Who’s The New Millionaire in Eldora?
One Iowan is going to have a fantastic Christmas and a VERY Happy New Year!
Someone who bought a Mega Millions® ticket at an Eldora convenience store won a $1 million prize in Tuesday night’s drawing.
The $1 million-winning ticket was purchased at Casey’s, 1807 Edgington Ave. in Eldora. The ticket came within one number of having a share of Tuesday’s $372 million jackpot, matching the first five numbers but missing the Mega Ball. A single ticket purchased in Ohio won the jackpot.
Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 22-30-53-55-56 and Mega Ball 16. The Megaplier® was 2. Two other tickets — one in New York and one in West Virginia — also won $1 million prizes in Tuesday’s drawing, and a $2 million-winning ticket was purchased in Pennsylvania.
This is the sixth prize of at least $1 million won in Iowa this year. Casey’s will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Iowa Lottery for selling the $1 million-winning ticket at one of its stores. Prizes of $1 million must be claimed at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Clive. If the winner or winners have questions, they should call the Iowa Lottery at 515-725-7900.
