Mega Millions is continuing to run up again with no big jackpot winner last time. But there have been several million dollar winners. In advance of announcing tonight’s Mega Millions winning numbers for 12/31/13, officials reminded news that Nebraska just got its first one million dollar Mega Millions winner.
Another winner making news this month was Amy Gourlay. She won during the recent December 17 draw. That night, she learned that she matched some numbers but not all of them. “I kept saying to my husband, ‘I don’t know what this means! I don’t know what this means!”
The Mega Ball number drawn that evening was 07. At stake was $648 million. Amy didn’t select 07 but 08 as her Mega Ball. She was one ball off, by one number. “There is a little bit of disappointment because with that much money you could do so many things for your family, for your community, and to support causes that you care about. But there’s a huge responsibility that comes with that much money and it would mean an incredible change in your life. So there’s also relief that we’ll be able to keep our life the same.”
For now she wants to “save a lot, share some with the community, and have a little fun here and there.” To get the Mega Millions winning numbers at 11 PM, click HERE for the results.
