A group did come forward Thursday to claim a $250,000 Mega Millions ticket that was sold at a Kroger's store in St. Johns. They just showed up, got their money, and left without any announcement to the media.
They've asked only to be identified as the "Lucky 7 Lottery Club." They are a family, three generations worth, and regular Kroger customers.
They tell us they rarely play the lottery but this time bought 10 tickets.
Each of the seven took home about $25,000 after taxes. They've lived in the St. Johns area all their lives. They'll use the money to pay bills and start saving.
