Mega Millions ticket worth $2M sold in West Virginia
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A Mega Millions ticket worth $2 million has been sold in West Virginia.
The West Virginia Lottery says in a news release the ticket for Tuesday’s drawing matched five numbers and missed the Mega Ball number. The ticketholder also paid an extra $1 for the Megaplier option, meaning the prize doubled from $1 million to $2 million. The ticket was sold at the Pilot Flying J in Sutton.
No tickets matched all six numbers in Tuesday’s drawing, pushing Friday’s jackpot to an estimated $444 million.
The numbers drawn Tuesday were 9, 21, 34, 2 and 50, and the gold Mega Ball was 21.
