Retired Air Force officer claims $4 million prize in MO
In Missouri, Denise Bazan of Norwood, claimed her April 16 winner of $4 million. As a recap, the winning numbers for that drawing were 17 – 27 – 28 – 50 – 55 with a gold Mega Ball of 25. Finally, the Megaplier drawn was 4X.
Bazan actually did not check her winner until a friend called a few days after the drawing. She stated:
“My friend said, ‘Well, I know you bought a Mega Millions ticket. Was it you?’ I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ and she said, ‘Someone in Mountain Grove won $4 million!’”
Bazan’s ticket matched all five white balls. Typically, the game’s second-place prize, known as a Match 5, yields $1 million. However, Bazan opted for the $1 Megaplier, boosting her prize to $4 million. Finally, Bazan used the Missouri Lottery app to check her winner.
