Some may think of "Friday the Thirteenth" as an unlucky day.
But for one Mega Millions lottery ticket purchaser who went shopping at the Chevy Chase Giant at 6 Wisconsin Circle last Friday, Sept. 13, it was a very lucky day. The ticket that person bought at the supermarket won $250,000.
The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday, Sept. 17, and the jackpot is up to $130 million ($88.2 million if choosing the cash option, in which one receives all of the winnings at once, but a lesser amount overall), according to a statement from the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.
Does knowing that a winning ticket was purchased so close to home make you want to purchase a ticket? If so, would you want to purchase it at the Giant in Chevy Chase? Tell us in the comments.
