Sandeep "Sunny" Singh isn't too concerned about his girlfriend breaking up with him. The Massachusetts Mega Millions lottery winner matched all six Mega Millions winning numbers in the October 17 drawing. The Massachusetts man is spitting the $61,000,000 jackpot with another California lottery winner who also matched the same Mega Millions numbers.
The twenty-two year old Mega Millions winner says he was heart broken at first, but $30,000,000 is helping him move on! No doubt the girlfriend is wishing she stuck around a little longer? Singh was chuckling when he said, "She broke up with me, but right now I'm not really worried about it," Singh said. "I was heart broken at first, but now I'm getting over it," reported Boston.com.
Lucky Mega Millions Winning Numbers
Singh's lucky Mega Millions winning numbers for the drawing were 13, 37, 40, 46, 52, and a Mega Ball number of 29. After splitting the $61,000,000 jackpot with the California Mega Millions winner, Singh received a ceremonial check of $30,500,000. However, Singh decided on taking the cash prize of $23,000,000. After all was said and done with Massachusetts state and federal lottery taxes, Sandeep Singh will end up with about $16,100,000. That's quite a lot less than what he would have ended up with if he was the sole lottery winner. But Singh doesn't seem concerned, especially now that he doesn't have to share any of it with his ex girlfriend!
"Sunny" Singh, who lives in Hyannis, plans to quit one of his jobs at Best Buy after a two week notice. He's planning on staying with Citizens Bank for a while, at least until after the end of the fiscal quarter in December. He plans to pay off his mother's mortgage, share the prize with family, donate money to charity, and go back to college to get his bachelor's degree in business. He's still in a bit of shock and not sure what else he wants to do with all his millions.
The retailer will also get a huge chunk of money for selling the Mega Millions winning ticket. AM/PM Convenience on Bearses Way in Hyannis, Massachusetts will receive a check for $50,000.
Winning Lottery Secrets?
So what's Singh's lottery strategy? He says he doesn't have one! He only buys Quick Pick tickets and not for every drawing. He doesn't have favorite numbers, and he's only been playing for about one year.
Singh's girlfriend may have recently dumped him, but chances are he won't be single very long. Now that he's a multimillionaire, this twenty-two year old will have a long line of girls waiting at his door!
Please Play Responsibly
Remember, playing the lottery should be fun, but sometimes too much lottery fun can be addictive and could ruin lives. Please play responsibly, and don't spend more than you're willing to lose.
