This Texas Store Just Sold a $4 Million Mega Millions Quick Pick
The Mega Millions jackpot was up to $230 million for the drawing on Tuesday, September 26. No one matched all six numbers, so that means the next drawing on Friday will be worth approximately $267 million, with an estimated cash-out value of $123.6 million.
Winners in Texas and Florida
Tuesday's winning numbers were 15-30-35-42-60. The gold Mega Ball was 16. Even though nobody correctly matched all six numbers, a player in Florida and another in Texas matched all five non-Mega Ball numbers.
The Texas player spent the extra buck on their Quick Pick which brought the Megaplier option into play. The Megaplier number was 4, which means that the $1 million payout instantly multiplied to $4 million.
Not a bad return for spending one extra dollar.
This winning ticket was purchased at Circle K, located at 5208 S. Colony Boulevard in The Colony, Texas. That's the store below.
The Colony, dotted in red below, is located north of Dallas and southwest of Frisco, right along the eastern shore of Lake Lewisville.
Powerball Jackpot Continues to Rise
The jackpot for the next Powerball drawing will be worth $835 million, with an estimated cash value of $390.6 million. That drawing will take place Wednesday night (September 27).
Last week, a player in Lytle, Texas, purchased a Quick Pick along with the Power Play option and won $2 million by matching 5 out of the 6 numbers. Lytle is located southwest of San Antonio.
