Itchy palm picks the winning Mega Millions Numbers!
Mary Shammas claims that she can chalk up her Mega Millions win to a mysterious itchy palm. Riding on the bus home to Brooklyn, New York, the 73 year old Mary suddenly felt a prickly feeling in her hand which she took as a sign to act quickly. She promptly got off the bus and went to the nearest seller to buy tickets for the next Mega Million lotto draw.
With the $5 left in her purse Mary bought five $1 tickets chosen using important family birthdays for her main numbers and picking Christmas, her favourite day of the year, for the Mega Ball. Mrs. Shammas had played the same numbers for decades so when she watched them drawn live on the TV screen she knew right away that she was the jackpot winner. Collecting her $64,000,000 prize as a lump sum, Mary shared the cash with her extended family who she was in an informal lottery syndicate with.
Mary had long ago devised a plan of how to spend $1,000,000 if she ever won the Mega Millions lottery however she had no idea how to spend her $64,000,000 winnings! Luckily for Mary she has plenty of grandchildren and great grandchildren who she plans on spoiling with her newfound fortune!↩ Go back to news
