An engineer in the Bronx by the name of Donnie Alonzo has recently won the incredible sum of $1 million on the Mega Millions lotto. The twenty-six-year-old got lucky in the August 5th draw.
When asked about his playing habits, Donnie said that he usually only plays Mega Millions if the jackpot reaches $100 million. He feeling lucky one day and so decided to buy two sets of Quick Pick numbers for the $30 million jackpot while he was shopping the day before the draw took place.
Donnie’s lucky winning numbers for the Mega Millions draw were 5-18-28-54-74 and the Mega Ball 6. “I checked my numbers on the Lottery’s website on the Monday after the drawing and was totally shocked and surprised that I had matched the first five numbers. I didn’t know exactly how much I won, but I knew it was big,” explained Donnie.
As soon as the life-changing news has sunk in, he immediately got on the phone with his parents to tell them the news. “I called my parents and sister to tell them my good fortune. I then hid the ticket in my cabinet until I could come in and claim my prize,” said Donnie.
When the time came for Donnie to collect his prize, he had to go to the New York Lottery’s Manhattan Customer Service Centre on the 12th of August. “I’m still in shock. I plan to be smart and pay off my student loans and other debts first. I also want to pay off my loans and buy a new house for my family.
Congratulations to Donnie! This just goes to prove that a win can happen to anyone, anytime. All you have to do is get your online lotto ticket and hold thumbs for your bright millionaire future!
