Mega Millions Rolls to $548 Million; Ticket Worth $1 Million Sold in Montgomery County
 
Middletown, PA — Before the Mega Millions® jackpot rolled to an annuity value of $548 million, a Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million from the Tuesday, October 9, drawing was sold at Wegmans, 500 Montgomeryville Mall, North Wales, Montgomery County.  
 
The ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 20-22-39-54-60, but not the yellow Mega Ball 18, to win a $1 million prize, less applicable tax withholding. The store earns a $5,000 selling bonus.
Winners can be identified only after prizes are claimed and tickets validated. The ticket holder should sign the ticket and file a claim at the nearest Lottery office. Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions prizes expire one year from the drawing date.
 
More than 73,000 other Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions tickets won prizes in the drawing, including over 12,000 tickets purchased with the Megaplier option that won prizes multiplied by three. Players should check every ticket, every time, and claim lower-tier prizes at a Lottery retailer.
 
The Mega Millions jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $548 million, or $309.2 million cash, for the Friday, October 12, drawing.
