$2 Million Mega Millions Prize Won in Texas
11th December 2017 11:47 AM
A ticket holder from Texas will have a Christmas to remember after snapping up a $2 million Mega Millions prize in Friday’s drawing, the largest prize awarded on the night. The player, who has yet to come forward, bought the winning ticket with added Megaplier, which multiplies non-jackpot prizes by a factor decided at random on the night, at Cefco Food Store at 1499 S. Loop in Stephenville. If you bought a Mega Millions ticket in the town, which sits 70 miles south-west of Fort Worth, make sure to check your numbers and visit your nearest lottery office to collect your prize.
What were the winning Mega Millions numbers?
The Mega Millions numbers for Friday December 8th were 6, 37, 46, 60, 70, and the MegaBall was 24. If you added the optional Megaplier to your ticket, your non-jackpot prize will be multiplied by two. There was no top prize winner in the drawing, but a total of 442,147 players were successful in the remaining prize tiers.
The big Texas winner matched five main numbers to win the second-tier prize and other successful players on the night included five ticket holders who are now $10,000 richer, having matched four main numbers plus the Mega Ball.
