$1 Million Mega Millions® Megaplier® Winning Ticket Claimed

April 26, 2013

$1 Million Mega Millions® Megaplier® Winning Ticket Claimed

The $1 million Mega Millions® Megaplier® winner from the April 16th drawing has come forward. A gentleman from Central Falls claimed the "Mega" prize with tears in his eyes.  He thought he was coming in to claim $250,000 for matching five numbers. However, since he opted to play the Megaplier® feature for an extra dollar on the wager, his $250,000 turned into $1 million.  He nearly fell over when he found out that he had won that much.

He is a retired bus driver for handicapped children and has 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren of his own.  He was overjoyed and still shaking when asked what he'll do with his winnings.  He caught his breath and told Validations that he's going to Disney World!  He also mentioned that he might buy a house. 

He purchased the $1 million winning ticket at Stop & Shop at 70 Mendon Road in Cumberland.

Tonight's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $103 million.
