$2 Million Lottery Ticket Sold in Twin Falls County
UPDATE: Idaho Lottery officials have issued a correction to the numbers released earlier.
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – Someone who bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket in Twin Falls County is a millionaire this morning. The Idaho Lottery announced that a $2,000,000 winning ticket was sold in the Magic Valley with the winning numbers 2, 3, 19, 52, 58, and the Megaball was 16 (Idaho Lottery issued a correction to the published numbers). The Idaho Lottery said the winner has 180 days to claim their prize in Boise. “We encourage everyone who played Mega Millions for last night’s draw to check their tickets carefully for winners,” Idaho Lottery Manager Jeff Anderson said in a prepared statement. “Too often we see players not realizing they have a big winning ticket because they didn’t win the jackpot. In this case, the ticket matches the first five numbers and a Megaplier, which turns the ticket into a $2 million winner!” In addition to the $2 million winner, there were a total of 3,100 Mega Millions winning tickets drawn Wednesday in Idaho. Lottery officials advise people to sign the back of their tickets before claiming their prize.
