Lottery players take the process of making their lucky number selections very seriously, with it being the only thing keeping them from snatching up the jaw-dropping prizes which are up for grabs in all of the international lottery games offered to you right here. With so much that could be yours in the USA lotto each week, things are no different.
A lucky Mega Millions player from Steubenville, Carolyn Keras, decided to take a chance and play last Friday, buying a lottery ticket from Ruff Creek Markets store. Not usually playing this lottery game, it’s a good thing she did – thanks to her luck she now falls into the millionaire’s club where we’re sure she’ll be having the best time!
With it only being the second time playing the Mega Millions lottery, she was able to match all of the numbers drawn except the Mega Ball which saw her placing in the second division rather than claiming the jackpot prize. Being her first big win, Keras plans to pay off her bills and buy a car that she can rely on. That’s sounds like a great idea to us! After realizing she was in possession of winning lottery numbers, she headed over to the store to double-check. The manager of the store, Paula Knox, shared how she felt about Keras’ win, saying:
“She is regular customer here and probably buys a lottery ticket three of four times a week. But she doesn’t spend a lot of money on lottery tickets. She may buy a single ticket and for some reason decided to play the Mega Millions on Friday night. I am very excited for her and for our store. I have never had a big winner like this since I have been here. And I am glad it was a local person who won. Because of your location, we get people from the Tri-State Area who buy their lottery tickets here. She lives here locally and I hope she can use the money”.
Had she been able to match the Mega Ball too, Keras would have walked away with the whopping $126 million jackpot prize. Marie Kilbain, the lottery commission spokesperson, said that she had made use of auto pick to choose her number selection. She carried on, stating:
“There were two tickets sold Friday night with five of the winning Mega Millions numbers. But neither ticket had the Mega Ball number, so the tickets sold in Texas and Ohio are worth $1 million. We recommend anyone who has won a prize of that size to figure out what they want to do with their winnings and perhaps consult a financial advisor”.
Winning big has never been easier now that the online lottery affords players with the chance to play any game of their choice from wherever they may be. With the Mega Millions lottery having a jackpot prize of $159 million available in tonight’s (Friday, May 15th) draw, there’s still for you to secure your spot! Make sure that all of your entries are placed in time and before you know it, you could be in the same position that this lucky winner is.
