Four people in Michigan win $1.05B Mega Millions prize

BY , Mar 12, 2021 8:24 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Four people in a suburban Detroit lottery club have won a $1.05 billion Mega Millions lottery jackpot and will share $557 million after taxes.

Officials made the announcement Friday, nearly two months after the Jan. 22 drawing.

The winners chose the lump sum option, which means an immediate payment of $776 million.

After taxes, it amounts to $557 million for the four.

Their names weren't released.

They have a lottery club in Oakland County called Wolverine FLL Club and had the single jackpot-winning ticket from the drawing.

Their attorney, Kurt Panouses, says the winners plan to stay humble and "pay it forward through charitable giving" in southeastern Michigan.
