$2 million Mega Millions ticket sold in South Philadelphia

A $2 million Mega Millions ticket drawn Friday was sold in South Philadelphia, according to lottery officials.

The winning ticket, sold at Shayona Newsstand at 2303 S. Broad St., correctly matched all five white balls, 04-14-29-31-47, but not the yellow Mega Ball, 09. Because it was purchased with the Megaplier option and the Megaplier number drawn was 02, the ticket is worth a $2 million prize.

The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the 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 Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices.

Claims may be filed at Lottery headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.

Because no jackpot-winning ticket was sold for the October 2 drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot rolled to an estimated annuity value of $55 million for the Tuesday, October 6, drawing.
