call the Lottery office before he left work to make sure I had really won.”
Once she had confirmed it, however, her husband did believe her and attended Michigan Lottery headquarters with his wife to claim the $1 million prize. The pair said that so far, their plans for the winnings are to take a vacation and build a new house, but the rest of it will be saved.
“It still hasn’t really hit me yet that I won,” said the millionaire mum.
“I can’t wait to be debt free and be able to actually breathe and not worry about my finances.”
The store that sold the Mega Millions winning lottery ticket, was Dave’s Place on North Straits Highway in Cheboygan.
