Real-estate broker Tammy Pratt does not play the lottery very much. She only buys one ticket for the Mega millions whenever the jackpot exceeds $100 million. But gut feeling made her buy four entries for the Feb. 27 draw – and her instinct proved spot on.
Pratt, will not have money problems anytime soon after winning a huge $126 million jackpot, which after taxes will still be a hefty $54 million. Interestingly, this is the second big winner from Sullivan County; just last January a retired principal won an even bigger $326 million Megamillions prize.
