X-Ray Technician’s Quick Pick Wins $250,000


Krista Carroll, an unemployed radiology technician from Middlebury, Connecticut, experienced her very own once in a blue moon event when the numbers on her Mega Millions Quick Pick ticket purchased for the August 31 drawing perfectly matched the first five numbers drawn on that date.

The prize for such a feat was a whopping $250,000.

When I scanned my ticket in the Ticket Checker and it said it was a $250,000 winner, I didn’t believe itI thought it was a mistake, Carroll said.

When the clerk confirmed I really won $250,000, a nearby customer had to help me sit down”I thought I was going to faint, said Carroll with a laugh.
