The Pennsylvania Lottery has sold its first jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket, a $149 million prize from the Tuesday, May 20 drawing. The jackpot-winning ticket was sold at a store in McKeesport, Allegheny County.
The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 10-40-63-64-69, plus the Megaball, 07. The ticket has an annuity value of $149 million or a cash value of $86.1 million, less 25 percent federal withholding.
The retailer will receive a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
This is the Pennsylvania Lottery’s first jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket since joining the multi-state game in 2010. The Pennsylvania Lottery has sold 17 jackpot-winning Powerball® tickets since joining that multi-state game in 2002.
The Mega Millions jackpot had been rolling since the last jackpot was won in California on April 4.
The prize must be claimed and the ticket validated before Lottery officials can identify the winner. Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.
