How long will it take you to claim hundreds and millions of dollars if you win in the lottery? Reports from the California Lottery official states that 16 days after the reveal of two winning jackpot tickets, the second of the two winners has come forward to finally claim his millions.
This lucky winner is Steve Tran from Northern California. Tran is the second winner of the two winners of the $636 Million in the USA Mega Millions Jackpot. Tran reportedly purchased his winning ticket in a gift shop at San Jose California.
The $636 Million Mega Million Jackpot is reportedly the second largest lottery prize given away in the history of US Lottery. According to the Lotto officials the million dollar prize started its climb on Oct 4 and 22 draws passed and still no winners came. By the Dec 17 draw there were already around $336 million tickets sold.
On the other hand the other winner who is known as Ira Curry came forward to claim her millions on Dec 18. Curry is from Stone Mountain Georgia and lottery officials report that Curry took the lump sum of around $120 million after taxes. Curry bought her winning ticket in the Gateway Newstand located in the Alliance Center Building in Buckhead. Curry dwells in a two story home in a neighborhood of stucco houses with manicured lawns 10 miles east of Atlanta.
Steve Trans luck isn’t short because the store owner where he bought his ticket named Thuy Nguyen will receive $1million.
