Lucky Friday the 13th has struck again! This time it was Kelsey Zachow’s turn to enjoy a mega lucky Friday the 13th when she purchased the winning $66 million Mega Millions ticket.
For the next 11 days, Kelsey went about her business completely unaware that she had scooped the Mega Millions jackpot.
Twice a week, Kelsey purchased her lottery ticket at the local gas station close to her home. When she eventually did double check her ticket, the clerk kept shouting, “You won big!”
At a news conference on Thursday at the Michigan Lottery regional office claim centre, Kelsey said, “I jumped in my car and locked the door. I couldn’t breathe. I pulled in the driveway at home and got out screaming. My boyfriend thought I was in a car accident.”
MegaMillions lottery winner
Like all lottery enthusiasts, Kelsey, began playing the Mega Millions lottery to win millions. Her dream finally did pay off when she hit the jackpot and walked away a millionaire. For a couple of Dollars, playing the Mega Millions on Tuesdays and Fridays, enabled this young woman to make all her dreams a reality. Kelsey knew that in order to win the jackpot, you simply had to have an entry.
Kelsey worked as a part time nurse in a hospital and also as a waitress. She plans to spend her Mega Millions win on the house of her dreams, tuck away college money for their young children, help relatives, take a well deserved vacation and of course go on a shopping spree.
Kelsey said by next Monday she will go shopping for a SUV and an electric-blue Mustang GT convertible.
The Mega Millions winning numbers from the 13th of June were: 7-38-46-49-56 and Mega number 1.
Kelsey is taking the money in a lump sum, which is nearly $27 million after taxes.
Her winning arrival at home
Billy Bartlett, Kelsey’s boyfriend of nearly three years, said that Kelsey came barrelling home at 100m.p.h. screaming “We won!” Once he had double checked the ticket himself he was quoted as saying, “my jaw dropped to the floor.”
For five years Kelsey bought her lottery entry for the Tuesday and the Friday Mega Millions draw. The biggest win prior to her latest jackpot win was $50 but this only inspired her to carry on and take a chance to win the big one.
For Kelsey, her dream came true. Now it’s up to you to decide, do you play this week’s $100,000,000 Mega Millions jackpot or not.
Come on, take that chance, after all you know the saying – You have to be in it to win it!
