Both Big Lottery Jackpots Each Had One Winning Ticket
One person in Florida and one person in New Hampshire have entirely new lives after the weekend drawings.
The winning Mega Millions ticket, announced Friday, was sold at a 7-Eleven in Port Richey, Florida and according to state law the winner must come forward and identify themselves. While the winner has not done that yet, one can assume they are getting their affairs in order before putting a face to 450 million dollars.
If that wasn't enough money and excitement for the weekend, Saturday night's Powerball Drawing claimed one winning ticket too. The winning ticket was sold at Reeds Ferry Market in Merrimack, New Hampshire making this little convenient store the seller of the 8th largest jackpot in lottery history at $559.7 million.
Over a billion dollars between two people makes this a very rich weekend. Both the Mega Millions and Powerball Jackpot will both restart at $40 Million.
