In Oregon, USA, the mystery over who scooped the $6.4 million jackpot is finally over. Everyone who was trying to guess who it could be would never have guessed correctly. The winner was a big surprise and unexpected outcome after it was revealed that a man from Iraq was the big winner. Read the full exclusive story here.
As it goes with winners, many like to take their time claiming their prize. Either they are getting advice first, or they want their prize to accumulate interest before they take it up. This has been true for many players, an example being that of a $149 million MegaMillions winner who took 100 days to claim their prize.
The winner won the Megabucks lottery in Oregon. The winner finally stepped through the doors of the lottery headquarters in Salem on the 1st of December this month. The Oregon Lottery Executive, Jack Roberts, then revealed to the press that the winner was originally from Iraq who bought his ticket with the online lotto via the internet and prefers to stay anonymous for safety reasons.
This also is not an uncommon desire for lottery winners. Even Simon Cowell said that he would remain anonymous if he won the lottery. Even EuroMillions winners in September remained anonymous after bagging a £35 million win.
The lottery director said, “I don’t believe this has ever happened before.” The happy winner said that he purchased his winning Megabucks ticket from a site based in Israel that allowed customers to buy tickets for lotteries all over the world. The Oregon Department of Justice said that the winner acquired the ticket through legal means, and is therefore entitled to every penny of the winnings.
The winner prefers to stay anonymous because he feels his life will e put at risk due to the current unstable environment of the world and all the wars going on. The director believes that the man has a reasonable case, but a final decision has not yet been made. He mentioned, “The personal safety risk that he and his family might face seems stronger than the public interest of knowing who the winner is. I don’t want to read that somebody has been kidnapped or killed because we have announced them as the Megabucks winner.”
The winner has chosen to take his winning over a period of 25 years, a rare choice that not many winners choose to take. The first payment has already been released after taxes have been deducted from it.
How incredible is that? It just goes to show that a win really can happen to anyone and can come from anywhere. When you play the lottery online, you have as much chance as anyone to become a millionaire. The trick is to actual enter and
Become the millionaire you deserve to be, and play the online lotto now!
