$49M Texas Mega Millions jackpot claimed by trust

Mega MillionsMega Millions: $49M Texas Mega Millions jackpot claimed by trust

By Todd Northrop

AUSTIN — The $49 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot won in Texas this past October was claimed this week by a trust, effectively keeping the real winner anonymous.

The trust is humorously titled, "It Will Buy Me a Boat Revocable Trust Dated November 16, 2016".  Garon R. Horton, an attorney from the Horton Law Firm in Rockwall, is the Trustee.

The winning Mega Millions numbers drawn on Oct. 11, 2016, were 36, 39, 42, 45, and 48, with Mega Ball number 3.

The claimant selected the cash value option at the time of purchase and will receive $32,343,234.00.

For selling the jackpot-winning ticket, the Quicktrip, located at 12631 Lake June Rd. in Balch Springs, is eligible to receive a $490,000 retailer bonus.

The claimant requested minimum publicity, which the Texas Lottery offers to its big winners.

Mega Millions is played by picking five different numbers from one to 75 and one number from one to 15. To win the Mega Millions jackpot, players must match all six numbers drawn including the Mega Ball. Players matching fewer numbers may not win the jackpot, but still walk away big winners. By choosing the Megaplier for $1 more per play, players can multiply their non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four or five times, winning as much as $5 million.

      I agree! It will keep the majority of the beggars at bay but the most determined parasites will eventually unveil their real identity....not that it will do them any good especially if the winner decides to purchase a home in a guard gated private community.

                .

                Congratulations to the winner. I sure do wish I had won part of that.

                • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
