Bill Deluca is a man who lives by the old adage, “Happy wife, happy life.” And he knew buying his wife of 41 years flowers on Valentine’s Day would make her happy; so after he bought them, he walked next door and bought his weekly Lottery tickets. He also checked the ones from the night before. He went straight home and had his wife check the numbers on the Lottery’s website. That’s when he heard the screaming and knew his Mega Millions ticket was the one worth $3,471,009! Deluca says he will use the prize as a pension and continue playing games to pad that pension of him.
Another great winner of the Mega Millions jackpot are Emaley and Alex Escalera. After more than two months they decided to come forward and claim the Mega Millions jackpot worth more than half a million dollars! Emaley and Alex Escalera, arrived at the California Lottery’s Sacramento District Office recently with that lucky slip. Their ticket matched five out of six numbers in the Mega Millions drawing on November 4, 2014 to win $597,933! With their hope for a win now a reality, the Escaleras are carefully planning for the future. “Help our kids with college,” Emaley said. “Pay off everything we owe and that’s it. We want to live in peace.” While they are incredibly thankful to be living the dream, aside from this release, the Escaleras said they would decline additional media inquiries.
