Mega Millions Winner
Last Friday nights drawing of the Mega Millions numbers had most of us holding our breath, hoping, and praying that the lottery gods would be good to us and give us a piece of the $1.35 billion jackpot. Unfortunately, most of us weren't lucky enough to win any sort of life-changing money...whomp, whomp...that is unless you traveled to Maine in the last few days and purchased your tickets.
$1.35 Billion Winner in Maine
According to the New York Lottery, one winning ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night. The winning numbers were, 30-43-45-46-61, and the mega ball number 14 and one ticket sold in Maine matched all numbers making one person an instant "almost billionaire". Yes, the jackpot was $1.35 billion, but the lump sum cash payout is around $700 million. I don't think the winner is complaining...LOL!
