Three family members from Arizona win $108M Mega Millions Jackpot

Officials from the state lottery announced Thursday that three members of an Arizona family hailing from Lake Havasu City won $108 million Mega Millions from an Oct. 22 draw.

Officials from Arizona Lottery said that the winners, a married woman, and her brother, chose to remain anonymous as it is allowed under Arizona law.

Officials from the lottery stated in a statement that they will receive $75.2 million before taxes if they choose the lump-sum cash option.

According to the statement, the winners revealed to lottery officials that they play the lottery 60 times a week and now plan to purchase a motorhome.

According to the statement, the winning ticket that matched all six numbers in this drawing was purchased in a bar in Lake Havasu City. It is located across the Colorado River and California.

Mega Millions can be played in 45 U.S. States, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The law of Arizona for 2019 stipulates that winners of Arizona Lottery prizes exceeding $100,000 automatically remain anonymous for 90-days, but they can choose to remain anonymous forever.
