Merry Millionaire is a small lottery that is only played within the state of Illinois. The maximum jackpot that a lottery winner could win is $2 million. This is a relatively small lottery game and less number of people participates in it. This is why the odds of winning this lottery are high. The draw of this lottery is held on every Sunday and the winning numbers are published on the Merry Millionaire’s official website.

A 60-year-old man named David Martinez won the $2 million jackpot previous week. He lives in a small village named Gurnee in Illinois. He said that as soon as he discovered that he had won the jackpot, he and his wife started jumping with joy. Well, we are unable to imagine what a 60-year-old man would look like jumping with his wife with joy. It’s good to know nobody was hurt in this modest celebration.

Mr. Martinez said that with this money he will go on a vacation to Hawaii with his wife. He also told the press reporters that he will pay off all his outstanding bills and will also invest some of the money. Contrary to what everyone was looking forward to, Mr. Martinez didn’t withdraw all the prize money in one lump-sum rather he chose the option that will pay him $100,000 at the beginning of every year for the next 20 years.

Mr. Martinez won the jackpot on Sunday but he visited Lottery Price Center in Des Plaines to claim the prize money on Thursday, 1st December 2016. He said that he purchased the Merry Millionaire scratch-off ticket from the Citgo located on Grand Avenue in Gurnee. The owner of Citgo was also happy to have sold the winning ticket at his shop. The owner of the store will receive a bonus of $20,000 for selling the winning ticket.
