Mega Millions Winner Finally Claims $191M
An extremely lucky Mega Millions winner has beaten the immense odds and taken home a jackpot of $191 million! Jack Freney, the winner, is from California and he has been celebrating non-stop since hearing the big news. He is a private person by nature, so he didn’t reveal his face, but he did share some details about his win to California Lottery Officials.
Jack Freney shared with officials that he had very special plans for how he would like to spend his winnings. His chosen lottery numbers got lucky in the draw that happened on the 27th of January this year. He only claimed his massive windfall last week, however. He needed to take his time getting the right advice and carefully planning his next steps forward.
Jack bought his lucky Mega Millions ticket from Primm Valley Lotto in Las Vegas. That specific lottery retailer sells more California lottery tickets than any other state in the world. The store will be receiving a lovely $955,000 bonus prize for selling the winning ticket!
The director for the Primm Valley retail store, Kerri Matherly, said the following: “Over the past few weeks, we’ve been anxiously waiting to see who won, like everyone else. Out here at Primm, we pride ourselves on creating a one-of-a-kind experience and winning a lottery jackpot like this definitely is a one-of-a-kind experience.”
Jack’s big win certainly proved that his purchase was an amazing one. He has opted to accept his winnings in the form of a cash lump sum to the value of $114.1 million. Jack Freney not only won the jackpot, but he also won himself more money by matching five main numbers! Jack’s big win is the latest big one in California after Kent Li won a $1.5 million Powerball lottery prize.
When the press were curious about how he wanted to spend his money and asked him, he said, “This will allow me to correct all the wrong that I have incurred in my lifetime.” He refused to pose for any pictures and declined more media interviews, so we will never truly know what he meant by his statement. All we know is that he is planning to become a better person. He wants to do some good and share his blessing with everyone close to him in his life.
Jack’s winning jackpot number combinations were 17-37-53-54-61 and the Mega Ball 8. To become the next big Mega Millions winner, get your lotto tickets online today!
