WICHITA CO., TX (KFDX/KJTL) — An Electra resident claimed a Mega Millions prize worth $1 million.
The drawing was held on February 12, 2021. The winning ticket was purchased at Allsups in Electra. The claimant elected to remain anonymous.
The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (5-14-24-25-27), but not the Mega Ball number (14).
Mega Millions is played by choosing five numbers from a field of 70 and one Mega Ball number from the second field of 25 numbers. To win the Mega Millions jackpot, players must match all six numbers drawn including the Mega Ball.
By choosing the Megaplier® for $1 more per play, players can multiply their non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four or five times, winning as much as $5 million.
