AUSTIN (CBSNewsTexas.com) – A stop at Circle K in The Colony turned into millions of dollars for one North Texan last month.
He or she claimed their Mega Millions prize worth $4 million for the drawing on Sept. 26. The winning ticket was sold the store at 5208 S. Colony Blvd.
The winning Quick Pick ticket with Megaplier matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (15-30-35-42-60), but not the Mega Ball number (16). The Megaplier number was 4.
A bit more about the game: Mega Millions is played by choosing five numbers from a field of 70 and one Mega Ball number from the second field of 25 numbers. To win the Mega Millions jackpot, players must match all six numbers drawn including the Mega Ball. Players matching fewer numbers may not win the jackpot, but could still walk away winners.
Mega Millions currently offers a $20 million starting jackpot and a second-tier (Match 5+0) prize of $1 million. By choosing the Megaplier feature for $1 more per Play, players can multiply their non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four or five times, winning as much as $5 million.
Drawings are broadcast each Tuesday and Friday at 10:12 p.m. CT.
