One Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million from the Dec. 11 drawing was sold at A Jay's Mini Mart, 300 E. Main St., Terre Hill, Lancaster County, the Pennsylvania lottery announced today.
The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 39-44-51-52-54, but not the yellow Mega Ball 13. It was purchased with the $1 Megaplier option, which awards a $1 million match-five prize, less 25 percent federal withholding.
Had the ticket been purchased without the Megaplier option, it would have earned a $250,000 prize.
The store will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling a winning ticket.
Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.
The Mega Millions jackpot grew to an estimated annuity value of $35 million, or $26.7 million cash, for the Friday drawing.
