A Miami man became a millionaire at the start of March. And all it took was a little luck
A Miami man marked March 1st as the day he became a millionaire thanks to his Florida Lottery Mega Millions win.
If Felipe Castell had also chosen the Mega Ball number, he would have had another $ 750 million. But why be greedy?
Castell's five matching white ball numbers for the January 15 game were good enough to bring the 69-year-old a cool million. Castell is one of more than 3,000 people in the state who have won at least $ 1 million since the Florida Lottery started in 1988.
According to lottery officials, Castell bought his ticket at the Tom Thumb Convenience Store at 18400 SW 177th Ave. in Miami. He redeemed the winning ticket at a Florida Lottery Gainesville office on Monday.
Tom Thumb collects a grand as a bonus on the sale of the $ 1 million Mega Millions ticket.
Mega Millions bowed in 2013 and has awarded more than $ 719.5 million in prizes to 55.2 million players, according to the Florida Lottery. The next drawing is at 11pm. Tuesday March 2nd with an estimated jackpot of $ 43 million.
In November, the Florida Lottery announced that contributions to education in the state had exceeded $ 38 billion since 1988, according to a CBS4 report.
