People who won the lottery on Friday the 13th
Remember Kelsey? Kelsey won $66 million Mega Millions jackpot on Friday the 13th. We can just imagine her heart-pounding adrenaline rush she experienced the minute she realised that she had won the Mega Millions jackpot.
When interviewed about her substantial lottery jackpot win, Kelsey said, “I started playing the lottery because of the chance to win millions. I always dreamed about winning and what I would do with the money, and now that dream is a reality."
It certainly goes to show that it makes no difference when you play the lotto, whether it’s your favourite day of the week or Friday the 13th. Lady Luck can smile down on you at any given time.
Kelsey’s day started off when she walked into Sonny’s Mart and purchased five Mega Millions tickets. It was the last entry with the numbers, 07 – 38 – 46 – 49 - 56 and the Gold Mega Ball 01 that won her the Mega Millions jackpot.
As many Mega Millions jackpot winners, Kelsey opted to receive the lump sum cash payout amounting to $38 million Dollars.
Ten days after Kelsey had bought the Mega Millions tickets, she decided to double check the her several lottery tickets she had accumulated over the past couple of weeks at her local retailer.
"When the clerk at the store told me I had a big winner I was positive that he was mistaken," said Kelsey. "There was a long line in the store behind me, so I decided to leave and looked the numbers up online when I got into my car. That's when I realized I had won the jackpot and could barely breathe."
Kelsey immediately drove straight home and ran into the house screaming for her boyfriend.
"I was screaming 'I won! I won!' at the top of my lungs and he came running into the room," said Kelsey. "I was yelling so much that he thought I had been in a car accident or hit someone on my way home. I told him I had a $66 million ticket in my hand and he didn't believe me. He finally looked at the ticket and couldn't believe his eyes."
Kelsey shared the exciting Mega Millions jackpot win with a few close friends and family then promptly locked the ticket in the safe. Over the next few weeks she spoke to financial planners and a lawyer in preparation of collecting her substantial win.
At the time of her win, Kelsey had plans to buy a new home, go on a well-deserved vacation to Europe and help a few family members. She also wanted to start a college fund for her family.
Another dream Kelsey had was to own a Ford Mustang convertible. "I have always wanted an electric blue Ford Mustang, and one day I will get one, but helping my family live comfortably comes first for me," said Kelsey.
