A Long Neck man has won a million dollars following a Mega Millions drawing.
The anonymous winner, only identified as a 66-year-old retiree purchased a Mega Millions ticket at the Atlantic Liquors in Rehoboth Beach for the January 11th drawing. Delaware Lottery officials tell WGMD the man purchased the ticket as a “quick pick.” He initially believed he only had won a thousand dollars, but later learned he was wrong: it was actually a Million dollars.
He claimed the prize at the Lottery’s headquarters last Friday. Lottery officials say he’ll walk away with 760 thousand dollars following taxes.
