From Rags To Riches- Lottery Jackpot Reaches An All Time High!
Written by Christopher Wallace
Have you ever had a dream that you woke up floating in a pool of cash? Have you ever sat down at a dinner party with some friends and talked about what you would do if you ever won the lottery? Well, if dreams were to ever come true for anyone, last week would have been the day you would have wanted it to happen. The weekly lottery drawing had a total jackpot of over two hundred and fifty million dollars ($269,679,049 to be exact)! The drawing was done last Sunday, March 2nd at 8:00pm. It turns out that the first prize of the jackpot (eighty percent of the total prize pool) had been split between forty two winners, each winning ticket paying the owner of it an incredible six and a half million dollars ($6,420,930)! But the fun didn't end there, oh no. It also turns out that another six hundred and thirty one people won a share of the second prize, which was the remaining twenty percent of the jack pot, which amounted to over one hundred thousand dollars.
Rumor has it that one man had purchased nearly four and a half thousand tickets for himself alone. We at the West End times tried to look into this story, but couldn't find too much information on the man. We were able to learn more about his winnings though. It turns out that out of all of the tickets he had purchased, there were six first prize winners and seventy second prize winners, amounting to a total prize winning of $46,503,410!
There has already been close to nine thousand tickets sold for tonight's drawing. The jackpot currently sits at close to sixty seven million dollars, and is still climbing. Perhaps this may just be your chance to go from rags to riches over night?
