Erie County Woman Claims $4M Mega Millions Lottery Ticket
An Erie County woman has come forward to claim her winnings after purchasing a Mega Millions ticket worth $4 million, according to Pennsylvania Lottery officials.
Leann W. matched all five white balls drawn, 34-44-57-62-70, but not the yellow Mega Ball 14.
The ticket was sold at the Giant Eagle GetGo at 6400 Peach St. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
It was sold with the $1 million Megaplier option, which increased the prize from $1 million to $4 million because the multiplier drawn was four.
A single ticket sold in New York for the same drawing matched all five white balls drawn and the Mega Ball to win the big $437 million jackpot.
More than 92,900 other Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions tickets won prizes of various amounts. It includes 17,661 tickets purchased with the Megaplier option, which won prizes that were multiplied by four.
