It took a week but we finally know the other winner of the Mega Millions jackpot and her name is Holly Lahti. Wondering why it took the single mother so long to claim her prize? Well because it appears she is desperately trying to avoid the spotlight so that she can get her affairs in order. Good luck staying out of the spotlight Holly, people are going to be all up in your business now, I know I want to see at least a picture of her.

So what do we know about this woman who is now a very wealthy lady? Well in terms of a biography this is what we know about the 29 year old from Rathdrum, Idaho, which is a town of about 7,000 people according to public records. Holly is a single mom of two daughters. She is currently separated from her husband Josh who is the father of the two girls. Up until Monday, Lahti worked at the Inland Northwest Bank, she resigned for obvious reasons.

That my friends is pretty much all we know right now about Holly Lahti the Idaho mom who won half the mega millions jackpot. Everyone from her relatives to her former employer to the manager of Ady’s Convenience and Car Wash where she bought the winning ticket have said Holly is not only very deserving of this good fortune but a wonderful down to earth woman. However until Holly herself speaks with the media everything is just speculation in my book. I will say this though I respect her for wanting keep to herself it says a lot, like clearly she isn’t looking to become famous. Those are my thoughts let me know what you think about Lahti, especially if you have any additional information on her.

    Wishing to win the lotto is something that I have actually made myself crazy about…I hear you have to randomly play, unplanned to win.
