Most people have a dream car they always wanted to own, but were never able to afford because other things got in the way. Joanne R. felt the same for a long time, but everything changed when she scooped a major Mega Millions prize. After winning $4.000.000, this fortunate woman from New Jersey wants to buy a Mercedes – a car she always fantasized about.
The lucky Bayonne resident correctly guessed the main numbers 16, 22, 40, 41 and 59, but missed the Mega Ball 8 in the Mega Millions draw on December 1st. Match 5 prizes usually amount to $1.000.000, but since she decided to try out the Megaplier option Joanne ended up collecting $4.000.000. She described herself as an avid lottery player, who buys tickets whenever the jackpot gets big.
It wasn’t specified why it took her so long to officially come forward, but the moment of discovering she became $4.000.000 richer was very exciting. Joanne said that “her heart started pounding as she welled up with excitement” and immediately decided to wake up her sons and share the lucky news. They weren’t too eager to get up since it was still early in the morning, but changed their minds after learning their mum just became lottery millionaire. Joanne will use the money to pay off her debts and finally buy the Mercedes she always dreamt about.
Mega Millions players didn’t have as much luck as Joanne in this game’s latest draw on February 20th. The winning numbers 17, 19, 23, 24 and 43 with the Mega Ball 14 failed to produce a jackpot winner on Tuesday night.
