Mega Millions Jackpot Set to Reach $50 Million
There are quite a few huge lottery jackpots up for grabs in the states at the moment and there have also been some huge wins, here is a quick roundup of the latest Mega Millions news.
This week’s Mega Millions jackpot was worth a massive $41million annuity or $29 million cash and it is not yet known if anyone has won it. If no one has won the jackpot then it is likely that it will increase to at least $50 million for the March 15th draw.
In California lucky player Ami Chand has claimed a $630,786 Mega Millions winning ticket. It took Chand a while to realise he won as he says he buys the same amount of tickets each week but places them in a draw and forgets about them.
When he did finally check his ticket he realised he had matched five out of six white Mega Millions numbers to win the jackpot.
Chand said that the prize has come at the perfect time as he was laid off two years ago and has only managed to find part-time work since them. He says that he intends to use the money to pay his bills and put his two children through college.
