Second Mega Millions $648 Million Jackpot Winner Comes Forward
The Mega Million Lottery on December 17 2013 was the second largest in history with a mind blowing $648 million on offer. This is the second highest jackpot in U.S. history and was shared by two lucky tickets. The first winner was Ira Curry of Georgia woman who wasted no time in collecting her half of the dream sum. She opted to take a lump sum and walked away with $123 million after taxes.
The second lucky winner remained a mystery until now as Steve Tran has come forward as the second lucky winner. Tran plays the lottery frequently but did not check his ticket as he went on vacation. Only on the Monday did Tran think that he may be one of millions of lotto players frantically checking their tickets.
Tran is a delivery truck driver and after checking his numbers did what all of us dream about. He left a message for his boss saying,” I’m really sorry boss. I hit the jackpot. I don’t think I’m going to come in today, tomorrow, or ever.” Tran purchased the winning ticket at Jenny’s Gift & Kids Wear in a San Jose strip mall.
