The 2 million USD Mega Millions reward was won by a man (from Davenport) in the jackpot drawing about a month prior. He intended to divide the cash with his stepdad.
Sanford will share the prize with his stepdad Jason
Ben Sanford stated that he knew he had claimed large ever since the draw on 29th of July but had held off on claiming the reward while both Ben and his stepdad prepared preparations for the cash. Jason Sanford and Ben revealed that they often buy tickets with each other and that they’ve agreed to share any winnings.
Ben Sanford (thirty-seven years old), announced that he had purchased 6 tickets for the 29th (July) Mega Millions draw. The jackpot for the game that night had reached almost 1,300,000,000 USD, making it the 2nd-biggest reward ever claimed in the lottery.
The 1st 5 numbers on 1 of Ben’s tickets that night marked that he won 1 million USD prize. Sanford, however, had bought the Megaplier booster while buying the ticket, increasing the prize to 2,000,000 USD.
In the draw on 29th of July, the lucky numbers – 13 – 36 – 45 – 57 – 67 with Mega Ball – fourteen. Also, the Megaplier booster was two.
The evening of the draw, according to Ben Sanford, he checked the tickets and yelled in shock when he saw that one had won a significant amount. He said that as soon as he heard the news, he ran downstairs to tell his stepfather, who’d fallen asleep in front of TV, and requested if they might discuss it later.
The following day, everything became extremely real for them both, according to Jason Sanford. Despite Ben Sanford’s potential purchase of a new vehicle, the two indicated they planned to cautiously invest the cash.
The lucky ticket supplier will also get a prize
Ben Sanford purchased his winning lottery ticket from a shop named the Big Ten Mart, located at Middle Road 999, that will be awarded a 2,000 US dollars reward from the lottery firm.
