It wasn’t a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, but a lucky Michigan Lottery player did win $1 million playing Mega Millions Friday night.
A ticket bought at the CVS pharmacy, located at 18130 West 10 Mile Road in Southfield matched the five white balls drawn Friday night – 26-28-29-39-49 – to win a $1 million prize.
The winner should contact the Michigan Lottery Player Relations Division at 844-887-6836, option 2 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prize. The prize must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing. Mega Millions tickets 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 45 states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Mega Millions tickets may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com and at any of the Lottery’s 10,500 retailers around the state until 10:45 p.m. the day of the drawing.
