The biggest jackpot on Friday the 13th .Lotteries create hundreds of millionaires each year, but some prizes are naturally bigger than others. One of the biggest prizes won in 2015 was the whopping $202 million won on November 13th draw of the Mega Millions.
The winner kept their identity unknown, instead choosing to claim the prize via the Lucky Duck Passive Trust. Unsurprisingly, that anonymous player is now known as the Lucky Duck of Friday 13th.
- Michigan Magic
Friday the 13th of October 2017 was a very lucky day for one player in Michigan, who scooped a $21.5 million prize on the Mega Ball lottery. The same night saw a player in Rhode Island land the same price as the overall $43 million was split between the two.
Incredibly, this was the fourth time in a decade that someone in Michigan had hit the big time on Friday the 13th. Fred Topous had won $57 million on June 13, 2008 while Kendall Warren won $27 million on May 13, 2011. The biggest winner, Kelsey Zachow scooped $66 million on June 13, 2014.
- Francisco Delgado Rodriguez
The Spaniard predicted the EuroMillions numbers in 2011, winning the huge €121 million jackpot at the age of 30. It is believed that Delgado Rodriguez relocated to Miami, although a mansion in Sevilla was also purchased.
While the EuroMillions jackpot for Friday’s draw stands at a considerably smaller level, the winner will still land a 10-figure sum that’s set to change their life. Meanwhile, a Friday the 13th special will see 13 UK players land prizes of £1 million too!
- Isabel Zelaya
Friday, May 13th, 2009 is a day that’ll never be forgotten by Isabel Zelaya. The then-26-year-old from Hicksville ended the day $26 million better off than he’d started it. The money enabled the winner to start a restaurant business and presumably buy the house of his dreams.
Incredibly, Zelaya had been advised by a friend to avoid buying a ticket for the Mega Millions draw due to the superstitious date. You can only imagine how that friendship would’ve ended had Zelaya listened.
You still got chances of winning the lottery for this Friday the 13th draw, all you got to go is bet right and become a millionaire by Saturday morning.
