Mega Millions® Ticket Worth $250,000 Sold In Bucks County

March 26 Jackpot Rises to $26 Million

MIDDLETOWN, Pa., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 from the March 22 drawing was sold at Bensalem Beer & Soda, 1919 Street Road, Bensalem, Bucks County.

The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls, 14-27-34-37-41, but not the yellow Mega Ball 38, for a prize of $250,000, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The store will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Lottery officials cannot confirm the identity of the winner until the prize is claimed and the ticket is validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

The Lottery encourages the holder of the winning ticket to sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 717-702-8146 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of Lottery's seven area offices.

Claims may be filed at Lottery headquarters Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.

The Mega Millions jackpot grew to an estimated annuity value of $26 million, or $19.2 million cash, for the Tuesday, March 26, drawing.

More than 12,000 other Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions players also won prizes in the March 22 drawing.

In addition to awarding more than $86.9 million in prizes to Bucks County winners, the Pennsylvania Lottery contributed nearly $36.4 million to programs serving the county's older residents in the 2011-12 fiscal year.

How to Play Mega Millions: Mega Millions tickets cost $1 per play. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 and one number from 1 to 46 (the Mega Ball). Players can pick their own numbers or have numbers randomly selected by computer. For an extra $1 per play, players can add the Megaplier. Prior to the Mega Millions drawing, the Megaplier number – ranging from two to four – is randomly selected.

A player who matches five white balls and purchased Megaplier wins $1 million. Other non-jackpot prizes are multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn.

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 participating jurisdictions. Drawings are held on Tuesdays and Fridays.
