Who won mega million
"Mega Millions" : Glückspilz wins the largest single lottery prize worldwide with $ 877 million
With more than 877 million US dollars, the US lottery "Mega Millions" has paid out the largest single prize in worldwide lottery history. The winner reported on Monday, four months after his lucky numbers were drawn, said the regional lottery company of the US state of South Carolina. In contrast to the usual practice in the USA, the winner was not initially identified.
The lucky guy, who has now become wealthy, had already won the jackpot, which was filled with more than 1.5 billion dollars, in October last year - and took an extremely long time filling his account. According to the US system, he has two options for paying out - and he has opted for the option of collecting the sum at once. As a result, he has to accept a substantial discount. To get the full amount, the winner would have to accept an installment payment over 29 years.
In the current case, the state of South Carolina, where the successful tipster resides, will receive around $ 61 million in income tax, as the lottery company said.
The highest single win in lottery history to date was won by a 53-year-old in the US state of Massachusetts in August 2017: she won $ 758.7 million in the "Powerball" lottery.
In January 2016, three players in the USA shared the largest collective lottery prize to date. The jackpot of the "Powerball" lottery had risen to 1.586 billion US dollars (1.47 billion euros). For comparison: 45.4 million euros was the biggest rain of money so far for the German “6 out of 49”. In December 2007, the sum was shared by three tipsters from Lower Saxony, Thuringia and Schleswig-Holstein. (dpa)
