Mega Millions $1.05 Billion jackpot is claimed by Oakland County Lottery Club
The $1.05 Billion win that occurred on the 22nd of January, 2021 was recently claimed by the Oakland County Lottery Club. The winning ticket was purchased at Kroger, situated at 47650 Grand River Avenue in Novi, and its numbers were 22 – 04 – 26 – 42 – 50 – 60 and the Mega Ball was 24. The club decided to take the one-time lump sum payment of approximately $776 Million rather than the annuity payments for the $1.05 Billion. The $776 Million saw a 24% federal tax as well as 4.25% in state taxes which resulted in the club’s final sum being $557 Million. Kroger collected a bonus commission of $50,000 for selling the winning ticket in which they donated to the Food Bank Council of Michigan.
This Mega Millions win was ground-breaking, as it was the third-massive jackpot won in the United States, as well as the biggest jackpot ever won in Michigan.
