Wouldn’t it be exciting to win $1 million dollars, what would you do with the money? Congratulations to Marjorie Robert of Huntersville for winning the July 29th Mega Millions jackpot of $1 million dollars. Robert bought her lucky $2 Mega Millions ticket from the Shop N Save on Mecklenburg Highway in Mooresville. She matched all five white balls to win the $1 million prize. The odds of matching all five white balls are 1 in 12.6 million.

She arrived at our lottery headquarters yesterday to collect her prize, and after federal and state tax withholdings, she took home $710,101. Robert’s win was one of two $1 million wins in North Carolina in the drawing for a $1.33 billion jackpot that was won in Illinois the same night. Friday’s Mega Millions drawing offers us a $65 million jackpot. A winner in North Carolina could take home the jackpot as an annuity paying out the $65 million over 29 years or choose instead to take home $37.9 million in cash.

Ticket sales from scratch-off games for the lottery raise more than $2.5 million a day on average for education. For details on how money $62.6 million raised by the lottery made a difference in Mecklenburg County in 2021, visit and click on the “Impact” section.
