Best Day for Getting a Million
Drawing Date: 3/14/2014
March 19, 2014 - A Westlake, Ohio, resident is touting Friday as one of his best days. William Little won $1 million after matching five numbers in the March 14, 2014 Mega Millions game.
A First Energy employee who will retire in 58 days, he receives $710,000 after mandatory federal and state taxes totaling 29 percent.
Little says he’s always said that somebody has to win, and on Friday, he was that somebody. After coming back from work, he went to the Northfield Rocksino. There he won $200, so he stopped and purchased a Mega Millions ticket on his way home. Checking his ticket, he knew he won something he just wasn’t sure how much. His son and daughter checked the Mega Millions numbers online verifying his million dollar win. Little said the win is wonderful and will contribute to his pension. He and the family were on their way back to the Rocksino for a lunch celebration, and Bill plans to take the family on a vacation.
