Will anyone win the Mega Millions jackpot February 8? It's anyone's guess, but you can't win if you don't play! The Mega Millions winning numbers are only worth a measly little $12,000,000, because one Michigan Mega Millions lottery winner scored the $19,000,000 jackpot earlier this week. Tonight's one-time cash lump sum is even lessÂ—just $8,000,000. Still, would you turn down millions of dollars if you end up being Friday's jackpot winner?

Michigan Mega Millions Winning Ticket Still Unclaimed
Michigan residents are beginning to get impatient. They want to know who the latest $19,000,000 Mega Millions jackpot winner is. Unfortunately, the February 5 ticket remains unclaimed. Some of the important information is already known about Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula winner, like where the Michigan Mega Millions lottery ticket was purchased. Festival Foods at 47401 Highway M26 in Houghton is the retailer that sold the ticket. That's all well and fine, but who is the lucky winner?
According to Michigan Lottery officials, the Mega Millions winner can take the annuity option and receive the $19 million over 26 years, or can elect to take the one-time cash payout of $13.9 million. Sadly, the lottery winner has to remember that taxes are deducted from both prize amounts.
The Michigan Mega Millions winner doesn't have to hurry up and claim their prize. In fact, the winner has a whole year to claim their ticket from Michigan Lottery headquarters! Could you wait that long to claim millions of dollars if you won the lottery?
