University Employees Win $1M Mega Millions Prize

Mega Millions Lottery Win

A group of West Virginia University employees has recently won big with the Mega Millions lottery. The winners are a team of 26 lottery players who call themselves the “Mountaineer 26”. This is their incredible story…

The winners won a $1 million prize playing the popular American lottery, the Mega Millions lotto. West Virginia Acting Director, John Myers, attended to the winning team at the press conference and presented them with their huge cheque. 

“Today I have the privilege of introducing a great group of people who have been playing in an office pool for more than 20 years,” said John. He added, “This group has had members come and go through the years and now includes 26 individuals that all have ties to WVU, where their pool began. The group, which we are calling ‘the Mountaineer 26’ is spearheaded by Sheila Anderson and she bought their lucky ticket at Bell’s 119 in Morgantown.”

Sheila Anderson recently retired from WVU Health Sciences. Sheila was key in keeping their Mega Millions syndicate strong and entered in every draw. She managed the group’s money and bought the tickets. She was the one who found out the big win and shared the amazing news with all of them. 

“We lay every week and I buy the tickets in advance using pay slips. We have some people who give me particular numbers and some of them we use the Easy Pick. On this particular ticket that won the million, one of our group members had been using numbers she got from a fortune cookie a while back,” said Sheila. “We missed the Mega Ball number by one. I could not believe it when I saw the five numbers match and I had to look at it several times and call the store to confirm the numbers over the phone. I then started calling everyone at 6:30 in the morning to tell them, but nobody would believe me!” she added. 

The other team members were very grateful for Sheila’s efforts in keeping them together and always in the game. They say they owe their win to her. Before taxes, each team member will receive $26,300. The Mega Millions lottery syndicate say they want to keep playing. 

“We play weekly, but sensibly. It’s just $1 per person,” said Patrina Hower. She wants to take her family on a railroad trip somewhere through their beautiful state.

Good luck.
