A lucky Ashland, Oregon women claimed very hefty Oregon Megabucks jackpot, even though she is not a constant lottery player!
Cathy Silver was the owner of the single jackpot winning ticket for the Oregon Megabucks draw of October 18th, 2014. Last week, escorted by family, she finally claimed her $12 million jackpot prize at the Oregon Lottery office in Salem.
Silver admitted she does not participate in lottery games on a regular basis, so luckily for her, she somehow managed to purchase a ticket for the right draw. Even though she is not a hooked lottery fan, she said that when she does buy a ticket, she checks the winning numbers right away, so she knew she had won at the same day of the draw.
When she realized that it was her Quick-Pick six numbers that came up, she had to wake up her husband, despite it being 5 a.m. on a Sunday morning, to share the exciting news. The family acted with advice from an accountant, and waited to build up a financial plan before claiming their fortune.
Play this week and you might join Cathy to the Oregon Megabucks club of millionaires, which currently has 244 members! Good luck!
