The daughter of Jackie and Rande died a few years ago as a result of lupus and as grandparents and only family, they had to take care of her three children. Last week, official sources from the New Jersey Lottery released their story, after ensuring that these Long Branch residents were the million-dollar winner last March.

Grandparents who won $ 1 million

This was definitely a necessary stroke of luck for the two grandparents and their three grandchildren. According to portal 971 The River, the grandparent won Mega Millions’ second prize in the March 31 st draw.

The ticket had been purchased at the Long Branch Convenience Store and the winning numbers were 17, 24, 27, 32 and 58. The only missing number was the Mega Ball, which was 10. Had they hit the Mega Ball, they would’ve hit the jackpot.

The MegaPlier was number 3. Randie and Jackie did not play but if they had spent a dollar more on their bet to play this extra draw, their prize would have been 3 million dollars.

The day they went to collect and collect top prize, Jackie assured "this marks the beginning of good fortune for our family," between tears. While her husband Rande felt "very grateful, this will help a lot in our lives".

A friend of the two, identified as Debbie, said: "They are the people who deserve it most in the state of New Jersey." "They have helped many people in times of need and now it is up to them to receive this incredible blessing."

Jackie and Rande also said that with that money the first thing they want to do is pay their biggest bills and then they want to use the rest of the prize to raise their grandchildren. Definitely this is another story which proves the benefits of playing the lottery. Everyone around them is very happy for them and we hope that soon enough you too will have the same luck when you play your favorite lotteries online.
