$636 millions: Californian Who Sold Winning Ticket Wins $1m But Georgia Vendor Gets Nothing
YOUNG Soo Lee , the owner of a newsstand in Atlanta, and Thuy Nguyen of San Jose, Calif., each sold one of the two winning Mega Millions tickets, worth $636 million in all before taxes.
Nguyen earned $1 million, as per California state law. Lee could get nothing.
That seems incredibly unfair. Nguyen says he is “very lucky”. Lee might wonder why she gets to live in a poorer state than California and win less for her customer’s good fortune?
“I’m so excited and so happy now,” Soolee said. “I love my store and the customer now.”
That loved customer may care to give sweet Soo some money.
