“As soon as we heard how big this jackpot prize is, we couldn’t miss out on the chance to win the Mega Millions jackpot and share it with our crew who always stand together,” said Graves in a release obtained by the Cincinnati Enquirer.

“None of what we do at Cane’s would be possible without our crew, which is why we are always looking for ways to bring them a little extra fun, and if we’re lucky, a surprise on Wednesday morning.”

There has been no news on the winner yet as of Wednesday afternoon, but hopefully, the odds are in the crew’s favour.
