Michael Burkett, has been announced as Washington’s fourth Mega Millions jackpot winner! He has won a monumental prize of $157 million, from a $5 Quick pick Mega Millions ticket. He purchased his ticket in Seattle at 7-Eleven, which is located at 9200 35 Avenue, WA 98126.
Burkett has made the decision to collect his lottery prize as a one-off lump sum of $102.8 million before taxes, rather than spread-out instalments over a number of years. A spokeswoman for the lottery, has released very little information about this individual, however we do know that his first purchase was an Alienware PC from Dell.
Burkett is an electric vehicle enthusiast, and therefore one of his other plans may include purchasing the new red Tesla! The Washington man came forward on Thursday, presenting his ticket at the lottery headquarters in Olympia, with his family.
