She is, however, no longer anonymous. She and her husband are $120 million dollars richer. The 56-year-old Curry used family birthdays to pick the numbers for her winning Mega Millions lottery ticket, she told lottery officials. And the family’s lucky number — 7 — was used for the all-important Mega Ball.
She collects the largest single win in Georgia history and will split the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot in U.S. history, totaling roughly $648 million, with winners in San Jose, Calif., lottery officials said. Curry chose the numbers 8, 14, 17, 20 and 39, along with lucky No. 7, officials said.
“It’s unreal … like I’m still dreaming,” she told lottery officials Wednesday after hearing her family’s numbers announced.
Curry did not attend the Georgia Lottery press event announcing the win on Wednesday and has made an effort to remain out of the media spotlight.
