Portland couple wins “free” $5.9 million jackpot

by Patrick Johnson | Mar 16, 2017

March 15, 2017 - Salem, Ore. – A retired Portland man won $5.9 million on a free Oregon’s Game Megabucks ticket he won earlier in the week.

Bob Frost, who regularly plays Oregon’s Game Megabucks with his wife, said he had never won a prize with free Oregon’s Game Megabucks tickets. Megabucks players whose tickets match three of six numbers receive a free quick pick ticket.

“We win free tickets all the time when we play, but have never won anything with the free tickets,” Frost said Monday. “That’s until today.”

Frost and his wife have a morning ritual on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays – the mornings after the Megabucks drawings – where they have a cup of coffee and check their numbers. He always checks the free tickets last, because he hasn’t won anything with them.

“The first line of numbers on the free ticket didn’t have a single number,” he said. “So I immediately thought it wasn’t a winner. When I started checking the second set, when I got to three numbers I started thinking this could be it.”

Each single Oregon’s Game Megabucks ticket has two set of numbers.

When he handed the ticket back to his wife, her first thought was that she wrote the numbers down wrong and pulled up the numbers again on OregonLottery.org. That’s when the couple started realizing they had won.

“We didn’t know if you could win the jackpot on a free ticket, so we were looking on the Lottery website trying to see if there was a loophole or something,” he said. “When we didn’t find anything, we decided to go buy a dishwasher. We needed one and figured even if we didn’t win, it was still needed.”

When he claimed his prize on Monday, Frost said this year was his 25th wedding anniversary and the couple are planning a trip to Italy with the winnings. Frost opted to claim the $5.9 million prize as a lump sum payment of $2.95 million and after taxes took home $1,976,500. He is the 259th Megabucks millionaire.

Frost purchased the original Megabucks ticket which was worth a free ticket at fittingly-named Lucky Spot in Portland. He then claimed the free ticket at the Lucky Spot in Portland. The retailer will receive a 1-percent selling bonus, bringing in $59,000 for the store.

The winning numbers were 1-7-31-40-44-47 for the Saturday, March 11 drawing. Frost’s free ticket matched all six numbers. Oregon’s Game Megabucks numbers are drawn every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

Oregon’s Game Megabucks is the Oregon Lottery’s local draw game which features a draw of six numbers out of a set of 48. Prizes start at $1 million and grown until someone wins.  

Lottery officials recommend that you always sign the back of your tickets with each Oregon Lottery game you play, to ensure you can claim any prize you may win. The Oregon Lottery reminds players to always sign the back of their Lottery tickets, regardless of the game. In the event of winning a jackpot, they should consult with a trusted financial planner or similar professional to develop a plan for their winnings. Prize winners of more than $50,000 should contact the Lottery office to schedule an appointment to claim their prize.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned more than $11 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit www.oregonlottery.org

    How my marriage was brought back to life by Professor Rojo Spiritual Magical SpellI had been living in great bondage for the past 4 years suffering in the hands of a cheating husband. We were living happily until he meant his old time girl friend and he started dating her again outside our marriage and before i knew it he stopped caring for his own family, to the extent that he was planning to marry her and divorce me. I cried and reported him to his family members but he never listened to anyone and to cut the story short, i came in search for a real spell caster who could destroy their relationship and make him come back to me and our 2 kids again; on my search i saw people sharing testimony on how their marriage was restored by Professor Rojo and, then i pick his email and told him the problem that i was going through, and he agreed to help me and told me never to worry. After he had finished casting the spell, on the second day, they both had a quarrel and he beat up his girlfriend, break up with her and he returned back home begging me to forgive him. For those of you that are faced with this similar problem in your matrimonial home, please contact him now on rojospiritualtemple@gmail.com & rojospiritualtemple@hotmail.com.

    I was with my ex for 3 years n 6mthns n he cheated on me so we split, before he left me, we were planing to get married in the future, I loved him so much but I became tired of him lying to me every time he opens his mouth, I went into search for help in the internet, I tried many different spells from almost every place locally as well as online and none of them worked, I almost gave up hope because I thought i will never see my lover again forever, one day i saw some testimony about this powerful spell caster Dr. Todd  i emailed him and i asked him to help me bring back my lover and he did A Lover Spell for me And after some days, my lover returned back to me I'd like to say that i got a positive result from (manifestspellcast@gmail. com) ever since i used his love spell, my lover have learned to appreciate me more and more day by day, and he doesn't take me for granted.

    I want to thank all those who have been helping others get their loved one back with the help of doctor odunga. You guys really helped me find the right spell caster. This is about a real spell caster who did a great thing for me. My name is Kurtis Will. This testimony is about this great spell caster doctor odunga who helped me restore my love life back. Me and my wife had a fight and this fight led to us filing a divorce paper with the court and i had made up my mind. My wife was also at the same time furious about the whole issue and my family was broken into two opposite sides. With advises from a good friend of the family i decided to save my marriage and consult a spell caster to save my marriage. I went online into the internet and searched for a real spell casters testimony and after reading the testimony of doctor odunga i knew he was the spell caster  need to save my marriage and my family from being divided. It was a twist of fate when my wife came to me one evening and said she had withdrawn the divorce papers and she don't want to leave me anymore that she loves me so much. I knew that the spell had worked and my marriage had been saved from jeopardy. This is a real spell caster and i believe there are people who needs the help of a spell caster. Why not contact the one and true spell caster to put an end to all your problems and save your love life just like he did save my marriage. Thank you so much doctor for everything you did.

    I want to deliver a testimony here on this website about a spell caster who helped me bring my ex back to me. My ex broke up with 8 months ago and i have been very lonely without me seeing him around me anymore. I met a friend who introduced me to Doctor Odunga and i have been very grateful since i met this spell caster because it did not take me a week when i met this spell caster that my ex came back to me. I contacted doctor odunga and i explained everything to him and after 2 days he told me everything is complete and within 24 hours my ex called me and asked me where i was that he wants to see me and I told him i was at the gym and soon he pulled his car at the front of the gym and knelt down to beg me. I am very happy i met Odunga spell caster and if you need help contact him immediately at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and his website is odungaspelltemple.wordpress.com

    You see so many spell casters but many are fake. My name is Oliver Jack Brian from United States here in Ohio. I am a person who plays coupons and casino spins. I contacted some spell casters to help me with a lottery spell to win big money when i play my game and they all told me wonderful things that would make me believe them but they failed. These fake spell casters are non other than Odudu, Ashra and some others. I went to a spell temple in Seattle of a man who i have heard about his work in the US to help me with my request and the first thing he asked me was how i got to hear of him and i told him that a friend led me there. This man told me to go and come back the next day. When i returned the next day there, he told me my spell has already been cast as i entered his temple yesterday and my wish would come true and i should go back home, within 7 days after i met him, i played another big game in Las Vegas and i won $1,456,856 USD at the casino spins that night. I went back to the temple the following morning to show my gratitude and this man told me to only share a testimony of how i met and he helped me with this. Please, everyone, do not meet any other spell caster to help you apart from Doctor King. Have you heard of him? You have now. If you can go to his temple in Seattle, it will seriously help you like it did mine but his email online to contact his temple is ultimatepowerspells@yahoo.com and his website is ultimatepowerspells.wordpress.com Try and meet this man and know the good things of life

    Hello, I am from Seattle, Washington. My name is Cory Wild  and i very happy i met doctor King. This is not a joke, i really did thi spell casting thing. He solved my problem in 2 days as he said and i had my ex boyfriend back to me. My ex was a useless person and he had been involved in so many crimes and i am a good girl from a popular family here in Seattle. It was the night before Easter, my ex was involved in a drug deal crime that got him arrested and i left him. Initially, i always told him that i cannot stand his behaviour and he has to stop what he is doing or I will leave him until this night when he got caught. He was taken to jail for over 4 months and i missed him so much. I searched and read a testimony about about doctor King and i decided to tell him everything and he told me not to worry and he will solve it. Within 2 days, my boyfriend was let out of jail and he reconnected with me saying he will never go back to his previous life and he is here with me to stay. I loved him more when he said those words to me and i promised doctor King i will share my experience with him to anyone who seeks for help just like i found him. I want you to please contact him and he will help your problem. His contact email is ultimatepowerspells@yahoo.com and his website is ultimatepowerspells.wordpress.com

Prior to this time i had spent thousands of dollars all in a bid to get a lottery win but it never came through.I came across a post saying there are spell casters who help with lottery wins and i contacted a couple but it didn't work until i met eduduzadsontemple@yahoo.com and i was told what to do and i followed instructions. It was less than a week of meeting Dr Zadson and my win was worth over $2,000,000.00 and i had recovered all i had lost and am thankful cos i had faith in him and it worked for me. If you want your story to change and and transform your losses to wins then seek no further but contact Email : eduduzadsontemple@yahoo.com or +1240-892-4311
