 Unexpected $25M Mega Millions Jackpot Win

It must have happened to many lottery winners that they check their lotto tickets and initially think it is worth less than it actually is. Sound familiar? Well then this story is going to entertain you. Read further to discover how Raul Ahumada from Missouri, USA, initially thought his winning Mega Millions ticket was worth $25,000, when it was actually worth a whopping $25 million. 

Exceeding Expectations

Raul Ahumada comes from Noel in Missouri, and he is a dedicated and passionate lottery player, with the American lottery, Mega Millions, being one of his favourites. On the 31st of July, just last month, he initially thought he had won the sum of $25,000 with his winning Mega Millions ticket. In actual fact, Raul had just come into a great deal more...$25 million, precisely. 

Mega Millions Winning Cheque

Raul is 60-years-old and hadn’t checked the results of his winning numbers for Mega Millions until the 3rd of August, 2015. Raul still believed that he’d won just $25,000 upon going to claim his prize. You can imagine the look on his face after realizing that the real value of his ticket was worth much, much more...His ticket was the 427th ticket to be sold in Missouri which managed to win over $1 million since the lottery game began in 1986. 

Something like this happens many times with players, however. It’s not as uncommon as you think to make such a mistake. Other stories like these include Chi Vinh La from Canada who thought he’d won $100,000 but actually won $1 million in May of this year. Among others who were mistaken were Charles and Deborah Bibbs from Virginia who thought they had won the sum of $250,000 but later found out it was actually $1 million with the Mega Millions online

Raul Ahumada is a passionate American lottery player who works at a chicken processing factory. Raul bought his winning Mega Millions ticket from the Rio Alce convenience store. He decided to let the computer choose his numbers for him. That was the best decision he could have made because he is now sitting with $25 million in the bank! 

His MegaMillions winning numbers were as follows: 

28-32-33-40-46 with the Mega Ball of 10

The draw date of Raul’s massive Mega Millions win, the 31st of July, actually proved to be a very lucky one for many lottery players in Missouri. Earlier this week, Frank Schwent and Robert Adams won a fabulous $20,000 in that draw. 

Raul briefly spoke about his win but chose not to be photographed. He says that him and his wife, Rosa, are planning to “try find a nice mountain home and stay there.” This Mega Millions lottery winner clearly wants the simple life and to slow things down for himself. He also plans on retiring in the near future and splurging some cash on a “nice car”. On his bucket list of lottery spendings, he also wants to squeeze in a trip back home to Mexico where he hasn’t been back to in fifteen years to see his family and pay his respects to his mother’s grave. 

Mountain House

Luck comes in many forms, and for Raul, luck came in the form of a Mega-surprise. If you also want your share of a Mega-money surprise, then you’ve come to the right place. With the cheapest lotto tickets around, it would be a shame not to put in a little euro here or there to stand a chance of taking home millions!

If you want to win it, you’ve got to be in it. Play your lucky numbers now!
