Brett checked his tickets on the mobile website while sitting in his car on lunch break; he was bored and had a pile of them in his wallet. He found a ticket that won $150 and texted his wife right away, stating “I won $150, I’m going to go buy that shotgun now” and she responded “Ok, whatever.” Immediately after Brett sent the text, he checked another Mega Millions ticket and found out he won $10,000! Brett said that he’ll be keeping a thousand dollars or so and give the rest to his wife. Together they’ll pay off bills and as Brett said, they’ll get “a little closer to where they want to be.” He has two sons, 17 and 14 years old, who he frequently takes out target shooting; his proposed purchase of a shotgun will go to good use.
Congrats to Brett Thomas from Meridian, ID who won $10,000 on Mega Millions! Ticket purchased at Fast Eddys in Meridian.
