Oregon Lottery to Present Albertsons with Giant Oregon's Game Megabucks Check (Photo) - 04/23/19

The West Union Road store sold the winning $10.4 million ticket

WHO: Oregon Lottery officials

WHEN: Noon, Wednesday, April 24, 2019

WHERE: Albertsons, 18425 NW West Union Road, Portland

WHAT: Oregon Lottery officials will present an over-sized display check to representatives of Albertsons for selling the winning Oregon’s Game Megabucks $10.4 million jackpot ticket. Lottery officials will also be handing out a limited number of free promotional Scratch-it tickets at the event.

BACKGROUND: Grant Brightman of Portland stopped at his local Albertson’s store to get dinner and on impulse, purchased a $4 Oregon’s Game Megabuck ticket that turned out to be worth $10.4 million.

Grant said he kept wondering if he was “hallucinating” after he checked the ticket using the Oregon Lottery website. In fact, the couple checked the ticket several times before driving to Salem to claim the prize. They took the one-time payment and after taxes took home $3.536 million.

During the 2015-17 biennium, more than $109 million in Oregon Lottery proceeds were directed to economic development, parks, education and watershed enhancement in Multnomah County, where Brightman lives and purchased the ticket. Since 1985, Oregon Lottery players have won more than $38 billion in prizes.

VISUALS: Oregon Lottery officials will present an over-sized ceremonial check to representatives of the West Union Albertsons and will also distribute a limited amount of free promotional Scratch-it tickets to patrons of the store.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned nearly $12 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit www.oregonlottery.org
