Middletown, PA (STL.News) The Pennsylvania Lottery has awarded its largest online prize ever to a player from Luzerne County. Mega Millions® awarded an online player $4 million, a prize that was won on Tuesday, January 18.
The ticket matched all five white balls drawn, 4-19-39-42-52, but not the yellow Mega Ball, 9, to win the $4 million prize, less applicable withholding. It was sold with the $1 Megaplier® option, which boosted the prize to $4 million instead of $1 million, because the multiplier drawn was four.
