$40,000 Mega Millions® Ticket Claimed
The $40,000 Mega Millions® ticket from the August 28 drawing has been claimed by a gentleman from Lincoln. He plans to save the money but will also do something fun with it in his retirement.
The winning Quick Pick ticket matched four numbers and the Mega Ball number, for a standard payout of $10,000. The player opted to purchase the Megaplier® for an extra dollar on the wager, which multiplied the $10,000 prize by four, last night’s Megaplier® number, to equal $40,000.
Stop & Shop at 70 Mendon Rd., Cumberland, sold the winning ticket.
Tonight's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $83 million.
