$208-Million Mega Millions Ticket Was Bought on Long Island And The Winner Still Has Not Stepped Forward To Claim The Prize!
You have got to be kidding me! Here we have a Mega Millions winner of 208 MILLION DOLLARS, the largest jackpot ever won on Long Island, and the winner has not yet came forward to claim the prize money. Are you joking me!?! I would've had my heart attack, used a defibrillator on myself, came back to reality, quit my job and been on the next flight out!
As of today, no one has stepped forward with the winning ticket, numbers 3, 32, 33, 39, 43 and a Mega Ball of 8, says New York Lottery spokeswoman Carolyn Hapeman. "That can take a matter of minutes or a matter of weeks," Hapeman said, recalling the actions of previous large-jackpot winners.
The winning ticket was a quick pick, and the lump sum cash option -- a onetime payment worth $153.3 million, before taxes!
The market where the winning ticket was sold is in a mall at 1235 Middle Country Rd. a typical "middle class" neighborhood in Long Island.
The ticket was purchased at the courtesy desk of the store and workers can not recall whom the purchaser of the ticket was.
Hopefully, whomever this lucky, random person is, they haven't been jacked or didn't die from heart failure when they realized they won! It's time for Long Islanders to start calling grandparents and aunts & uncles with heart conditions that live in that area and make sure!
