$25,000 Mega Millions Megaplier Prize Claimed
$10,000 Daily Numbers Winner
A Lincoln woman claimed the $25,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® prize from the December 15th drawing. Her Quick Pick ticket matched four white balls and the Mega Ball to win the standard payout of $5,000. She also added the Megaplier® feature for an additional dollar, which multiplied the prize by 5, the Megaplier® number drawn, to equal $25,000. She was ecstatic about her win and said, "it came at a perfect time." She has been through some recent challenges, including her beloved horse undergoing surgery. Therefore, she will be using the majority of the money won to pay off some expenses. The winning ticket was purchased at Smith St. Shell, 1525 Smith St., North Providence.
