– A York County convenience store and gas station sold a winning Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions® with Megaplier® ticket worth $2 million for the Tuesday, December 17, drawing.
The ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 22-30-53-55-56, but not the yellow Mega Ball 16, to win $2 million, less applicable withholding. It was sold with the $1 Megaplier option, which boosted the prize to $2 million instead of $1 million, because the multiplier drawn was two.
Rutter’s, 2125 N. Susquehanna Trail, York, earns a $10,000 selling bonus for selling the winning ticket.
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
