Friday The 13th Lucky For USA Mega Millions Players?

Whilst Friday the 13th is commonly known around the globe for being a day which symbolises bad luck, this doesn’t seem to apply to Americans and specifically Mega Millions players. Christopher Colombus set sail on his journey to discover America on Friday the 13th and his journey was not only safe but also very successful.

Friday 13 December 2013 – Great day for Mega Millions players

The USA Mega Millions draw that took place on the 13th of December 2013 was proof that the USA Mega Millions is immune to the curse of Friday the 13th with numerous winners! Maybe they made a deal with the devil or maybe this was just proof that Friday the 13th can be a great day to play the lottery for USA Mega Millions Players. Let’s take a look at some of the players who won USD $1 Million on Friday the 13th.

Manhattan Guard wins $1 Million on Friday the 13th

55-year old guard Keith Robinson from Manhattan bought a quick pick Mega Millions ticket for the draw dated the 13th of December hoping that he would win the $425,000,000 jackpot. Whilst he wasn’t able to hit the jackpot, Robinson did match 5 numbers and in the process land himself a whopping $1 Million Dollar prize. I think it’s safe to say that Keith Robinson doesn’t believe in the superstition of Friday the 13th.

More $1 Million winners!

Dianna Wilson like Keith Robinson won $1 Million from the USA Mega Millions draw on Friday the 13th of December 2013 after matching the 5 main numbers that were drawn. Wilson used the win to pay off the mortgage for her parent’s home, purchase her own new house and car, and finally go on a vacation.

MM winner Deanna Wilson

John Morris was another lucky recipient of a $1 Million win on Friday the 13th of December 2013. Morris ignored the superstitions and was brave enough to go down to the store and get his hands on a quick pick Mega Millions ticket. The reward for his bravery, a win of $1 Million! Morris used his winnings to get himself a new SUV and some professional equipment for hunting.

Syndicate gets in on the winnings too!

Lottery syndicates win a lot of jackpots and whilst the 22-person syndicate from Syracuse, New York didn’t land a jackpot, I’m sure they were still over the moon to have won $1 Million on Friday the 13th of December 2013.

The syndicate members, who work together in the city’s department of finance and construction, put their money together every time the Mega Millions jackpot exceeds $100 Million. Friday the 13th was an extremely lucky day for this department with their quick pick tickets landing them $1 Million.

Friday the 13th definitely doesn’t seem to affect the United States and more specifically the USA Mega Millions. History could be set to repeat itself with today’s USA Mega Millions draw boasting a $161 Million jackpot.
