SALEM — A Portland couple won the $9 million Megabucks game from December 21st. Cindy Degner woke up her husband Randy the next morning to his disbelief.
“I had Randy hold the ticket and I read him the winning numbers. Then we went to the 7-Eleven to check the ticket and they said we needed to go to Salem. I think he was pretty convinced by then,” said Cindy.
The couple took the cash and will split the $3 million jackpot. The store at Southeast 112th and Powell is rewarded with a check for $90,000 for selling the winning ticket.
Cindy hadn’t played for nearly three weeks before getting the sudden urge, one that has changed the couple’s lives.
