“Always listen to your wife,” the saying goes. On the 11th of March, a lucky Mega Millions player bought a quick pick ticket two years ago and kept playing the same numbers on those tickets ever since. He thought that he should probably move onto new numbers, but his wife advised him not to. Here’s what happened next…
Before Ricky Rhinebolt changed his numbers for a Mega Millions draw, his wife told him not to. The Mega Millions player from Ohio listened to his wife’s advice and played the same numbers in an upcoming Mega Millions draw. He won $5 million!
Ricky played with the “Megaplier” option and matched five main numbers. Because of this decision, he won $5 million with Mega Millions even though he missed out on the Mega Ball number. State and federal taxes amounted to 29%, therefore, he will be taking home a total of $3.55 million with Mega Millions.
The winning Mega Millions numbers in his draw were:
27-37-54-66-69 and 5.
On a Wednesday afternoon, Ricky returned to the same store he had bought his ticket from in order to check his results and see if he had won anything. “Everyone in the store was talking about it because they knew the store had sold a winner. I scanned my ticket and thought, that can’t be right so I scanned it again. It said $5 million
Ricky didn’t want to attract any curiosity or unwanted attention, so he waited until the line in the store had died down a little more so that he could quietly inform the store owner that the ticket he had in his hand was a big winner. “He came around the counter and gave me a hug,” said Ricky.
The store, Marathon, situated on 495 Woodville Road in Mansfield, will get a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. When lottery officials interviewed him briefly about his winnings, he revealed that he hadn’t yet decided exactly what to do with his winnings. What he did have on his mind, however, was paying the bills and possibly buying a new house.
