It just happened here in Florida. It wasn't $15 million, but winning MegaMoney twice is still a big deal (at least it would be to me!) Here is part of a Press Release from the Florida web site yesterday. Congrats to this woman. I've been playing the same game for years...nothing. When it's your time, it's your time!
