Only a week after the latest Powerball jackpot winner claimed $144.000.000 via “trust”, the Ohio resident who won $202.000.000 playing Mega Millions last month has chosen to do the same. The Lucky Duck Passive Trust from Columbus claimed the amazing prize on behalf of the lucky punter, who shielded their identity by not collecting the cheque in person. Join the ranks of these fortunate people in the next Powerball drawing – play now to scoop $164.000.000!
Back on November 13th, one player from Columbus matched the main numbers 17, 18, 31, 35, 59 and the Mega Ball 9, becoming $202.000.000 richer. The winner chose to receive the jackpot as the lump sum payment, amounting to around $87.000.000 after taxes.
The golden Quick Pick ticket was purchased at the Blendon Drive Thru in Columbus and few days after the drawing, the store owner Miqdad Daas received $100.000 retailer bonus for selling it. The 54-year-old heard the good news from his brother and said that he intends to use the bonus to expand his business.
“We’ve been talking about some new coolers inside and maybe paving the parking lot. When you have a business like this, you always have to spend… to keep the customers happy,” explained Daas.
The ticket sold in his store turned one Columbus resident into the winner of the third largest Mega Millions jackpot of 2015. The top spot is held by Jesus Davila Jr. from Naperville who has scooped $265.000.000 back on January 16th, becoming the first Mega millionaire of the year. He’s followed by John Williams and Neal Logue, two friends who shared $262.000.000 after matching all the winning numbers on June 2nd.
