$1 Million Mega Millions Prize Won in Michigan. The Jackpot Grows to $336 million.
28th September 2018 3:06 PM
A lucky player from a village in Montcalm County won the largest prize in the Friday 21st September Mega Millions draw. The jackpot surpasses the $300 million mark for the third time this year after no ticket matched the 5 + Megaball in last Tuesday’s draw.
A new millionaire in Michigan
A trading post in Pierson, a small Michigan village located about 30 miles north of Grand Rapids and 40 miles east of Muskegon, is where the ticket that matched 5 numbers in the 21st September Mega Millions draw was sold. The lucky holder of the winning ticket will take home a $1 million prize, the largest for that draw.
These were the winning Mega Millions numbers drawn last Friday:
01-02-11-52-64 - Mega Ball 9 - Megaplier 4x
The winner didn’t include the Megaplier option: for just $1 more the prize could have been an amazing $4 million.
With a population of just 178 people, it’s unlikely that the winner is a resident of the village. It’s more likely it was someone passing through, but whoever they are, the prize must be collected within one year from the draw date at the Michigan Lottery's headquarters in Lansing.
Another $1 Million was awarded in Michigan on July 24th when an 82 year old woman from Detroit matched the 5 white balls. The last Michigan player to scoop the Mega Millions jackpot was Kevin Blake, a man from Waterford who won half of the lottery's $42 million jackpot on Friday 13th October 2017.

The winning numbers from the Mega Millions draw of Tuesday 25th September were:
48-32-8-61-16 - Mega Ball 12 - Megaplier 2x
No one matched the 5 white balls and the Megaball to hit the jackpot.
The largest win of this draw goes to a New York player who matched the “5” to win $1 million. This player also failed to add the Megaplier option which would have doubled the prize.
There were 21 tickets worth $10,000 when they matched 4 numbers + Megaball. One of them also included the Megaplier so its holder won $20.000.
The Mega Millions jackpot has rolled over again, climbing to $336 million (cash option: $195 million), which is currently the largest prize up for grabs among all the lotteries worldwide.
