Ricky’s thanking his lucky stars that he listened to his wife, after winning a whopping $5 million on the Mega Millions lotto game recently.
Woman are more often than not complaining that their husbands are not listening to them. Think about it, you get home from work, walk in the door, and your wife starts talking about her day. Frustrations with her boss at work, her lunch with a friend, and challenges with a child are the first things she shares.
That’s exactly the time you zone out…
But Ricky listened when his wife told him not to change his numbers.
Ricky had been playing the Mega Millions lottery for just over two years. The first ticket he ever purchased was a quickpick ticket. For the past two years he’s been playing the exact same numbers that reflected on the quickpick.
While telling his wife that he was seriously thinking about changing his luck by changing his Mega Millions numbers, she told him not to.
It’s a jolly good job she told him not to, as his good old lucky lotto numbers finally matched the five main numbers in the March 8 Mega Millions draw. His lucky Mega Millions lotto numbers were 27-37-54-66-69. Ricky just missed out on the Mega Ball 05. Had he also matched the bonus ball, he would have joined the other ticket holder who won the $157m Mega Millions jackpot in that draw.
Ricky bought his winning Mega Millions lottery ticket from the Marathon Gas station the day before the Mega Millions draw. After the draw, he returned to the gas station the following evening to see if he had won anything.
“Everyone in the store was talking about it because they knew the store had sold a winner. I scanned my ticket and thought, that can’t be right so I scanned it again. It said $5 million winner,” said the shocked winner.
Ricky waited for the store to quieten down before speaking to the owner and tell him that he had the winning ticket. “He came around the counter and gave me a hug,” the Mega Millions winner said.
After state and federal taxes Ricky will be left with $3.55m. Ricky said that he has plans to use his Mega Millions winnings to pay off bills and possibly buy a new home.
