Once again, the Mega Millions lottery is back with exciting news about a lucky player winning remarkable prize money. The officials are very excited about the player managing to win a million-dollar prize playing Mega Millions.
Mega Millions is arguably the largest lottery game in the entire lottery industry throughout the world. Ever since the game has been launched, it has become the top rival for the US Powerball lottery. The US Powerball is the only lottery game that has been able to match the might of Mega Millions over the years.
Both games offer similar kinds of prizes, but for now, Mega Millions has the lead for paying out most of the jackpot prizes.
This time, although the announcement is not for a jackpot prize, yet it is for a million-dollar win, which holds its own value and reputation.
The officials have confirmed that the lucky winner taking home the prize money is Jonathan Francois. Francois is a 47-year-old man from Jacksonville. The player had stars smiling at him when he decided to purchase a ticket for Mega Millions instead of the US Powerball lottery.
The player had purchased his lucky ticket from the Winn-Dixie Store. If you wish to visit the store and purchase a ticket, then you can find the store at 6060-10 Fort Caroline Road, Jacksonville.
The store staff members and the manager were all really glad about Jonathan’s win. They stated that every time Jonathan visited their store, he went for the US Powerball tickets. He never once tried playing the Mega Millions game.
However, when he came in the last time, he seemed upset and stated that he wanted to go for a different game this time. Therefore, the staff members asked him to go for the Mega Millions game, and that’s what he ended up doing.
To Jonathan’s utmost surprise, his first-ever ticket for the Mega Millions game landed him a million-dollar prize. The player stated that he had not imagined in a million years of winning a prize on his very first attempt at the Mega Millions game.
Jonathan revealed that he didn’t even want to go for a manual pick when choosing the numbers. Instead, he chose the Quick Pick option, letting the computer do all the work. Surprisingly, the decision he made at the last moment turned out to be the best in his favor.
Now the player has a million-dollar in his account and he has a unique story to share with his family and friends. The store staff members were also very excited about Jonathan’s win. They revealed that they were all going to get a bonus from the $10,000 bonus commission they have received for selling the lucky ticket.
