There’s a New Millionaire in Central New York
Friday's Mega Millions Jackpot was worth 104 million dollars and there was only one winning ticket. A ticket sold in Central New York.
Someone who stopped by a convenience store in Cortland County, and picked up a Mega Millions lottery ticket is a whole lot richer. According to the New York Lottery, the ticket was sold at a Mirabito on Route 281 in Preble.
The winning numbers for Friday's drawing were:
5, 39, 54, 63, 66,
Mega Ball: 15
There was only one ticket sold that matched all of those numbers including the mega ball.
There were two other big winners in Friday's Mega Millions drawing (obviously, not "jackpot big," but still pretty good). One ticket matched all the numbers except the mega ball, and had the "Megaplier" option applied (for an extra dollar). That ticket ended up being worth 5 million dollars, and was also sold in New York. One other ticket matched all the numbers except the mega ball (but it didn't have the "Megaplier" option), for a prize of 1 million dollars. That ticket was sold in Michigan.
The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday, with an estimated jackpot of 15 million dollars.
