Print page

Imagine turning on the tv and finding out you just hit the jackpot. Wouldnt that be a great feeling? Well that was reality for a Atlanta and San Jose couple.  The winning lottery number were 8,4,17,20,39. The store owner Thuy Nguyen received one million dollars just because the winning lottery ticket was sold in his store in California. The  total jackpot was 636 million dollars and they could either take 318 million overtime or 150 million all at once. This is related to the government because the Mega Million is ran and funded by the federal government. The federal government benefits from it because the government taxes money from the winnings.
