Patient gets in hospital lottery pool and wins $1 million

One person who did not want to be identified bought $200 worth of tickets for the record draw

New Jersey hospital workers who helped an elderly patient become a Mega Millions lottery victor told Inside Edition they wanted to do something special for him.

The drawing Saturday night will come four days after someone won a $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest prize.

The hospital shared a picture of the winning ticket on Facebook. A hospital worker heard the news and invited him to join an employee pool.

States receive a percentage of lottery ticket sales and use the money to support public schools or to meet other needs.




When the numbers were drawn that night, it turned out Livingston - with a $2 buy-in - and 141 hospital employees had won $1 million, with their ticket just one number off a flawless match. Mickle says she first thought her uncle was confused when he said he won, but staff later confirmed his story.

"We were overwhelmed and humbled that they did this", niece Bobbie Mickle said.

"I still feel the same way", she said when she picked up her big check. "And I was like, 'Wow, he really did win'". "I appreciate very much and God bless you and have a happy, happy long life!"
