Winner chooses cash option
A Mechanicsville man will be able to live very comfortable thanks to a Quick Pick Multi-Match ticket. The 41-year-old matched all six numbers to win the $1.9 million jackpot on March 29th. The winner chose the cash option of $1.35 million.
The lucky winner, who plays the Lottery occasionally, went back to the store where he purchased the ticket and checked the ticket scanner to see if he had a winner. He had several tickets to check, but the fourth and final ticket, revealed the message, “Claim at Lottery Headquarters.”
Upon viewing the message, the excited winner’s hands started to shake and he decided to head home to look up the winning numbers on his computer. He tried repeatedly to call his wife, who didn’t answer. Finally, she called him. “I was in shock,” his wife said. The couple went to the bank and purchased a safety deposit box to store the winning ticket.
The happy couple will pay bills, pay off their home and save for their children’s college fund and a short Hawaiian vacation. The winning ticket was purchased at Boatman’s Mini Mart located at 41106 Oakville Rd. in Mechanicsville.
