 $1M Mega Millions Ticket Found In Junk Mail

We all know that sometimes you need a huge slice of luck in order to win big with the lottery. This was most definitely the case with passionate lotto player Linda Tuttle from Kentwood in Michigan. Linda won, but she also nearly lost her massive winnings in the May 26th Mega Millions Lottery draw. Read further for the full details. 

Close Call

Linda Tuttle is from Kentwood, Michigan, and she had a very nerve-wrecking experience with her MegaMillions win. Linda bought her lucky MegaMillions ticket from the T&J Party Store in Kentwood but, like so many other players, only got around to checking her ticket later. At that moment, she obviously had no idea that her ticket had matched the five main numbers that would make her an instant millionaire for the draw on the 26th of May. 

Many months after the draw took place, Linda went back to the party store where she bought her ticket and was told that there was a winning ticket bought from that very store to the value of $1 million with the MegaMillions. The prize remained unclaimed. Linda stopped to think and suddenly realised that there was a chance she could be the winner. As soon as she got home, she started searching for the ticket. 

Old Mail

Because Linda bought her ticket a while back, finding her ticket wasn’t easy, but she eventually found it in a pile of some old mail. Linda couldn’t believe her luck, but she had no idea that her luck was about to change even more after she discovered that she had won $1 million with MegaMillions. This reminds us of Anthony Perosi from New York who took six weeks to check his $136 million Powerball winning ticket. 

Linda’s winning MegaMillions numbers were:

01-39-52-69-72

She just missed out on the Mega Ball number of 12, otherwise she would have won the massive $214 million jackpot! The shocked winner eventually got around to calling her daughter to tell her the news. 

Linda lost her ticket once, and she was going to make sure it wouldn’t happen again. She decided to hide it in a chocolate candy. Keeping the ticket safe, Linda got around to claiming her winnings on the 22nd of September. 

Based on lottery results, Michigan has proved to be quite a lucky place to play the MegaMillions lottery. Just before Linda, lottery winner Sarah Hupp managed to win the same amount of $1 million on the 7th of August. 

Linda plans on using some of her money to go to China to pay some exchange students a return visit. Other things on her shopping list also include repairing some of the things in her house and buying a new car. We wish her all the best with her future and join us in congratulating her!
