ATLANTA (AP) An ironworker and his wife presented the winning ticket for a $275 million Mega Millions jackpot on Monday and said they'll use part of the windfall to replace their trailer home with a new house in coastal Georgia.
Robert Harris said he picked the winning numbers from Friday's multistate drawing 7, 12, 13, 19 and 22, plus the Mega Ball number 10 by using his grandchildren's birthdays.
"It's awesome," Harris, 47, told a room full of reporters after receiving the ceremonial big check from lottery officials. "We have been very blessed."
The jackpot is the single largest in the history of the 15-year-old Georgia Lottery and the third largest in Mega Millions history, lottery officials said.
