The Mega Millions lottery has always generated many massive jackpots over the years and has made countless millionaires. Today we’ll be taking a trip back in time to the year 2015 when a resident of Sullivan County, New York, won $126 million with Mega Millions. Read further to learn their amazing story about how they’re life changed completely. 

The representative of the New York lottery, Yolanda Vega, had to go back to Sullivan County for the second time in two months because she needed to present a multimillion prize to Mega Millions winner, Tammy Pratt. 

Tammy was age 47 at the time of her win in 2015. She was the sole winner of the $126 million Mega Millions jackpot in the February 27th draw. Tammy worked as a real estate broker. She is the second lottery winner in Sullivan County to have won big after Harold Diamond won $326 million with Mega Millions in January that year. 

Tammy told the New York Lottery officials that she only bought tickets when the jackpots hit over $100 million. She said, “I was between appointments and stopped to buy gas at the Mobil station in South Fallsburg. I saw that the Mega Millions jackpot for that evening’s draw was $126 million, so I decided to buy myself a ticket.” 

Tammy bought one ticket and used the quick pick method to choose her numbers. “I normally buy only one ticket when the jackpot is high, but this time, I bought $4 worth. I just had a feeling I should get more than one,” said Tammy. 

The day after the draw happened, she got up out of bed and the first thought that crossed her mind was who the winner of the jackpot was. “It was a little unusual for me to think about the drawing from the night before, so I checked my Mega Millions ticket online. I saw that someone had won from the very same store I bought my ticket from. I couldn’t believe it! My heart was racing. I checked the numbers against mine, and saw that they all matched up! I was in total and utter shock,” explained Tammy. 

As you could imagine with a jackpot of that size, the reality couldn’t sink in, and she had to ask her husband, John, to check her ticket. “I asked John to double check my numbers because I had to be absolutely sure. He confirmed that all the numbers matched, and after that we were both so overwhelmed with the reality of the situation,” said Tammy. 

Their winning Mega Millions numbers from their draw were: 

7-49-53-60-64 and the Mega Ball 4. 

The Food Mart that had sold this winning Mega Millions ticket got a bonus of $10,000. 

Tammy and her husband took the lump sum option of $81.6 million. Tammy wants to stay humble and save some money for her children’s college tuition. After that, she said that she wants to go on holiday with her husband and just take it easy for some time before they decide what to do with the rest of the money.
