On the 16th of February, a retired Macy’s executive by the name of Maxine Miller became a millionaire with Mega Millions lotto when she replaced her first missing ticket with a quick pick one. Maxine matched the first five numbers in the 16th of February draw.

I brought it to an appointment and as I sat looking closer at it in the waiting room, I realized there were actually a whole other set of zeros that she didn’t account for. I called my husband and he confirmed that my ticket was worth much, much more,” explained Maxine.
