North Carolina Education Lottery officials said Dow was on his way to work on Saturday – the next day drawing a $ 1 billion jackpot – when he collided with a deer in his 2021 Kia K5.
“So, I just got mad, went back home, went to bed and slept,” he said in a statement on Tuesday. “Then I got up and checked my ticket.

“I checked the fourth ticket and I saw ‘4’ and then the next number and the next number and the next number. I’m like, ‘Wow!’ It was just crazy. “

Dawe matched all five white balls – beating 1 for $ 12.6 million – to win the $ 1 million prize. This was doubled to $ 2 million when the 2X Megaplier was drawn.

“I went and showed my dad and my mom and everyone was happy,” he said in the statement.

After a state and federal tax withholding, Dowe claimed his award on Monday and took home $ 1.4 million.

According to the Mega Millions news release, the winning ticket for the Mega Millions Jackpot was sold at the Kroger store in Novi, Michigan.

According to the statement, Dowe planned to spend money on some repairs to his parents’ home, pay off his niece’s car, and buffer his savings.

He will also get his new car repaired, he said – and pay it off.
