EYEWITNESS NEWS (WBRE/WYOU) — On Friday a PA Lottery retailer in Lackawanna County sold a winning Mega Millions® with a Megaplier® ticket worth $2 million.
According to officials with the Pennsylvania Lottery, Joe’s Kwik Marts, on 701 North Keyser Avenue in Scranton sold a lucky consumer a $2 million winning Mega Millions ticket.
The winning ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 13-36-45-57-67. Without the $1 Megaplier® option, the ticket would have been worth $1 million.
Joe’s Kwik Marts earns a $10,000 selling bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Winners are not known until prizes are claimed and tickets are validated.
Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions® winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. Winning tickets purchased at a lottery retailer should immediately be signed on the back.
