$250,000 Winning Mega Millions Ticket Sold In Rathdrum; Do You Have The Ticket?
BOISE, Idaho- The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that a Mega Millions ticket worth $250,000 was sold for last night's draw in Rathdrum, Idaho. The winning numbers for last night's $86 million draw were 11, 19, 40, 43, 44 and the Megaball was 33. This winning ticket matched the first five "white ball" numbers, but not the Megaball.
"We are encouraging all of our players to check all of their draw tickets very carefully right now," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "Too often, we see players who think they didn't win because they did not match the Megaball. In the case of the $250,000 winning Mega Millions ticket, they matched every number but the Megaball and now have a ticket worth a quarter of a million dollars."
This is the second $250,000 winning Mega Millions ticket in Idaho, both of which were sold in the greater Coeur d'Alene area. The previous $250,000 winner was sold in Coeur d'Alene for the April 17, 2010 draw. That winning ticket has not yet been claimed.
Players have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their winnings from Idaho Lottery Headquarters in Boise. With no jackpot winner last night, the Mega Millions jackpot for Saturday night is an estimated $100 million.
