$1 million winning Mega Millions ticket

The $1 million Mega Millions ticket was bought by a lucky player in Pittsburgh last week, the Pennsylvania Lottery said on Monday.

The winning Mega Millions ticket matched each of the five white balls that were drawn on April 7. The successful combinations are 12, 32, 49, 51, and 66.

If the ticket had matched the No. 21 Mega Ball, the winner's payout may have been considerably greater, according to the lottery. The jackpot is now hovering at $441 million before the drawing on April 11.

For selling the winning ticket, the Greensburg Newsstand on West Otterman Street in Greensburg received a bonus of $5,000.

The reward must be claimed by the winner within a year of the drawing date. According to the lottery, winners may only be determined when prizes have been collected and tickets have been verified.

Anybody who has a winning ticket should sign the back, contact 1-800-692-7481 to start an online prize claim, or go to palottery.com for further details.

In Mega Millions, players must properly choose five winning numbers between 1 and 70, as well as a sixth number, known as the Mega Ball, between 1 and 25. If participants choose any set of winning numbers, they will be eligible for prizes beginning at $2.
