A lucky player matched the five white balls drawn – 08-12-23-51-73 – in Tuesday’s drawing to win a $1 million prize. The winning ticket was bought at the BP gas station, located at 15255 Hall Road in Macomb.
This is the second time in two weeks that a Michigan player has won $1 million playing Mega Millions. On July 4, a player won $1 million with a ticket that was bought at the Exxon gas station, located at 24938 Ford Road in Dearborn Heights.
The $1 million winners should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prizes. The prizes must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing. Tickets for Mega Millions are valid for one year from the drawing date.
Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. Each Mega Millions play is only $1. For an additional $1 per play, players have the opportunity to add a “Megaplier” that can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Tickets for Mega Millions drawings may be purchased at the Lottery’s 11,000 retailers around the state until 10:45 p.m. the day of the drawing.
