Like every year, 2015 too saw some great or rather mega wins in the Megamillions and Powerball. All these were exceptional wins. Some of these were single wine while some were shared wins. In such cases most people prefer to carry the prize money and hence they are given it by deducting the tax prizes which makes it safe and legal. Most of the winners after winning it, tend to quit their jobs too.

Three people had won over this ticket and undoubtedly the winners were great.
