Adding the $1 Megaplier option to a Mega Millions play turned a $1 million prize into a $5 million prize for a lucky Saginaw County Michigan Lottery player.
A lucky player matched the five white balls drawn – 17-27-41-51-52 – in Friday’s drawing good for a $1 million win prize. Thanks to the Megaplier, the player’s prize was multiplied by five for a $5 million prize. The winning ticket was bought at the Admiral gas station, located at 12800 Brady Road in Chesaning.
The winner from Friday’s Mega Millions drawing should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prize. The prize 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 $2. 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.
