Virginia man wins $200 million Mega Million jackpot
A Virginia man has claimed a $200 million Mega Millions jackpot, nearly five months after winning the prize.
Virginia lottery officials say Steve Williams of Shenandoah waited to cash in his winning ticket until after he could meet with financial and legal advisers and plan his future. The drawing was on Oct. 16, 2009.
Williams elected to take the cash option of $125 million, rather than receive the full amount paid out over 26 years.
His check was presented on Friday during a ceremony at James Madison University in Harrisonburg.
