PHILADELPHIA (TBEN) — Friday the 13th turned out to be a pretty lucky day for someone.
One player won the second largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.
A Maine lottery player matched all six numbers to win the top prize of $1.35 billion.
But one lucky player in Pennsylvania also wins big after matching five numbers to win a million dollars.
Someone matched all five white Mega Millions balls, but missed the golden Mega Ball, meaning they won the second prize of $1 million.
Saturday morning the big questions were: who are they? And where was the winning ticket sold?
That information has not yet been released, but we have the.
The jackpot winner is the first in Maine history. That lucky person has the option of spreading the $1.35 billion jackpot annually over 29 years, though most people choose to take the reduced lump sum.
In this case, that works out to an estimated $724.6 million.
Pennsylvania is one of 10 states where a million dollar winning ticket was sold.
We’re not exactly sure where it sold in the Commonwealth just yet, but it’s worth checking your ticket because it could be you.
Philadelphia recently had some lottery luck when ain South Philadelphia.
