Erin and Raleigh Hill of North Carolina kept their ticket hidden away for about 6 months, until Tuesday, when they knew they had to face all the craziness that would follow. According to some lottery officials, they drove to Raleigh to claim the Mega Million prize as it was set to expire at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Erin and Raleigh each received a lump sum of $340,000 after taxes. The business that sells the winning ticket also receives money. In this case it’s $10,000.

Of course, when I hear of people winning a large amount of money, I start to think about what I could do with the money. I think most of us do that. According to lottery officials, They may buy a new home and take a trip to Ireland because of Erin Hill’s heritage.
