54-year-old David Kalanik from Oakland County, Michigan, could not believe his luck when he discovered that his MegaMillions ticket for the draw on April 3rd, had turned him into a millionaire overnight. Kalanik managed to match all of the five principal numbers in the draw, but, like so many other winners during the first week of April 2015, he and his wife took it for another April Fools joke. Read further to find out juicier details about his terrific win, and for the latest MegaMillions results online.
David’s winning numbers on the draw day of April 3rd 2015 were: 10-36-47-63-74. The only number he had missed was the Mega Ball 2. Had he matched that number, he would have won the $25 million Jackpot prize available in that specific draw.
This passionate and lucky lottery player bought his destined ticket from the City Liquor store located in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Like most lottery players, David only checked his ticket the day after the MegaMillions draw had happened. After he saw that his ticket had matched all five main numbers, David admits that he”just sat there in disbelief.” He was so shocked after his realisation. He decided to call his wife because he simply could not believe it. He was still convinced that either he was dreaming, or he was being tricked for April Fools.
After he had told the press about him breaking the news to his wife, he said that they were both “more than elated. The winning numbers were on the top line of the ticket and we didn’t even bother to check the rest of the numbers,” explained the happy winner.
David Kalanik already has several plans on how to use his MegaMillions winnings. He told press that it took him a week to collect his lottery prize winnings because he was still choosing to meet with specific financial advisers first.
A wise decision was made after a lot of thought. David and his wife have decided to place the majority of their MegaMillions winnings into investments to prepare for their safe and comfortable retirement. Although his MegaMillions ticket has made him a millionaire, he doesn’t foresee the win making an immediate lifestyle change for him and his wife any time soon.
“Winning the MegaMillions prize has been a great experience, but we both plan to continue living the way we always have. Winning won’t change our lives, but it will help us be more comfortable,” said David.
This wise, humble, and grateful lottery player plays the game as regularly as he can, and admits that “having a shot at winning a multi-million dollar prize is the main reason I like to play.”
