$4 million winner from Mountain Grove, MO
A lottery player that purchased a ticket in Missouri is now $4 million richer or will be, after claiming the ticket from the last drawing. As a reminder, last Friday’s winning numbers for the April 16 drawing were 17 – 27 – 28 – 50 – 55 and a Mega Ball of 25. Additionally, the Megaplier was 4X.
Murphy USA located on 2106 N. Main Avenue in Mountain Grove sold the winner. The ticket matched all five of the white balls, enough to claim the second-place prize of $1 million known as a Match 5 winner. However, the winner added on the optional $1 Megaplier option, which means the prize quadrupled to $4 million. Definitely, a worthwhile $1 investment.
In MO, winners have 180 days to claim their prizes. For a prize of this size, the owner of the ticket needs to sign the back and keep it safe. Then, an appointment must be set at one of the MO Lottery offices.
