Carolyn And Jim McCullar: Mega Millions Wash. Winners
Carolyn and Jim McCullar who live in Washington State were the winners of the $190 million Mega Millions lottery, much to their surprise. They are from the town of Ephrata and recently went to the city of Olympia which is the state capital in order to claim their prize money.
McCullar says that he knows the financial condition of the state is not good, but he is still concerned about taking care of his own finances before anything else.
Jim said that at the time of winning the money he would have like the total $355 million instead of splitting it with another winner but he added that $190 is still pretty good, especially for a couple from a small town in Mississippi.
Officials in Idaho are still waiting on the ticket-holder of the $380 million lottery to come forward so they can claim their prize.
McCullar said that winning the lottery was one of the few times he has ever been lucky in his entire life, other than getting lucky at Keno and winning $10,000 several years ago.
The couple expressed their happiness at winning the lottery, saying that they couldn’t be more pleased with what happened.
