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 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 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 report, Wilson bought the tickets for the group and herself at the same store, a 7-11 convenience store in Milford Mill, MD.
