John and Tina Rehm have been married for 48 years and when their 50th anniversary comes knocking, they will welcome it with open arms – and $1.000.000 in their hands. The lucky Michigan couple won this amazing prize in the Mega Millions drawing this Tuesday and it didn’t take them long to come forward. The Rehms missed the jackpot by only one number, but you could end up winning $39.000.000 with Mega Millions by matching them all!
The fortunate couple scooped the Match 5 prize worth $1.000.000 on January 19th, when the winning line consisted of the numbers 2, 17, 31, 39, 47 and the Mega Ball 9. Mr. Rehm decided to check his numbers after a friend told him that the winning ticket was sold at the Grand Party Store, where he also purchased his.
“When I had the clerk scan my ticket, she screamed: ‘Oh my God! You’re the winner!’” recalled Rehm, who quickly tucked the ticket into his money clip and went home to share the good news with his wife. Her reaction wasn’t enthusiastic at first, because she saw him looking shocked and speechless and “acting strange”.
“When he walked in he looked terrible. I kept asking him what was going on, and he was kind of half laughing and half crying. The next thing I know, he blurted out: ‘We won the Lottery!’ I was stunned. I picked up the phone and called the Lottery just to see if he was right,” said Tina Rehm.
When the win was confirmed, Tina and John immediately called their children to tell them they became $1.000.000 richer, but it took the couple a while to convince them they aren’t joking. They’re now planning to buy a boat, do some traveling with their family and “continue enjoying their life together” after almost five decades of marriage.
