Steven Peloquin of Mechanicsville, Virginia, claimed an astounding Mega Millions jackpot to the sum of $153 million in 2015. His draw happened on the 21st of July, 2015, the day that his life would change forever. His winning ticket matched all five winning numbers including the Mega Ball.
Steven’s winning Mega Millions numbers were:
20-30-62-65-74 and the Mega Ball 1.
This means he won the entire jackpot prize all for himself. The cash value ended up being $91.8 million after taxes. Steven’s jackpot win is the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot to have been sold by the Pennsylvania Lottery. It is also the fourth-largest prize awarded to a player in Mega Millions history.
An executive of the Pennsylvania Lottery by the name of drew Svitko presented Steven with his ceremonial check of $91,781,644.00. Before Steven’s win, he worked as a professional truck driver for 30 years. He had bought his winning Mega Millions ticket at Penn 80/Flying J Travel Plaza while driving through to Pennsylvania for work. The store received $100,000 for selling the ticket.
After Steven had bought his ticket, he hadn’t checked his results for several days. “I was getting ready to turn in last Saturday night when I went online to check my numbers,” explained Steven. “Needless to say, I didn’t get to sleep that night,” he added.
After realizing his life had just changed forever, he took a picture of the ticket and shared it with his close friends and family who also confirmed that he was indeed seeing the truth and matched all the winning numbers.
Steven told lottery officials that his legendary Mega Millions win gave him and his wife the opportunity to spend more time with their family. Steven took his ticket to the headquarters in Pennsylvania to validate the win. They confirmed his win right then and there and began preparing to release his immense winnings.
Just like that, with one ticket, your whole world can turn upside down in the blink of an eye. In a very good way, of course! Turn your world upside down in an epic way and get your Mega
Best of luck!
