Retiree Hits Half of Mega Millions Jackpot

'Just' a half quite enough for retired aerospace worker

This has been an excellent beginning of the year for a retired aerospace worker Jim McCullar, who claims he's been lucky on two occasions in his life - when he met his wife and when he won almost $19 000 playing keno. This third time represents his biggest financial lucky strike so far, as he was one of the two winners of the $380 million Mega Millions jackpot.

As the first of the two winners to claim the prize, McCullar was presented with a check for $190 million this week in Olympia, Washington. The other winner bought the winning ticket in Idaho, but they still haven't claimed the prize. The deadline to do so is 180 days.

According to this week's reports, the lucky winner's first reaction actually worried his wife Carolyn, who thought he may be experiencing a heart attack due to his weak heart. However, this lucky win will change the McCullars' life, and probably that of their descendants - six children and twenty three grandchildren.

"What this means to me is, the legacy is going to go generation to generation, they'll never have to worry, we'll never blow this," said McCullar, who can take their winnings in 26 installments or a lump sum of $90 million.
