The Stills won the $61 million (US) Mega Millions Jackpot in the draw held Friday, January 3, and picked up there check yesterday from the Tennessee Lottery headquarters.
The Stills chose not to be interviewed by the press, but 69-year-old Bettina told lottery representatives that she nearly fainted when she discovered they had won. She and Jonathan have played the lottery together for a long time and plan to share the winnings equally. "I am truly grateful for this blessing," Mrs. Still said. "I have played the Lottery since it first arrived in Tennessee and have always believed that I could win."
