Lottery: 80-year-old man hits Mega Money for $2 million

William M. Miller, 80, of Miami, claimed the $2 million Mega Money jackpot from the July 15 drawing. The winning numbers were 12-26-40-43 and the Megaball was 15.

Not surprisingly, Miller chose the one-time, lump-sum payment of $1,475,677.

He purchased his jackpot-winning ticket at Market 54, located at 353 NE 54th St. in Miami. The retailer received a bonus incentive of $1,000 for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.

Meanwhile, Powerball rolled over again Wednesday night, driving the jackpot to an estimated $92 million. The numbers: 01-04-38-40-42 with a Powerball of 17.

Florida Lotto was a blank, too, going to $28 million for Saturday night numbers. You should've picked: 05-08-12-18-31-36.

Fantasy 5 hit four times, including at Mega Discount Mart, 8700 SW 137th Ave., Miami.

About the author
Maybe you've made the right play, maybe you haven't. Your heart speeds up, your stomach rumbles.

That's why it's called gambling.

ACTION is a view of the numbers, the psychology and the flavor of gambling here in South Florida, through our lens.

We do have one sure bet. There's something here for you.

NICK SORTAL began playing 3-card "gut" and "Indian poker" on high school band trips, moved on to "night baseball" and "pass the trash" during a Dr. Pepper-infused midnight game in the 1980s at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and now play in a regular neighborhood Hold 'Em game in Plantation. I have been given the assignment of writing about the gambling life in South Florida casinos for the Sun-Sentinel...which means sitting around watching poker on TV now counts as research.
