I only live about twent-five minute drive from " Jenny's Gift and kids Wear Store " where that winning Mega Millions lottery ticket was sold and congratulated Mr. Thuy Nguyen. Thuy was so excited about getting a bonus of $One million dollars for selling that ticket! I think he should have closed his store for a few weeks at least to hyper-down. Thuy said it was Bhuda that got him his bonus. I don't believe it at all,it was pure luck,that's all.

    In california, you have 60 days from the time its VALIDATED to chose your payout option. You have up to a year to claim it for MEGA MILLION JACKPOT claims. Two separate steps. One is Validating , the other is the claim choice for payment. 

    So if you won the drawing on Jan 1, and go down to the lottery headquarters in May, Thats your validation day (May), then you have 60 days from May to make a choice on payment type (cash or annuity). Clock starts ticking from draw date for 365 days to make a claim. 

    Most folks usually make their choice known when they file claim, yet its not mandated according to what is being sited on the California website.

      It is great to know that wheter the prize is claimed or unclaimed it will end up in a very good use. After reading this article I am also excited to find out who the winner is, hope he/she will show up soon. What I'm thinking is the unfortunate instance that what if the ticket was lostor burned. Well hope not because that ticket is definitely a life-changing one.
