Single ticket wins the MegaMillions jackpotMonday August 30th 2010
It is no secret that the MegaMillions has been rolling over for some time now, creating the biggest lottery jackpot in the US at the weekend. There was a massive $133 million up for grabs for the draw on Saturday and the news has reached us that a single ticket wins the MegaMillions jackpot on this draw. There is very little that we can tell you until the lucky winner comes forward to claim this amazing lottery prize but we can reveal that winner is from California.
The winning MegaMillions lottery ticket was purchased from Bottle Liquor and Deli at 999 Main St. In Morro Bay and the store is set to receive a $665,000 bonus for selling the winning MegaMillions ticket. So if you purchased a lotto ticket for the MegaMillions draw on Saturday from this store and have not yet checked your ticket, then check it now. You could be sitting on a $133 million fortune and not even realise. The winning numbers for the draw were 4, 10, 26, 32, 41 and the Mega Ball was 31.
This MegaMillions win is the largest win in San Luis Obispo County and also one of the largest in the state of California, although the record for the state is held by a woman in southern California who won a cool $266 million MegaMillions jackpot back in May, making this the largest ever single individual win on record for the state of California.
Those of you who buy lottery tickets for the next MegaMillions draw will be playing for a jackpot of $12 million.
