Mega Millions jackpot won by Indian American!
Hira Singh is one of many Indian Mega Millions winner but one of very few jackpot winners.
After matching all six numbers it took him several days to realize that he had won the Mega Millions jackpot. He won the Tuesday draw but it wasn’t until the following Saturday he took the time to check his ticket.
The total size was 50 million US dollars and with payouts like that, it is easy to understand why it is one of the most played games in the online lottery in India!
Before checking his ticket he says that he prayed upon his god. Even though he saw that he had won the first time he checked his ticket Singh proceded to control it 3 more times.
10, 12, 16, 49 and 57 with a Mega Ball of 18 was the combination that awarded Mr. Singh his win.
After choosing to take his winnings as a lump sum Hira Sing received 30.2 million dollars after taxes.
Smallest Jackpot of 2019
Even though Mr. Singh never needs to worry about money again he took home the smallest of the Mega Million jackpots of 2019.
His win on the 12th of March was just 11 days after another big jackpot of $273 million. The winner after took home 2019s largest jackpot of a whopping $522 million!
I can imagine that Mr. Singh still is pleased even though his win was small in comparison to others but as the saying goes everything is relative.
And since comparisons are what we do best here let’s compare his win to other top lottery games available in India.
|6 aus 49||$49 973 055|
|Norway Lotto||$5 400 000|
|Finland Lotto||$17 174 775|
|La Primitiva||$112 914 260|
|Poland Lotto||$14 962 928|
As you can see his win places in the middle of some the most popular European online lotteries. With this new perspective, you understand that his win is quite extraordinary!
All I can do is wish him the best and that he uses his money wisely!
