$35 Million Jackpot From May 27 Claimed By MAIM Revocable Trust

RELEASE DATE: 7/1/2011

(Austin, TX) – MAIM Revocable Trust, represented by Jim R. Ross, Trustee, of Arlington, Texas, claimed the Mega Millions® grand/jackpot prize from the May 27 drawing. The winning ticket matched all five numbers drawn, 5 – 7 – 14 – 28 – 56 and the Mega Ball 10.
 
Ross said, “The recipients are very excited about this win, and obviously, this has been quite a lifestyle change for them. It’s been a fun process dealing with that adjustment.”

The final total value of the annuitized prize is $35,216,748.92. MAIM Revocable Trust will receive an initial payment of $1,366,748.52 and 25 annual payments of $1,354,000.

 “It’s no wonder the trust members are excited about such a significant prize,” said Texas Lottery Commission Executive Director Gary Grief. “I’m sure the win pleased Tommy’s #10, too. The retailer is eligible for a $350,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.”

Tommy’s #10 is located at 321 S. Morgan in Granbury. This is the first Mega Millions grand/jackpot ticket to be sold in Granbury. Retailers in Granbury, however, have sold three Lotto Texas® jackpot-winning tickets. The McCraw Family Partnership, Ltd., claimed the largest of the three as an annuity in February 1996 for a total value of more than $21 million, before taxes.

Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated $105 million. Tomorrow’s Powerball® jackpot is an estimated $20 million, and the Lotto Texas jackpot is an estimated $6 million.
