Merle and Patricia Butler
The lottery commission had to wait for two agonising weeks before these two winners came forward to claim $656 million. Two winning tickets shared the jackpot. One ticket belonged to Merle and Patricia, and the other winners were a syndicate of three school teachers calling themselves “The Three Amigos”. They chose to keep their names private. Each winner, therefore, received $218.6 million.
Merle and Patricia took the lump sum option, too. When reporters asked them how they were going to spend the money, they said that they will first consult with a financial advisor. It’s good to hear that they have good heads on their shoulders. With that kind of money, it’s easy to fall into traps and bad experiences without help and guidance. Patricia added that she wanted to also do a lot of good with some of the money.
This winner used to be a truck driver and die-hard fisherman in his spare time. He was one of the two winners who took home the $390 million jackpot. He used half of his jackpot prize to buy himself a new boat, pay off his family’s mortgages and quit his job.
Eddie decided to play Mega Millions when he heard about the jackpot rolling over. He went out and got quick pick tickets on a spur-of-the-moment. One of the ten tickets he bought was the winning one. He took home $116 million after the jackpot was halved.
Jim and Carolyn McCullar
Jim had one of the winning tickets in the massive $380 million Mega Millions jackpot. The minute he was handed his check, he said, “We’ve been married for 41 years, I know exactly what to do with this check.” He then proceeded to hand it over to his wife. He said he wanted to write some checks to his family and six children. “I’m not going to fly all over the world in my own private jet. What this means to me is the legacy it is going to leave behind for my generations to come,” said Jim.
Joe and Sue Kainz
These two won their share of the $363 million Mega Millions jackpot on the 9th of May in the year 2000. Joe bought 10 tickets for the draw and double-checked every single entry of his. By the time he reached his last ticket, his hopes had dwindled. The last ticket proved lucky, though and his heart instantly began pounding against his chest. He had found that he matched all the jackpot numbers. The couple
