When the latest Mega Millions winners heard what they had won, they “got goosebumps!”
Karen Cross set up a Mega Millions syndicate back in 2012, calling it a “Lottery Club” at her place of work at Al Filippone Associates at William Raveis Real Estate in Fairfield, USA.
Playing the lottery for six years, the group finally got their first big win in the August 24th Mega Millions draw. The day started off as usual until Karen received a text message the day after the August 24th Mega Millions draw. The message stated that there had been a second-tier winning ticket sold in Fairfield.
It was later during the day that she discovered that the winning Mega Millions ticket had been sold at the Wheels Convenience Store. It was the same store where she had purchased their ticket.
Karen immediately double checked the syndicate’s ticket and was shocked to discover they had matched the five main balls in the draw!
The winning Mega Millions numbers were 01-06-13-48-49 and the Mega Ball 08.
They were just one number short of winning the $118m Mega Millions jackpot.
Not sure of the second tier prize amount or any of the lower tiered prize amounts for that matter, Karen thought there prize couldn’t have been anything substantial, although still extremely exciting.
“I thought it was $5,000 at first, but we were optimistic,” she said.
Eager to find out how much they’d won, she took the ticket back to the Wheels Convenience Store along with some other syndicate members to have the ticket scanned and verified.
When the scanner told them the real value of the Mega Millions ticket, they all went quiet and “got goosebumps.”
The ladies excused themselves from the store, ticket in hand and it was only when they all got back to the car that they all started screaming.
With the Lottery Club having 31 group members, each member will receive $64,516.63 before taxes.
When she was finally given the over-sized celebratory Mega Millions winners cheque, Karen said, “I always wanted one of these.”
