Mega Millions Win Has The Look of Mega Legal Mess
A Mega Millions win has the looks of a mega-legal mess after an apparent winner is claiming the winning ticket was purchased outside her lotto pool.
According to a NYPost.com report, Mirlande Wilson, 37, a worker at a Maryland McDonald’s, says she was one of three winners of the $656 million Mega Millions drawing Friday night.
The jackpot was the largest in U.S. history.
The win entitles her to roughly $105 million in cash, but the NYPost.com report says her co-workers are calling foul.
The co-workers claim that Wilson’s winning ticket was purchased as part of the lottery pool for which several workers paid $5 to enter.
According to the NYPost.com report, Wilson bought the tickets for the group and herself at the same store, a 7-11 convenience store in Milford Mill, MD.
