South Carolina man follows up $1 million Mega Millions lottery win with proposal

Lottery24 – Celebrating lottery win with proposalA man from Charleston in South Carolina has won $1 million on the Mega Millions Lottery, and followed the win up with a proposal.

Fortunately for the winner, his fiancé said yes, and the pair had plenty to celebrate all in one say. “You’re going to see me in a tuxedo,” the Mega Millions Lottery winner told his partner as he got down on one knee and asked her to become his bride. A Canadian Lotto 649 winner from Saskatchewan, Canada, also proposed to his girlfriend after winning $14.2 million.

The couple told lottery officials that they chose the numbers for their Mega Millions ticket by selecting a combination of family birth dates. Fortunately, the chance they took on buying their ticket paid off as their choices matched the five main numbers in the Tuesday, September 19th drawing, winning them $1 million. A couple from New Zealand got engaged the day before winning almost $150,000 on the NZ Lotto.

With the winnings in the bank, the newly engaged couple told lottery officials that they can’t wait to start a new life together. “And we’re going to live a normal life,” said the happy bride to be. “This win won’t change us.” A Powerball winning couple from South Carolina also vowed not to change a thing after their $1 million windfall.

The pair said that after buying their ticket, they didn’t think to check it after the drawing had taken place until they heard that somebody had bought a winning Mega Millions ticket from the Circle K store on Folly Road, Charleston, the same store where they’d picked theirs up. The couple rushed to their kitchen to find their ticket and checked the numbers only to find out they’d matched numbers 9, 28, 31, 50 and 61. Another Mega Millions winning couple from South Carolina were shocked when they found out they’d won $5 million.

“I feel blessed,” said the new millionaire as he collected his prize with his new fiancé by his side. Presumably, the pair will now begin planning their dream wedding, just like a couple from Newquay did after they won £100,000 on the National Lottery.
