San Francisco Cab Driver Claims $1.9M Mega Millions Lottery Prize

California employs the pari-mutuel system wherein the amount of prize is dictated by the total number of tickets sold, along with the total number of winners per category. Since Mahendra KC was the sole winner of the 5 number category, he was able to take all what is in the prize pool which totals to $1.9 Million.

Mahendra KC is a humble cab driver before he won the lottery and is an immigrant from Nepal. The 50 year old winner will use his prize money to treat his chronic heart problems and also to get organ transplants for his parents.
