Mega Millions Jackpot
For the second time in less than three months, there's a major lottery jackpot up for grabs that's worth over $1 billion. Back in November, the Powerball reached almost a $2 billion jackpot.
Tomorrow night (Tuesday, January 10), another Mega Millions drawing will take place which could score a Mainer, Granite Stater, or someone from away in another part of the country $1.1 billion.
And there may be a cheat code on where the luckiest place to buy what is hopefully a jackpot-winning ticket is -- a convenience store in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Convenience Plus in Manchester, New Hampshire
According to a press release from the New Hampshire Lottery, a customer of the Convenience Plus on Roundstone Drive in Manchester, New Hampshire purchased a lottery ticket last Thursday, January 5 that turned out to be a winner.
And not just a one-time winner -- it's a prize they'll receive every single year for the rest of their life.
Lucky for Life lottery game
While the identity of the customer either isn't known yet or hasn't been released, the lottery game they played is -- Lucky for Life. While the jackpots for Lucky for Life may not get anywhere near as high as games like Powerball and Mega Millions, the benefits of winning are almost better.
If a player matches all 5 balls drawn plus the Lucky Ball, they'll win $1,000 every week for the rest of their life. However, as a second prize, if a player matches all 5 balls drawn but they don't match the Lucky Ball, the prize is still pretty sweet -- $25,000 every year for the rest of their life.
The second prize is what the customer to Convenience Plus on Roundstone Drive in Manchester won -- $25,000 a year for the rest of their life.
So, while it's not over $1 billion like the Mega Millions jackpot is tomorrow night, it's still a pretty sweet prize that the winner can bank on having every single year. Which means that Lady Luck may, for now, be living at that Convenience Plus in Manchester.
Regardless, if you play the lottery, good luck in winning the Mega Millions jackpot tomorrow night! And don't forget who told you about the possible luckiest place in New Hampshire to buy your winning ticket from if you do win!
