Maine co-workers win $3 million!
Drawing Date: 7/10/2015
July 17, 2015 - Congratulations to the “Gang of Fourteen” from Harding’s Maintenance Crew, who won $3,000,000 playing the Mega Millions game after matching the five white balls in the July 10 drawing. Good thing they spent the extra $1 for the Megaplier option that multiplied the standard $1 million Match 5 prize by 3x.
Up until recently their game of choice was Powerball, but they decided to switch to Mega Millions only on Tuesday nights. Fortunately for them the guy who buys the tickets for the group was off on Tuesday so he bought them for Friday night (July 10) instead…. and they won!
Each winner receives about $150,000 after taxes.
The winning ticket was purchased from the Cumberland Farms in Woolwich, Maine. Thanks guys for being so much fun and enjoy your winnings!
