The east coast of the US has been battling some serious weather. The snow storm Jude completely covered the east coast with metres of thick snow which forced this pensioner to stay inside her house for a few days. When she eventually got the freedom to go outside into the real world again, it led to a Mega Millions win. Read her full story here!
The lucky pensioner’s name is Louise Ritenour. Like many other residents in her town, she opted to stay indoors for the duration of the blizzard outside. A few days later, though, it was the 26th of January, and she needed to get groceries. The weather had improved slightly, so she braced herself and left her house.
On her way back from the grocery store, the Virginian pensioner made a last-minute stop at Bo’s Belly Barn on Berryville Avenue in Winchester where she bought herself a ticket into the Mega Millions draw that was going to happen that evening. Louise beat the immense odds at the last minute and managed to change her life in the blink of an eye.
Her last minute decision to buy a MegaMillions lottery ticket after days of being trapped in her house led to a $1 million prize. In fact, her ticket was the only one of a total of two tickets for that draw that won second tier prizes across the country.
Louise Ritenour matched the following winning Mega Millions numbers:
Had she matched the Mega ball number of 2, she would have bagged $48 million. She is very satisfied with her $1 million, though. Louise chose the quick pick option to get her lucky numbers. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning Mega Millions ticket.
Louis has been retired for several years and she said she isn’t going to make any hasty decisions with her winnings. She hinted at treating herself to a new car. “It feels wonderful if it ever sinks in. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet,” she told lottery officials.
