The Mega Millions officials are here to announce the winning story of Sheila McNeal. The player is among the luckiest residents of Pasco County to have won huge prize money playing the Mega Millions game.
The team has confirmed that Sheila McNeal has reportedly won a million dollars playing the Mega Millions game. Sheila is a regular participant of the Mega Millions game and she has finally named a fortune to her name playing the game.
For Sheila, it was a dream that she always hoped would come true one day of becoming a millionaire. She was confident that someday, should will end up winning huge prize money and become the luckiest lottery player in the United States.
Although technically, Sheila wasn’t the luckiest as others have won higher prize monies than her, she was lucky enough to have won a million dollars.
According to the lottery officials, Sheila McNeal won prize money playing the December 5, 2021 draw for the Mega Millions game. The lucky numbers for winning the jackpot prize in the particular draw were 57-55-51-43-20 and 4.
The Megaplier for the particular draw, drawn by the lottery officials was 2X. Sheila had to match all the numbers from the draw to win the jackpot prize but she wasn’t able to match all of them.
Instead, Sheila managed to match the five primary numbers. The numbers helped Sheila win prize money worth $1,000,000. If Sheila had matched the Megaball as well, she could have won the jackpot prize and become the luckiest lottery player in the entire world.
Still, a million dollars is something that not every player gets to win. Even the odds of winning a million-dollar prize are 1 in several hundred million. This is because several millions of players participate in each lottery draw for the Mega Millions.
Several players tend to buy hundreds of tickets per draw, while many go on to buy dozens of tickets for the games. This is the reason why the odds for the games grow so high and make the prizes almost impossible for players to win.
However, Sheila’s luck worked against all odds and she managed to win $1,000,000. She had not sided with the Megaplier option, which is why she didn’t get the opportunity of winning $2,000,000.
Sheila informed the lottery officials that she has decided to save money and the first thing she is going to do is move into a mobile house. She is going to spend around $100k to get herself a mobile house with all the house utilities and appliances. According to Sheila, she is going to go out on a long trip and have the time of her life.
