Seattle has been holding its breath recently after it was announced that a winning MegaMillions ticket worth $157 million was sold there. Yes, that’s right. Somewhere in Seattle, Washington, there is a winner with a ticket worth multi-millions. But don’t panic! The winner has yet to come forward.
On the 8th of March, one lucky player beat the immense odds and matched all the winning jackpot numbers of the Mega Millions lottery. The ticket found its owner at the West Seattle 7-Eleven at 9200 35th Avenue run by shopkeeper Nirvhai Singh.
He has been spreading the news like wildfire after he discovered that his store had sold the winning ticket. He even took the measures of putting up a sign letting the public know. He thinks he is in for a big reward, once the winner verifies their ticket.
“Lucky, I’m feeling lucky. I don’t know how to explain, I’m very happy,” explained Nirvhai. The unfortunate thing about his misconception, is that he probably won’t be receiving a bonus for his store, because unlike other States in the USA, Washington doesn’t give bonuses to stores who sell winning tickets.
Nirvhai is holding onto the hope that maybe the winner will feel generous and give the store a little something. Even if the store doesn’t get a bonus, the fact that the ticket was sold there will be great for future business. People now see the store as being a lucky place! Customers will start buying there more because they also want to be big winners. “Maybe lightning will strike twice,” said one of the customers in the store.
The winning numbers in the Mega Millions lotto draw were:
27-37-54-66-69 and the Mega Ball 5.
The winner will need to go to the Washington lottery headquarters in Olympia. That is always the case with people who win over $100 million. The ticket holder of this prize will have the option of either taking the money as an annuity of 29 payments or a lump sum of $102 million.
The last big multi-million dollar win in the state of Washington was five years ago after someone took home $380 million also with Mega Millions. They had to split the jackpot with another winner who was situated in Idaho.
The Mega Millions jackpot has been steadily climbing since the last jackpot was won on the 8th of January. The next draw is set to take place on the 11th of March, Friday for $15 million.
