He missed the MEGA Millions® jackpot by just one number, but you won’t hear this man complaining.
Darrell Norris says what his Quick Pick® ticket did bring to his household is plenty. His Lottery ticket successfully matched the numbers 2, 14, 29, 53 and 55, missing only the Mega number of 31 in the draw on May 29. That winning combination netted him $179,442.
“There’s always a little bit of ‘Well, shoot. One number,’” Norris admitted and immediately added, “I can’t complain. $179,000 is more than I would have anticipated.” The win comes at a perfect time. Norris and his wife just started remodeling their home. “We had money for the construction, but didn’t have money for the flooring yet.”
Don’t look for the couple to upgrade the materials now that they have a bigger budget to play with. “We’re very conservative with our money,” said Norris, opting instead to add to their savings.
