MegaMillions winner still to come forwardThursday June 3rd 2010
There was a $12 million MegaMillions winner on Friday who is a single ticket winner from North Carolina. Lottery officials have announced that the winning ticket was purchased in Quick Shop Citgo, 3930 West Market Street, Greensboro but the Megamillions winner is still to come forward to claim their jackpot prize. Although it is early days and the lottery winner has 180 days in which to make their claim, it is usual for a jackpot win to be claimed almost immediately as this is what most lottery players would do if they were to win.
This $12 million Mega Millions winner is expected to walk away with around $7.7 million after taxes if they opt to receive their prize as a lump sun. The store which sold the winning Mega Millions ticket is set to receive a $50,000 incentive bonus.
If you buy lotto tickets for the Mega Millions and have some unchecked tickets for the draw on Saturday which you purchased from the retailer in question then now might be a good time to check them. Someone is sitting on a $12 million fortune and may not even be aware that they have won a life changing sum of money. The winning numbers for the Mega Millions draw in question were 3, 11, 20, 29, 39 and the Mega Ball was 26.
This was the second jackpot win in a row for the Mega Millions and we are awaiting for the results of the draw on Tuesday to find out if there was a third consecutive jackpot winner or if the Mega Millions will offer a rollover jackpot for the next draw.
