$10,000 Winning Mega Millions® Ticket Claimed
Arthur Keegan of Londonberry, NH claimed the winning $10,000 Mega Millions® ticket today. He and his wife were visiting Rhode Island when they purchased the ticket, and weren’t able to come back to the Lottery headquarters until today. They plan on using some of the money towards new tires and Christmas presents.
The ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number. The standard payout for this type of win is $10,000. The winner did not purchase the Megaplier® feature for an additional dollar on the wager. If the player had opted for Megaplier®, the $10,000 prize would have been multiplied by 4, the Megaplier® number from Tuesday’s draw, to equal $40,000.
Tonight’s estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $54 million.
