Pennsylvania Lottery Sells $250,000 Mega Millions Winning Ticket
One lucky lottery winner purchased a ticket at La Familia Latina Supermarket, 3357 N. 5th St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the September 9th drawing. The lottery winner matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers for a whopping $250,000 prize. Had the winner purchased a Megaplier ticket, they would be looking forward to $1,000,000 instead.
According to the Pennsylvania Lottery, the retailer will receive $500 for selling the winning ticket. At this time, no one has come forward to claim the prize. Lottery officials say if you're the lottery winner, sign the back of your ticket immediately, and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, PA! The winning Mega Millions numbers for Friday's drawing were 7, 12, 19, 23, 31, and a Mega Ball of 45.
The winner will most likely be cursing themselves for not spending an extra dollar on the Megaplier option! Wouldn't you be upset as well, knowing you could have been a millionaire for $1?
