– A Cumberland County retailer sold a winning Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions® with Megaplier® ticket worth $4 million for the Friday, May 4, drawing.
The ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 04-05-10-12-18, but not the yellow Mega ball 21, to win $4 million, less applicable withholding. It was sold with the $1 Megaplier option, which boosted the prize to $4 million instead of $1 million because the multiplier drawn was four.
Walnut Bottom Gulf, 920 Walnut Bottom Road, Carlisle, earns a $10,000 selling bonus.
Winners can be identified only after prizes are claimed and tickets validated. The ticket holder should sign the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at the nearest Lottery office
. Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions prizes expire one year from the drawing date.
More than 19,200 other PA Lottery Mega Millions tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, including 4,544 tickets purchased with Megaplier that won prizes multiplied by four. Players should check every ticket, every time.
After Friday’s $143 million (annuity value) jackpot was won in Ohio, the Mega Millions jackpot reset to an estimated annuity value of $40 million for the Tuesday, May 8, drawing. Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Visit palottery.com for details on how to play.
