Online NC lottery ticket wins $1 million
The last drawing of the Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday, April 13, had one big second-place winner. Moreover, according to the NC Education lottery, the ticket was purchased online directly through the website.
As a recap, the $2 ticket with no additional $1 Megaplier matched all five white balls drawn, which were 10 – 15 – 19 – 45 – 68. However, the winner barely missed winning the whole jackpot by not matching the Mega Ball drawn, which was 9. Nonetheless, the ticket is still worth $1 million in prize money.
In NC, players have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the prize.
