It’s the height of fall and Aisha Hawkins of Capitol Heights, Maryland just raked-in a $1,000,000 win with DC Mega Millions! The stay-at-home mom who runs a nonprofit benefitting critically ill children purchased her winning ticket at Palisades Deli & Market, 4554 MacArthur Boulevard, NW. “I feel very fortunate and thankful. I just want to be a blessing as I have been blessed,” says the very grateful mom of four who chose her own numbers. The winning numbers were 25-34-55-70-71; and the Mega Ball number was 1.
The $1 million ticket holder matched every number except the Mega Ball. This winning ticket was purchased for the Mega Millions game held on September 9, 2014. Aisha cashed-in her ticket in the later part of October. When asked about the delay she said, “I didn’t know that I’d won. When I called to say ‘I think I won,’ I thought it was for $250,000. I couldn’t believe it when the lottery lady said I’d won $1,000,000! It really does happen. People really do win the lottery—like me!” Lots of People Win with the DC Lottery!
