It wasn’t long ago when Kelsey Zachow was juggling a job as a bartender and a medical assistant just to get by. Even though money was tight, she had been ‘investing’ in five Mega Millions tickets every draw date for the past five years – four combinations she always used, and a lucky pick.
Of all the times luck could choose to visit her, it turned out to be 13th June 2014 a Friday. If she had negative superstitions about Friday the 13th, the $66 million Mega Millions jackpot she discovered she won 11 days after the draw should erase that permanently.
Zachow chose to receive a lump-sum payment of $27 million and has a lot of plans for her new wealth, among them:
1. A fully-loaded Mustang
2. Vacations to Ireland, Europe and the Caribbean
3. A big house set in a spacious land where she can keep animals
4. Educational plans for family members
5. Open an animal shelter in the future.
After taking her time (6 weeks) before claiming her prize, she should have everything well planned by now.
